Starbucks Corp. debuted this week its first express unit in New York City.
Described by the company as an “espresso shot” version of a traditional Starbucks coffeehouse, the 538-square-foot location at 14 Wall Street is designed for speed and efficiency.
Workers take orders at the entryway with hand-held devices. Mobile point-of-sale positions are placed throughout the unit to help manage wait times.
