Starbucks adds beer and wine to its menu
Starbucks, which made its debut in Seattle in 1971, is hoping to pump up its popularity with the addition of beer and wine to its beverage menu.
The company is renovating one of its high-profile stores at 1600 E. Olive Way on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The neighborhood is home to dozens of coffee shops, with stiff competition from such indy spots as B&O Espresso and Espresso Vivace.
The new look will be unveiled in the fall, and includes a LEED-registered interior and exterior; work from local artists; and a setting where customers can get “closer to the art of Starbucks handcrafted beverages.” The so-called enhanced coffee experience will include new premium food items along with beer and wine.
