Driven to Espresso: Drive-through Coffee Stands in the Northwest

If you think coffee culture is cool, you have come to the right place. I have loads of information and opinions to share about espresso in the Pacific Northwest, especially the drive-through phenomenon.

No drive-throughs, please

If you are dreaming of opening your own drive-through coffee stand, better not be dreaming in Glencoe, Illinois. According to the Chicago Tribune, they have an outright ban on drive-throughs of any kind.

Also, the nearby town of Northbrook has been reluctant, but recently permitted one at a McDonalds.

It's possible that many other communities do not allow them, and it's even more likely that many of them require a special permit, so it's always best to start at city hall before your dreams become plans.

We have a new Starbucks where we live, but the closest Satrbucks drive thru is about 15 miunutes away. It seems our council has something against the coffee drive thru, too! So glad to hear your book is finding acceptance.
