17:29 EDTSBUXGoogle cancelled location-tracking ad project, Fortune says
Earlier this year, Google (GOOG) cancelled a project that aimed to track Google Maps users and send notifications to their phones after entering the vicinity of certain retailers, allowing potential partners such as Starbucks (SBUX) or Walgreens (WBA) to automatically highlight loyalty programs or discounts when a customer entered the store, reports Fortune, citing people familiar with the project. The project, known as "Google Here," was shut down due to concerns of being overly invasive as well as doubts about whether retailers were interested in the project, said the report. Note that on June 8, Facebook (FB) expanded its test of business "beacons," allowing retail partners to "beam" information to customers via in-store devices. Reference Link

06:18 EDTMCDMcDonald's customization kiosks fail to reach drive-thru customers, QSR reports
McDonald's' new "Create Your Taste" kiosks in all its franchises, allowing for customers to customize their orders, may present a problem since they can only be accessed from inside the restaurants, and McDonald's allegedly receives as much as 70% of its sales from the drive-thru, QSR Magazine reports. The expensive new kiosks are expected to cost franchises between $100,000-$150,000 to install, the report says. "At a cost of $100,000-$150,000 per restaurant to implement, it has a limited upside," Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, told QSR. "I think this is more a stunt to appeal to Wall Street investors instead of being practical for the restaurant operator." Reference Link

06:12 EDTSBUX, MCDStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
