Back in May, Starbucks announced a partnership with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters to produce the famous K-Cups coffee pods. Earlier today, Starbucks announced that the Starbucks K-Cups will hit grocery stores and specialty retailers in the U.S. starting in November 2011. They will also be sold in regular Starbucks stores in 2012.
According to the president of Starbucks Global Consumer Products Group, the plan is to “build Starbucks systemwide sales of K-Cup into a $1 billion business over time.”
I don’t know about you, but we are excited for this.
