Starbucks is closing Tuesday afternoon for training.
The coffee chain said the in-store training program which will begin at 5:30 p.m. local time, would foster enthusiasm in its 135,000 U.S. employees and improve the quality of drinks made by Starbucks baristas.
In response, Dunkin Donuts will be offering $0.99 coffee to help people see the light.
Dunkin’ Donuts – “to ensure that no coffee lover is denied a delicious espresso-based beverage” – announced that it will offer small lattes, cappuccinos or espresso drinks for a promotional price of 99 cents on Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
