Starbucks buying Atlanta-based Teavana for $620M

Starbucks buying Atlanta-based Teavana for $620M

NEW YORK -- Starbucks wants to make the tea shop as ubiquitous as its namesake cafes.

The Seattle-based company said Wednesday that it will pay $620 million in cash to buy Atlanta-based Teavana Holdings Inc., which sells high-end loose leaf teas in 300 shopping mall locations. The plan is to grow Teavana's footprint beyond the suburban mall with stand-alone shops around the world, while adding tea bars where customers can buy hot and cold drinks.

The deal marks Starbucks latest push to expand beyond its cafes, with the company facing intensifying competition from fast-food chains offering specialty coffees. Last summer Starbucks bought small bakery chain La Boulange for $100 million. Last year it added fresh-juice maker Evolution to its stable for $30 million.
