Starbucks, the US coffee major which has over 700 cafés in the UK, is  planning to sell wine and beer in the evenings to customers, reported Telegraph UK.

The coffee chain will offer a wide range of meals and snacks along with the selection of beer and wine.

The cafe chain has also included flatbreads, hummus and pulled pork chill on the menu.

Starbucks is planning to open its ‘Starbucks evenings’ cafe’ at Stanstead airport, with the evening menu available from 4pm.

The firm says it will then look at rolling out the programme to other outlets, though they have not yet revealed the locations.

‘Starbucks Evenings’ were first launched in the US, and there are 30 cafes which now offer them, in locations including Chicago, Seattle and Atlanta.

“We are delighted to launch the first Evenings Programme in the UK. Providing a welcoming coffeehouse environment has always been our focus and now we can offer something new for the evening too,” said Ian Cranna, a spokesperson for Starbucks.

Starbucks announced a long-term plan to almost double its market value to $100 billion last year.
