Starbucks plans to shut down nearly two dozen La Boulange cafes it bought in 2012 but to continue to sell La Boulange baked goods in its stores nationwide, the world's largest coffee seller said Monday.
SF Planning Commission members Michael Antonini and Ron Miguel while taking into account the opposition's point of view of allowing another bakery into the neighborhood, both said that there was plenty of room for competition. And, they noted that La Boulange offers something a bit different than the nearby competitors.
