Chartwells has opened the nation’s first licensed Caribou Coffee on a college campus in the Student Union at Kansas State University. The 1,800 sq. ft. store features the full range of the chain’s gourmet coffee, espresso-based drinks, premium hot teas, and branded specialty drinks, along with flavor and espresso shots and seasonal blended drinks. It accepts cash, credit/debit cards, Cat Cash (the student union’s declining balance program), and Caribou cards. Some 17,000 individuals pass through the Kansas State Student Union daily. While the outlet is the first licensed Caribou Coffee outlet operating on a college campus in the United States, there is a ‘proudly brew’ Caribou Coffee program in place at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls.
