SEATTLE – Listen up foodservice segment: Starbucks has dipped a coffee-tinted toe into the barbecue game.

The company announced a new line-up of “unique lunch and dinner options.” Among those options is BBQ Beef Brisket on Sourdough — made for those customers who requested “a heartier sandwich,” the company said in a news release announcing its new offerings.

“The recipe was inspired by our product development team's West Coast roots,” said Ellie Halevy, Starbucks vice president, Food. “This sandwich was crafted with high-quality ingredients including iconic San Francisco-style sourdough, roasted onions braised in Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock Beer and Sonoma Jack cheese, both from Northern California.”

Starbucks Prosciutto and Mozzarella Bistro Box
Bistro Boxes were made to satisfy demand for meals on-the-go.

In addition to the brisket, Starbucks is testing a Prosciutto and Mozzarella Pinwheel Bistro Box in Orlando, Fla., and San Diego, Calif. The new Bistro Box features prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella, lemon artichoke dip, olive oil and sea salt crackers, bell peppers, grapes and a chocolate truffle bar.

“Bistro boxes are the epitome of portable, flexible, grab and go food,” Melodie Beal, Starbucks product development manager, Food Innovation, said in a statement.
