Starbucks Tests Baked Goods In San Francisco Stores, Plans For National Expansion

October 8, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Starbucks says it is expanding its line of food items – a $1.5 billion business for the retail coffee chain – by adding bakery items. Earlier this year, the Seattle-based company bought small San Francisco bakery chain La Boulange for $100 million and the plan is to take the baked goods line national at some point. The company is testing baked goods served warm in nine stores in San Francisco. Items being tested include a whole wheat spinach croissant; a tomato, cheese and herb croissant; a blueberry yogurt muffin and a raspberry passion fruit loaf cake.
