The newest Starbucks in Albuquerque, N.M. is the first stand-alone Starbucks licensed to a Native American-owned company in the country, according to a media report.
The new Starbucks is owned and operated by New Mexico’s 19 pueblos, according to an Albuquerque Journal report.
It’s located near Interstate 40, along 12th Street.
It’s unique and doesn’t look like other Starbucks, the report says. It featured two kiva fireplaces, a wall of historic pueblo photos and traditional artwork, including pottery designed in shape of a Starbucks travel mug.
