SEATTLE- Construction has begun on a 300,000-sf roasting facility for Starbucks Coffee Co. The Carson City, NV plant will be housed in a Douglas County business park, and its purpose is to supply Starbucks’ Southwest markets.

“This is an exciting result of Starbucks continued expansion,” Ted Garcia, Starbucks executive vice president, Supply Chain and Coffee Operations, said in announcing the news.

“As the Company continues to grow, we must continue to maintain world-class roasting, packaging, manufacturing and logistics infrastructures. When this facility is complete, it will be capable of supplying hundreds of existing and new locations with our fresh roasted coffee and other products.”

It will house equipment and operations to receive, roast, package and ship Starbucks coffee and to receive, store, bundle and ship other Starbucks products to retail stores in Southern California and other Southwest markets.

As with all Starbucks roasting plants, the CVRP will also have a tasting room.Other roasting plants on the Starbucks’ U.S. roster include on in Kent, WA and another in York, PA.
