A drive-thru coffee pop-up named The Point has opened at 370 Storke Road in Goleta, formerly Zizzo’s Coffeehouse & Brew Pub and the Storke Road Drive Inn. “State-of-the-Art on-demand machines create the freshest cup possible and allow customers to select from five different roasts and three different sizes,” is how the business is described at pointmarkets.com. “Beans are instantly pressed during each brew process to deliver our customers with the freshest and most flavorful cup of coffee.”
The coffee shop was added so that the owner John Price does not lose the drive-thru permit which would happen if the building is unoccupied for more than a year. The permit is not needed for the gas station but I am told is valuable to have for future use since they are no longer given out in Goleta. The property will become a Fuel Depot. The Point coffee is brought to you by The Point Market which has 6 other area locations including Coast Village Chevron, Downtown Fuel Depot, Mesa Fuel Depot, Las Positas Fuel Depot, Turnpike Shell, and Walnut Shell. The Point Market will open at the Storke Road property once the new Fuel Depot is built.
