The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Eases Woes of Austin's Workforce; Local Austin Cafe Creates Unique Austin Solution to Make That Morning Coffee Even Easier to Get on the Go
Beginning May 12, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will offer a curbside service at its South Lamar location in Austin. Also launching this month, The Coffee Bean will offer bicycle delivery to businesses around its North Lamar location. Customers can call in orders from the full menu and a courier will immediately be dispatched on bicycle with the order.
“Austin is distinct in so many ways, so we’re always looking for ways to create unique experiences for our customers that fit into their specific lifestyle and offer them personalized service. We’ve found that we have both very loyal customers and commuters that drive by our store every day and would love to stop in worry that they don’t have the time,” said Bill Duffy, Chief Operating Officer of Lone Star Bean, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s locally owned franchisee. “We like to think that, with this curbside service initiative, we’re doing our part to make Austin’s morning a little perkier.”
A full menu of food and beverages is offered with the curbside service.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf doesn’t stop helping Austin’s workers with curbside service. In fact, the company will even deliver your favorite beverages to you if you can’t make it in before work. Also launching this month, The Coffee Bean will offer bicycle delivery to businesses around its North Lamar location. Customers can call in orders from the full menu and a courier will immediately be dispatched on bicycle with the order.
“Our North Lamar location is surrounded by so many significant businesses and offices. We want to reward our hard working customers by giving them the gift of convenience. Our delivery service gives them the ability to get their favorite beverages and snacks whenever they need it, without having to leave the office, which benefits everyone,” said Bryan Wyles, General Manager of the North Lamar location.
For the delivery service only, there is a minimum order of $15, so spread a little joy in the office and get a few co-workers to order with you. Or, ensure your boss has a great day and order a little something for her or him as well.
Ideal for meetings, entertaining clients or even a quick afternoon pick-me-up, the delivery service is available within a one-half mile radius of the north Lamar location.
“We’re so thankful to our customers and to Austin for the great response to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf thus far. It’s our goal to continue to listen to our customers and offer them the best service possible to go with our premium products,” said Duffy.
