Starbucks...beer & wine at cafes in California! European trends favored!
The Seattle-based java giant - Starbucks - announced yesterday afternoon that the chain is expected to sell beer and wine at over twenty-five new locations by the end of this year.
Locals who frequent coffee-houses in Chicago, Atlanta, and Southern California may soon be sipping on a refreshing glass of bubbly or tossing back an ale if the plans go forward as scheduled.
Starbucks first began serving up the alcoholic beverages in October at a Seattle cafe - where the trend not only flourished - but accounted for brisk sales and a boost in profits.
We're catching up to the Europeans - who, 'til now - have savored the image of the sophisticated worldly lot to be the envy of.
Can McDonalds be far behind with a McAle?
