Anheuser-Busch to Invest In Syracuse Area Plant & Partner With Teavana
Anheuser-Busch has announced they will invest $10 million into their Syracuse area plant. The investment is part of a 2017 $500 million spending plan for the company's 12 breweries and distribution facilities across the United States.
According to Syracuse.com, the money will be used to install new packaging machinery and to boost the production of the Teavana brand, an iced tea which is owned by Starbucks. The high-end, loose leaf tea was founded 20 years ago in Atlanta, Georgia and was purchased by Starbucks in 2012.
Last year, Anheuser-Busch and Starbucks announced the partnership, but at the time would not say where the teas would be made until recently. The iced teas will be produced and packaged at the Baldwinsville Anheuser-Busch plant.
The Baldwinsville plant originally opened as a Schlitz Brewery in 1976, but was taken over by Anheuser-Busch a few years later. This is New York's largest brewery.
The Teavana Iced Teas can be found at all Starbucks locations, except the Barnes & Noble Café in New Hartford (this location isn't actually a Starbucks).
Here are some Central New York Starbucks locations where you can purchase the Teavana Iced Teas ...
- Oneida Travel Plaza on the NYS Thruway - Mile Post 244E
- Chittenango Travel Plaza on the NYS Thruway - Mile Post 266W
- Destiny USA as well as other locations throughout the Syracuse area
There's also a Teavana store location in the Destiny, USA mall in Syracuse.
