Reefmonkey Posted October 15, 2018 Share Posted October 15, 2018 (edited) Driving past another new Starbucks location in my neighborhood this morning, got to thinking. Starbucks is so ubiquitous now, and has been for so long, with a location every few hundred yards (it sometimes seems), but I do remember a time when Starbucks was a novelty in Houston. I'm trying to get an idea of where and when Starbucks really exploded on the scene here in Houston. Where and when does everyone remember going to their first Starbucks in Houston in the 90s? Me: circa 1994 5508 FM 1960 W (NE corner of FM 1960 and Champion Forest Drive - since moved to the NW corner) Houston Chronicle says the first Starbucks was the Highland Village location, then the Galleria, then Westheimer and Fountainview, and then a fourth location opened in February 1995, but it doesn't say where. I'm not sure if that is quite true, I distinctly remember going with my family to Starbucks after dinner up at the 1960/Champion Forest Drive store, my senior year of high school when it was a novelty for us (I was class of 1994). Perhaps though that intersection wasn't considered to be in the Houston city limits at that time, so the Chronicle doesn't count it.
