McDonald’s is set to sell its coffee in ground or whole bean form at supermarkets nationally by the end of 2015, New York Daily News reported.
The move is aimed at upping the profile of the coffee sold at its QSRs.
McDonald’s has paired with Kraft Foods, which is set to manufacture and distribute the bags of McCafe ground and whole bean coffee, as well as single-cup pods that can be used in at-home coffee machines.
Other chains, such as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts, already sell branded packaged coffee at retailers. McDonald’s Corp. and Kraft Foods had said last year they were testing the packaged coffee in select markets.
