Starbucks to introduce new breakfast sandwiches

SEATTLE (AP) -- Starbucks Corp. plans to introduce several new warm breakfast sandwiches next week.

The company said Tuesday that the sandwiches, called Piadini, will feature artisan bread and will be filled with either sausage, egg and cheese or portobello mushroom, spinach and ricotta cheese.

Starbucks also is adding ovens to 800 more stores. The ovens are currently in about 3,000 locations. Michelle Gass, the company's senior vice president of marketing, said that over time, ovens will be in 90 percent of the stores.

The company recently changed the kind of cheese it was using in its warm breakfast sandwiches to neutralize the cooking smell, which it found interfered with the coffee aroma at its restaurants.
