A new local coffee shop just popped up and it is a great place to go try. Plus it's all drive-thru!

It all started with Java Jet becoming a mobile coffee truck that runs weekly routes in various areas of Lubbock. It generally goes to different offices and businesses throughout the day where they go inside with a tablet and a card reader, take orders and payment, then deliver the orders back inside. If you are a business that wants this, they will still be offering it and you can reach out directly.

The mobile truck has been going on since April of 2022 and has steadily grown from there, stop by stop, by trial and error. A year and a half ago, before getting back into coffee, the owner of Java Jet owned and operated Tough Guys Moving. Now getting into what they are really passionate about, coffee, and wanted to start a business that could involve their kids and show them how starting a business works.

Back in January 2004 Scott, the owner of Java Jet was actually running and opening up a coffee shop at KK's Corner mall and the dream became a reality. He was 25 years old and had to learn his way through building a business. Three years later he had to get out.

Now in 2023, the opportunity came knocking again and he just had to jump on it. Java Jet runs things a little differently than most coffee shops. They offer fast and friendly service with consistency. Customer service is their top priority and from there they do their best to put out a high-quality product.

They offer a happy hour daily from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. where they discount all sodas and iced tea by $1.

Java Jet even has a great lunch, offering Chicken Salad Croissants and Bagel melts. They also have cinnamon rolls and muffins and bagels for breakfast.

For drinks, they have shakes, smoothies, and frappes.


I got to try some of their stuff and loved it. I had their sweet tea and it was Texas size sweet, perfect for me. Then I had their chicken salad sandwich and ate every bite. I brought one of my coworkers a frappe and she said it was "so good, not too chocolaty but just the right amount. It was great."

The owner tells me, "I strongly believe in taking great care of our Java Jet team, and we have a great team, because when you take care of your team then they take care of the customers. I believe this combination of people, product, and process will make us successful."

Jave Jet is located at 3334 66th st., Lubbock, TX in the KK's Corner Mall parking lot. They are open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. You can find out more about them on their Facebook page.
