Peets Coffee & Tea Faces Lawsuit with Regard to Overcharging Customers

A suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court alleged that Peets Coffee & Tea has knowingly overcharged customers who've purchased its French Press coffee. Dan Voelker, the Chicago litigation attorney who filed the suit on Oct. 30, said the suit is 'very similar to the suit filed against Subway, alleging the sandwich maker advertised foot-long sandwiches that were actually about a less than a foot.' In the Peets suit, Voelker said the coffee maker's 'in-store signage has been advertising its French Press coffee as containing 12- and 32-ounce servings, when they are actually at least 25% less than advertised.' The suit alleged that Peets acted to defraud the plaintiff, Robert Garrett, and other consumers, through false and misleading information via point-of-purchase in-store signage and menus intended to trick unsuspecting consumers. The proposed class action suit seeks unspecified damages on behalf of potentially thousands of customers who believed that they purchased more ounces of press pot coffee for their money than they actually received.
