Starbucks's Pastry Case Is About to Get a MAJOR Upgrade
Starbucks has announced a new partnership with the Italian bakery Princi. This news comes about a year after the coffee chain shuttered all of its La Boulange French bakery locations. Princi prides itself on handmade Italian pastries, baked in an "always-on" beechwood-burning oven. According to a press release, Starbucks will "exclusively offer food from artisan Italian bakery Princi at all new Roastery locations" including the upcoming New York City and Shanghai Roasteries and any Starbucks Reserve-only concept stores that will debut in 2017. Although the menu has not been released yet, Starbucks has mentioned it will include some exclusive pastries, a few Princi bestsellers, and breakfast and dinner options. In addition to these announcements, Starbucks plans to expand standalone Princi cafe locations into international markets starting next year.
