Wake up and smell the expansion

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 26, 2007 12:50 PM



Addressing what was apparently an acute caffeine shortage in Wellesley, Starbucks is about to open its second franchise in the town and the Exxon Mobile station at the corner of Washington and State streets is preparing to add back a coffee service where it once hosted a Dunkin Donuts franchise.

According to business representatives who met with the Board of Selectmen earlier this week, the new Starbucks will be a 20-seater at 190-A Linden Street and will open in mid- to late-September

The Exxon Mobil will soon begin serving Bengal Traders, a house brew it began selling at its Tiger Markets two years ago.
