    Starbucks (SBUX) plans to launch new Evolution Fresh stores and add new juice products to its stores and select grocery stores as part of an overall plan to take the juice market by storm. Though the company has talked about the brand becoming a billion-dollar juggernaut, analysts are a bit more cautious with PepsiCo's Naked brand a formidable contender.

    A new initiative by McDonald's (MCD -0.4%) to sell bagged coffee in stores in Canada could challenge Starbucks (SBUX -1.5%) and Tim Hortons (THI -0.5%) in the nation, according to analysis. Though small in scale, the plan is big in potential after the venture by McDonald's into premium coffee went much better than naysayers dreamed it would. What to watch: Is a supermarket deal in Canada on tap?

    Starbucks (SBUXadds two more outlets in India to make a total of three in its first week of operation in the nation. The pace of the company's expansion in India will be closely watched with CEO Howard Schultz uncharacteristically opaque about the ultimate goal for store count.

    The reaction to the launch of Starbucks (SBUX +2.2%) is closely watched as management tries to "crack the code" in Asia and the greater Pacific Rim region. Despite a huge market in the nation and a partnership with powerhouse Tata, a cautious growth pace is still clearly the plan. Asked in an interview with The Economic Times about new store, CEO Howard Schultz says the company will open up two next week and then "let us see."

    Starbucks (SBUX -3.7%) in India will have its own look and feel with locally-produced coffee selling for 85 rupees ($1.57) and items such as chicken tikka panini aimed at local tastes. CEO Howard Schultz says the company's first store in the nation is a major milestone, but declined to give any details on how many outlets the company plans to open.

    Coffee wars: While Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +1.2%) maintains a healthy market share advantage in the U.S. at the moment and Nestle (NSRGY.PK) is a force to be reckoned with in Europe, the battle for China is wide open. Though the consumption rate in the tea-drinking nation is still low, the prospect for lush growth is too enticing for Starbucks (SBUX +0.1%), Nestle, and new entrant Mondelez International (MDLZ) to ignore. The big question still to be answered is if Chinese consumers will skip drinking filtered coffee to jump right into the single-serve and store-bought varieties.

    Starbucks (SBUX) hears calls from a member of Britain's parliament to investigate how it avoids paying taxes on a hefty portion of its sales in the United Kingdom. If a probe occurs, any resulting damage could be considered somewhat self-afflicted after the company told investors its unit in the U.K. was profitable while telling the taxing authorities the unit wasn't.

    Single Cup drama: Starbucks (SBUX +0.7%) plans to begin selling its Verismo coffee and espresso machines tomorrow as it attempts to cut into Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' (GMCR +0.7%) significant headstart in the market. Although a variety of channel checks show the presence of Verismo as impacting GMCR sales, the real test will be to see if consumers pay the SBUX premium to make a switch. Another wildcard in the mix is Kraft Foods Group (KRFT -0.7%). Though it's derided by coffee purists on quality, it still boasts over $1B in package sales for the Maxwell House brand.
