Jackson State University unveiled its new on-campus Starbucks during a grand opening ceremony at 10 a.m., Friday, Jan. 24, on the ground floor of the H.T. Sampson Library, located on the university's main campus.
The grand opening ceremony featured a ribbon cutting, plus the shop offered a small coffee and any muffin at the price of $3. Raffle tickets were also given away.
The store will be open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays. It will be closed on Saturdays.
The menu will consist of the normal product line of Starbucks coffees, pastries, danishes, cookies and sandwiches as well as other snacks and drinks. The store will also provide space for meetings and social gatherings on campus.
Everyone who came to the grand opening and purchased an item had to post a picture of their purchase or themselves inside the JSU Starbucks to their Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account using the hashtag, #StarbucksAtJSU.
Twenty people were randomly selected throughout the day to win a JSU prize.
SodexoMAGIC, the university's food services provider, brought Starbucks to the university to ensure the availability of high quality coffee and pastries for the Jackson State community.
