One thing I learned this past weekend, people will wait in line for their Starbucks.

The Lacey Township Starbucks is now open. Residents of Lacey and surrounding areas have been waiting for this location to open.

This Starbucks location used to be the location of the Wells Fargo Bank on Lacey Road. It's the perfect location for a self-standing Starbucks. Manahawkin was the closest Starbucks stand-alone for Lacey residents, until now. There is also another Starbucks stand-alone location almost finished in Toms River.

Wow, according to Google, Starbucks is the largest coffeehouse company in the world, with nearly 33,000 retail locations as of the first quarter of 2021.

Starbucks is now hiring in this Lacey Township location. Starbucks is hiring in all of their Ocean County locations, including the new Starbucks opening soon in Toms River. Starbucks in Lacey is opening at the perfect time for some of their favorites: "fall" flavors new this season: Iced Apple Crisp Macchiato, Apple Crisp Macchiato, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, and many more.

I wish I liked coffee, there are so much to choose from and so many different flavors. I'm a tea girl, but it's just not the same as getting a good-smelling coffee. Yes, I love the smell of coffee and I love coffee ice cream.

Many of my friends know exactly what kind of coffee they're getting if it's hot or iced. They know the exact amount of sugar and the amount of cream or milk. The flavored creamers are fantastic, also. I actually put some coffee beans on my stove, it makes the kitchen and living room smell fantastic. Try it, even if you don't love coffee.
