Pumpkin Spice Latte Profits

October 6, 2005

According to Starbucks Gossip, our favorite purveyors of overroasted coffee are making money hand over fist with their new “Pumpkin Spice Latte” fall drink.

In the four-week period ended Oct. 31, the company’s comparable-store sales grew by 11% over the same period last year — thanks, in part, to the pumpkin drink.

Now if they’d just get over calling this stuff coffee, everything would be grand 🙂
