Starbucks Coffee Company (NASDAQ:SBUX) today announced that, beginning

Starbucks retail stores nationwide. Starbucks is the exclusive, licensed

“Following the successful launch of Starbucks® K-Cup® packs into food, drug,
mass, and club channels last November, we are looking forward to offering
Starbucks® K-Cup® packs to the millions of customers who visit our stores
every week,” said Cliff Burrows, Starbucks president, U.S. and the Americas.

cup, or Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew to make on the go.“
