Starbucks opened a store with drive-thru Monday next to Rite Aid on Highway 104, east of the Miller Bay Road intersection.

New Starbucks stores have been popping up all over the county in the past year. The first standalone Starbucks on Bainbridge Island opened in 2014, along with a Wheaton Way location in Bremerton.

Starbucks added a store and drive-thru at Silverdale Way and Bucklin Hill Road in July. Another is planned for Poulsbo’s College Marketplace. 

The opening of the Kingston café brings the county’s Starbucks count to 21 (including Starbucks kiosks inside larger stores).
