I live near downtown Augusta and frequent Starbuck’s in the Washington Rd. Kroger. After reading this article I intend to make a point of driving up to Rooted every chance I get. Those rascals! If they’re going to behave like Wal*Mart, they need to change their name to Star*Bucks. Can Rooted somehow position advertising signs visible to Starbuck’s approaches that direct people their way? <>
Hey Barry and Michael….
I actually live in Riverwood and this has caused quite a “coffee stir” here. Interesting reasons to support both. The one interesting thing I learned from talking to local commercial real estate folks— is that like you—they think extra people will make the trip—and there will be extra customers in 2021 because of the huge growth in Evans. Thanks for commenting!
I’ll always support a local coffee shop over a conglomerate whose coffee beans taste burnt and bitter. It’s out of my way, but I’ll make the trip to support Rooted.
This is a naive question but… Didn’t Starbucks need county approval to build? Why didn’t the county say “No, we have a coffee shop in that location.” and support the local guy??
