Spartan's New Family Fare Features Seattle's Best Cafe

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A new Seattle's Best Coffee cafe is among the key highlights of a new Family Fare store that Spartan Stores here debuted this week in Allendale, Mich.

Craig Sturken, Spartan's president, chairman and c.e.o. said, the store-within-a-store cafe "is a great fit between our Family Fare banner and Seattle's Best Coffee as each one has been developed to serve the entire family."

The cafe serves a full line of Seattle's Best premium coffee and non-coffee beverages, including lattes, mochas, hand-shaken cold brewed coffees and whole beans, as well as fresh pastries and bakery items and select Seattle's Best Coffee merchandise.

The 49,000-square-foot replacement store provides improved access and services to local residents, and also features energy efficient lighting, heating, and other equipment that has achieved Energy Star certification, Spartan said.

Among the store's other highlights:
- Over 80 organic fresh produce items and an improved floral department featuring more variety with bouquets, plants, and arrangements.
- A full-service deli offering traditional deli fare and in-store kitchen-made entrees and salads, extra large rotisseries chickens, hot breakfast offerings, and over 100 varieties of imported and domestic cheese.
