Evolution Fresh, now run by Starbucks

Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) celebrated the grand opening of a new
Evolution Fresh juicery in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., on Wednesday. The plant is expected to employ 190 workers, according to a news release.

The new facility will quadruple the brand's production of cold-pressed, never-heated
juice, featuring the most advanced technology, including High Pressure
Processing (HPP) machines, according to the release.

Since Starbucks' acquisition of the brand in
November 2011, Evolution Fresh has exceeded its aggressive growth plans
to be in more than 8,000 Starbucks and grocery retailers by the end of
calendar year 2013.

The facility will help the company
grow its market share in the $1.6 billion super-premium juice industry.
