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