INDIANAPOLIS, July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Starbucks kiosk has opened inside the JW Marriott Indianapolis. The Starbucks kiosk is a new concept for the world's leading coffee brand and is located on the second floor of the hotel adjacent to the Sky Bridge that connects the JW to the newly expanded Indiana Convention Center.
"The recently opened JW Marriott Indianapolis is the perfect location to unveil Starbucks' new concept," said Brent Hirschy, the store manager. "We're anticipating serving hundreds of thousands of hotel guests, convention goers and Indianapolis locals each year, and expect this location to be a great performer for the Starbucks brand."
The new Starbucks kiosk will feature the full Starbucks menu of coffee, handcrafted beverages, pastries and baked goods, sandwiches and snacks. It will be open Monday-Saturday 6 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday 6 a.m. – 2 p.m.
In addition to the new concept, this will also be one of the first locations to introduce the new iPhone pay application, which allows customers to order and pay for their order electronically.
"This new addition will not only be a great option for our guests attending meetings at our hotel or Convention Center, but also for many local clients, specifically our neighbors at White River State Park, the government center and the NCAA," said Scott Blalock, general manager of the JW Marriott Indianapolis. "With the JW Marriott and Starbucks, we have two world-class brands coming together to serve our guests."
White Lodging is proud of its ongoing relationship with Starbucks. This partnership has resulted in the opening of seven stores in six states over the last eight years.
