NEW: Mobile Starbucks Coming To JMU
HARRISONBURG - James Madison University is just one of three universities nationwide chosen to participate in a pilot for mobile Starbucks trucks.
The truck is expected to start roaming campus on Monday, the first day of classes, according to a press release posted on the company's website. JMU already has a Starbucks on campus, and another is located just outside campus off Port Republic Road.
The truck, though, will stop in different parts of campus throughout the day with adjustable business hours to deliver students' caffeine and pastry fixes at greater convenience.
The pilot is part of a partnership with Aramark, the food service company contracted with JMU. Arizona State University also has a Starbucks truck, and one will begin service at Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina on Sept. 18.
