The County Times reported that Starbucks is trying to extend its business day by adding beer and wine in selected locations. B'game has two of the first 15 locations that Starbucks has in mind.
By my count we have five Starbucks in town but I could have missed one along the way. Burlingame Plaza and the B'way shop are the ones seeking the limited alcohol licenses. I would guess the small one at the Marriott and the one in Safeway are not ever going to be in the running for more licenses, but not seeking one for the Avenew location is a bit of a surprise. Perhaps the competition is too tough on the Ave?
The shop on Broadway in Millbrae is also on the list.
