Starbucks will join the array of dining options adjacent to the casino floor at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady. Joining the ranks of Dukes Chophouse, Flipt, Johnny’s To-Go, Mian, and Villa Italia, Starbucks contributes to the diverse selection of high-quality food and beverage choices available to guests.
Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady announced that a new Starbucks is scheduled to open on Friday, November 17, at 10 a.m. The coffeehouse is positioned adjacent to the casino’s Event Center, located between the entrance to the gaming floor and The Landing Hotel. This new establishment represents the nearest Starbucks to downtown Schenectady in the vicinity.
Open from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., this will be a full- service Starbucks, which will offer its complete menu along with freshly brewed coffee and hot teas, blended beverages, pastries, sandwiches, and other grab-and-go snacks. The Starbucks mobile app will be eligible for use at this location so guests can use it to place orders and earn Stars for rewards.
“At Rivers we’re always looking for ways to enhance the property by bringing in new and exciting amenities,” said Rivers Casino & Resort General Manager, Joe Lodise. “Starbucks is a perfect complement to our current food and beverage offerings and, with its location outside of the casino gaming floor, will be accessible to guests of all ages, event-goers, and our Team Members. We’re thrilled to have such an iconic brand that our guests know and love right here at Rivers.”
Operations will be staffed by Rivers Team members and positions are still available including Shift Manager and Barista. Applicants must be at least 18-years-old, and can apply online at this link or by calling (518) 579-8724.
