Coffee chain enters market
An international coffee chain has opened a location inside a mall in the area.
Santa Fe Springs, California-based Gloria Jean’s Coffees-U.S.A. — the U.S. subsidiary of Castle Hill, Australia-based Gloria Jean’s Coffee — said this week a local franchisee, Eric Vo, has opened a location inside RiverTown Crossings in Grandville, at 3700 Rivertown Pkwy., across from Dick’s Sporting Goods.
It is the first West Michigan location for the chain.
The RiverTown shop will sell an assortment of chillers, mochas, lattes, hot cocoa, baked goods and pastries, along with the brand’s signature flavored whole beans for home brewing.
“We’re excited to serve the Kent County community at our new location in the RiverTown Crossings mall,” Vo said. “Gloria Jean’s Coffees is the perfect spot for shoppers to grab a quick beverage or snack, and we’re thrilled to provide mall guests with a unique and delicious coffee experience while they’re on the go.”
Store hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Founded in Illinois in 1979, Gloria Jean’s Coffees has 59 U.S. locations in operation with several scheduled to open by year’s end.
