Peet’s Coffee & Tea opening 16 stores in Chicago market

Chicago -- Peet’s Coffee & Tea is growing its footprint in the greater Chicago area, opening 16 stores in a phased rollout across the market this fall. Chicago is part of Peet’s aggressive U.S. expansion effort that began last year, which will bring its store total to nearly 300 locations nationwide by the end of the year.

Peet’s also has opened a flagship, at 20 N. Michigan Avenue. The store emphasizes the use of natural materials while connecting people to the history and community of Chicago. Key materials such as walnut orchard wood floors and espresso stained casework create an open, inviting space along with a “living wall” of plants that pays homage to the ivy covering Wrigley Field’s outfield wall.

“With today’s opening of our Michigan Avenue flagship, we’re unveiling a new, contemporary store experience that not only highlights the art and passion of our coffee making, but also connects to the history and spirit of Chicago.” said Dave Burwick, president and CEO of Peet’s Coffee & Tea.
