So last week, we reported on Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz announcing he’s leaving the company after 40 years amid declining sales numbers along with the planned closing of 150 Starbucks in the US over the next year. This week, it is reported that CFO Scott Maw will also be leaving the company later this year as well. The 50-year-old Maw, who has been with Starbucks in some capacity or another for the past seven years, is said to be staying on in a senior consulting role through March of 2019. Elsewhere, we noted that Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf announced it will be returning to New York City after a two year hiatus with former Dunkin’ franchisee Pinchas Shapiro of Hudson River Coffee & Tea LLC planning to oversee 100 new franchises in the Big Apple. The California-based brand only has 311 US units currently. Lastly, we noted that Peet’s Coffee, another California-based coffeehouse chain, has launched a line of shelf-stable, ready-to-drink iced espresso beverages.
