Starbucks Corp. is running short in some stores on basics including cups and coffee syrups, baristas said, as the chain grinds back to full operations in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Cake pops, cup stoppers and mocha flavoring are among the items that have run out in places at times, some baristas said. The company is pausing production on several lower-sales items to focus on higher-selling ones, one person familiar with those plans said.
A Starbucks spokeswoman said shortages of some items are temporary and vary by store and market. The company has temporarily removed oat milk and beverages made with the dairy substitute from its app until it restocks its inventory, she said.
