Starbucks will open its first Maspeth store on Grand Avenue later this month.
The chain coffee shop will be located at a site formerly operated by Mattress Firm.
“Starbucks is always looking for great locations to better meet the needs of our customers, and we are happy to confirm that we will be opening a new location on Grand Avenue in Queens,” a Starbucks spokeswoman said.
The café will be 2,000 square feet and employ 20 people, the spokeswoman said.
