Grab A Cup Of Joe At New Starbucks, West End

Ribbon cutting for West End Starbucks.

Joined by City Council members Matt McCarthy and Scott Burns, Mayor Joe Ganim on Monday cut the ribbon for the city’s third Starbucks, this one 1705 Fairfield Avenue in the West End, joining Brookside Shopping Center in the North End and Steelpointe Harbor on the East Side.

Black Rock/West End City Council member Matt McCarthy speaks at groundbreaking.

The West End location is the product of Richard Koris’ third development and investment in Bridgeport.

Ganim statement:

“With all the positive developments happening in our City, I want to thank the department of Economic Development for their leadership in this project. I would also like to thank Richard Koris for his unwavering belief in our City as this proves to be his third investment in Bridgeport. It’s a pleasure to know that residents of the neighborhood, as well as myself, will be able to frequent this location for Starbucks as it is a part of many of our daily commute routes. We are grateful that this space has provided jobs to local residents and will be an integral part of the development of this neighborhood.”



  1. A 50 unit apartment House, and a Starbucks, now Black Rockers can sip their Starbucks coffee and wait for the many cars to pull out of (The Burns and McCarthy Towers) parking garage on the corner of Courtland St.
    It will be part of many of our daily commute routes for ever.

  2. We’re supposed to be impressed by “progress” under JG? Really?!

    BRIDGEPORT, CT — Four people suffered gunshot wounds early Sunday in two separate shootings in Bridgeport, according to police.

    The first incident occurred at about 1:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Fairfield Avenue, in which two people were shot and transported to area hospitals.

    “Both known victims were reported as being in stable condition with possible non-life threatening injuries,” said Scott Appleby, Bridgeport’s Director of Emergency Management.

    Bridgeport police received mutual aid from the Westport, Milford, Trumbull, Stratford and Monroe police departments, in addition to Connecticut State Police, to assist with the active investigation into the incident.

    The second shooting occurred two hours later at 3:30 a.m. on Highland Avenue, when police received multiple 911 calls and ShotSpotter activations about gunshots being fired, in addition to the presence of blood trails. ShotSpotter is a gunshot detection service that has been installed in parts of Bridgeport.

    Anyone with additional information on either case is asked to contact the Bridgeport Police at 203-576-TIPS.

    1. In the meantime, not single shot heard in El Salvador for a month and zero (0) deaths for many months straight. Feeling very safe here right now with all doors and a few windows left open.

  3. And the JG campaign is going to attend a pre-scheduled “celebration” Tuesday night, at the IN THE CITY bar — the 100 block of Fairfield Avenue, DOWNTOWN, where the first shooting took place?! They’re going to celebrate what?

  4. So the west end gets a stand alone Starbucks and the East end gets a Dunkin’ Donuts in a gas station. Wonder what caused the difference between the two communities coffee growth.
