Seattle coffee retailer Starbucks plans another unit in Boise, bringing its total count in the area to nearly 50.

The chain opened its first store in Boise on 17th St. and State State in 1998. In the years since, it added another 45 stores. The latest location, at Fairview Ave. and Steelwood Ave will be store number 47, when you include stores inside grocery stores and on the Boise State campus.

No other chain in the area of any type fields that many units.

The new location will include a drive-thru, according to permits filed with the City of Boise. The 2,196 square foot store matches the overall design of several of the coffee chain’s other local units, with a drive-thru wrapped around the building and a small patio space.

The project will require a conditional use permit from the City of Boise. A hearing date has not yet been set.
