Midtown Whole Foods Market, featuring a robot barista, sets November opening date

The Whole Foods Market located in the Pearl Marketplace development at 515 Elgin St., Houston, will open Nov. 7, the grocer announced. The 40,000-square-foot store will offer many of the same features found in its 11 other Houston locations—such as fresh seasonal produce, a full-service butcher and bakery—but it will be the first to offer Briggo, a “robot barista” that produces customized drinks on-demand via mobile app or touchscreen kiosk. Opening day celebrations include complimentary coffee, product sampling and music, with the first 200 customers receiving a reusable canvas tote bag and a savings card with values ranging between $5 and $100. The store is also donating a portion of its proceeds on Nov. 14 to the community garden nonprofit Urban Harvest. 346-353-7501. www.wholefoods.com
