A member of Starbucks’ media relations team confirmed June 4 the Seattle-based company is evaluating whether the Magnolia location at 6643 FM 1488 will begin offering the Starbucks Evening Menu. The menu is available after 4 p.m. and includes a small selection of red and white wines, according to the company’s website.
If selected, the Magnolia store could become one of the first Starbucks locations in Texas to offer wine as part of its drink menu. Presently, the Starbucks Evening Menu is available at select locations in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Orlando and Washington D.C.
Paperwork was recently posted in the Magnolia storefront window displaying a beer and wine permit application, said Matthew Monds, manager of the Magnolia Starbucks location. However, Monds said he could not confirm if or when the Magnolia Starbucks location could begin serving wine.
“We are a prospective store, but it’s not guaranteed that we’re doing that,” Monds said.
The Starbucks location in Magnolia has not yet received a permit to serve wine on the premises, according to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission permit department. All businesses in the process of applying for a beer and wine permit are required to post a sign for 60 days to give the public a notice of intent.
The Starbucks Evening Menu also includes small meals and appetizers, such as flatbread, cheese plates, truffle macaroni and cheese and artichoke spinach dip to pair with the wines.
