Starbucks Shipping Container Drive Through (Photos)

We reported on the Starbucks shipping container drive through previously but now we have some photos of the first one. If this takes off very likely you will see more and more of these types of Starbucks cafe’s appearing as they are not only cheap and practical but also highly mobile allowing moving to new lots if better contract conditions crop up for store positioning.Starbucks shipping container cafeStarbucks shipping container cafe

The artwork added around the shipping container also makes it more of a feature than a blot on the landscape. Its things like this which make cargotecture more acceptable to the masses or more importantly allows then to be passed by planning authorities as they blend or enhance rather than damage the look of the surrounding area.
