Starbucks announced this week it will add alcohol to its evening menu in thousands of stores around the country. The coffee chain has been testing alcohol sales in Chicago, Atlanta and Southern California.
The new menu will be rolled out over several years, Bloomberg News reports. Starbucks began testing alcohol sales in 2010 in a Seattle store. It expanded alcohol sales to other cities in 2012. About 40 stores now sell alcohol. The evening menu in Chicago includes Chardonnay, chicken skewers, truffle macaroni and cheese and chocolate fondue, the article notes.
The new menu will appear in Starbucks in urban areas, near other restaurants and theaters.
