McDonald's bagged coffee could be the next big thing in fast food. The idea for McDonald's bagged coffee has already been used in Canada with success and now it is going to come to the United States. According to a report from Wednesday (Oct. 30), the fast food giant plans to start selling variety of packaged ground and whole-bean coffee at supermarkets and other retail outlets starting next year.
For those customers that love drinking the brand, there are also going to be single-cup serving sizes sold as well. This will make them compatible with the Keurig brand of home systems. It looks like the brand will soon inundate the marketplace, which is probably the plan of the restaurant chain anyway. What might be interesting to see is whether sales in the restaurants begin to fall as consumers find new avenues to buy it.
As for how the McDonald's bagged coffee will be sold, in Canada it was about 12 ounces and cost about $7. That's not too bad in comparison to what else is sold on store shelves, but it certainly isn't the most inexpensive of brands either. A full roll-out won't be attempted until test runs are done in certain markets toward the beginning of 2014. So don't get too excited about being able to purchase it just yet.
