Starbucks raises prices on coffee, sandwiches at some locations

- Starbucks raised prices on some of its drinks and foods this week, affecting about ten percent of the menu items.

The price increase includes some sizes of brewed coffee, select espresso drinks, bacon Gouda breakfast sandwiches and cookies, according to Business Insider. Price hikes ranged from 10 to 30 cents.

The price increase debuted on the same day as the Pumpkin Spice Latte launch.

The company did not say how many of the coffee chain's approximately 8,000 U.S. locations had increased prices.

"We expect 10% of the US customer’s average customer ticket to increase by about 0.5%  as a result of these beverage adjustments," Starbucks spokesperson Sanja Gould told Business Insider.
