Some people think that Starbucks has built too many stores (I believe Starbucks management shares that sentiment), yet I'm not sure that I've ever been in a Starbucks that was empty of customers. They may have cost themselves some of their profits by building so many stores, but I think another result is the very deep integration of Starbucks coffee into the culture of many communities, to the point where unfamiliarity with Starbucks seems like a foreign concept. Which results with many people like myself and Trusty spending our hard earned cash on expensive coffee. Maybe I should pick up smoking too so that I can really be broke.
My delicious coffee drink of choice: Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino.
