Kraft to receive $2.7 billion from Starbucks

Starbucks announced plans to offer beer, wine and an evening menu of small plates at thousands of its stores over the next few years. For now, beer, wine and the special menu are available at 26 cafes, with plans to expand to 40 by the end of the year. The expansion is part of a move by Starbucks to attempt to attract more traffic after morning rush hour, and includes the recent addition of new salad and sandwhich options at many stores.
