Starbucks Will Close All La Boulange Locations

Three years after Starbucks Corp.’s $100 millionacquisition of the San Francisco-based La Boulange bakery chain, the coffee company is closing all 23 pastry shops.

Instead, Starbucks will focus on expanding the baked goods under the La Boulange brand in its coffee outlets. La Boulange’s pastries and breakfast sandwiches have helped grow Starbucks’ food sales, according to a statement released by Starbucks Tuesday night.
