Starbucks turns to booze and food as it sets out plans to double food sales by 2019
I found food choices in various SB overseas to be much better then in the US.
Indeed, but this depends on where the outlet is located, we had mixed success in the past.
One fun bit of info regarding SB. I was able use my US SB card in London and for having a Gold card was given 50 pence off a cup of coffee
That's good news. Cheers. I hope the coffee was good, any differences from the US version in terms of taste or size?
I think SB coffee tastes exactly the same anywhere in the world I have ever had it. And I always go to SB on my trips. I have this stupid hobby of collecting SB cards, so I make sure I visit every establishment that's on my way.
Looks like in the future there's more available beside coffee, we should say "hello" to more food options and even booze in the future.
More reasons to eat there. Foreign SB cards usually require loading some money on it to obtain. These choices would make it easier
+1. I was in a McDonald's in Poland this year, that had a cappuccino bar inside of it which would put most Starbucks to shame (with lower prices, if nothing else).
I'm familiar with the McCafe concept. Very good quality indeed.
more booze can't hurt.. right?
You're spot on. It's all about their bottom line. <<< and customers waistlines >>>
Given the terrible food choices at Starbucks in the US, that isn't saying much. I do admit that I, too, tend to check out the Starbucks in foreign countries to see what they have on offer. Ugly Curry Puffs in Singapore are my favorite, I think.
As for the booze... the TBIT at LAX has a Starbucks booze bar.
Soon Say hello to drunk students "studying" at Starbucks!
We'll soon see how it interacts with Ritalin!
I can't believe That they are going to do that.
...but eventually they will offer it, from food to alcoholic choices. It's all about their bottom line. Never mind the waistlines of their customers.
The waistlines of their customers will shrink if they replace just one fatassaccino with a glass of wine, even once a week.
Or actual coffee.
It's sad, not even thinking about the safety of the people.
I see this being no different than any other alcohol serving establishment. Their will be rules and requirements to be met. I see it as starting competitive in the later hours of the day. I doubt this will turn into a full blown bar experience. How is this different then buying beer or wine in a corner store?

The SB near my home serves wine by the glass. I would have thought liquor based specialty coffee drinks would be a no-brainer for SB.
