It wasn’t the best kept secret as rumours around town were circulating that a Starbucks was coming to Whitecourt. An email to the company in March looking to confirm a new location in Whitecourt was met with “we do not comment on store operations” response from their media relations staff.

Job postings for a location in Whitecourt have popped up on their corporate website. The postings don’t indicate when the job would start or where the franchise would be located. It’s believed that the old Taco Time location is where Whitecourt’s baristas will set up shop.
