Starbucks, Tukwila, Wash.
This Starbucks drive-through/walk-up location in the Seattle suburb Tukwila is made of four recycled shipping containers. The cafe measures just 448 square feet, about as much space as a typical Starbucks, with room for three baristas to serve up lattes behind the counter.
The coffee conglomerate hopes to use containers for short or long-term cafes on future properties and possibly use them as temporary solutions when stores close for remodeling. Starbucks' coffee and tea is shipped from other countries in these very containers.
