A Step Toward Starbucks Infill in Industrial Northwest Houston

Starbucks at 13339 West Road, Houston, TX 77041

Northwest Houston Starbucks, 2016A Stand-alone Starbucks is now open at West Rd. and N. Eldridge Pkwy. in the parking lot of the Raceway gas station on the southwest corner. The new building appears to be the first Starbucks to encroach into the area bounded by 290, Beltway 8, Hwy. 6, and I-10 — though it still skirts the perimeter of the area. (Roughly half of that region is occupied by the Addicks Reservoir). The coffee shop joins Hot Donuts in the salon-rich strip center across West Rd.; nearby probable non-competitors include the ITEX Piping International and Berlin Packaging facilities.

  • Starbuck’s has yet to significantly encroach anywhere east of 288, aside from UH and Gulfgate. Maybe that’s a good thing.

  • As the logo of a local cafe says, “Corporate coffee sucks”! Have never been a fan of Starbucks when so many other quality cafe’s abound the city… Siphon, Revival, Brasil, Common Bond, Empire, etc…
