Starbucks Groundbreaking Slated for Wednesday

By Staff Reports

(Apple Valley)– Commuters and coffee drinkers at the north end of town will soon have a convenient drive-thru option. A new retail center that will include Apple Valley’s third Starbucks Coffee drive-thru will host a ground-breaking ceremony on Nov. 20 at 10:30 a.m. at 18165 Hwy 18.

Named Nico Plaza, the 4,500-square-foot center will be located at the southwest corner of Kasota Road and Outer Hwy 18, across from St. Mary’s Medical Center. The center will also include at least one additional quick service restaurant, which the developer is actively leasing.

Developer Ash Pathi, Principal of Indra & Co, was raised in Apple Valley and has returned to his hometown to launch this new venture.  The project was named after Pathi’s nephew, Nico Ashok Bava.

As part of the project, South Outer Hwy 18 will be permanently closed between Tuscola Road and Kasota Road. A new road will be paved just south of the project to reduce traffic turns and congestion at Kasota and Outer Hwy 18.
