Starbucks plans to open stores in Paris next year. Why go to Paris? I’ve never been there, but I imagine that there are a lot of pastry/bakery cafe’s there already. What’s going to happen to all the Mom and Pop places?
I know, too often is Starbucks looked down upon as a capitalistic American corporation. But when I was teaching in Hong Kong, I wished for one around. I also wished to see any kind of Mexican restaurant. A Taco Bell would have sufficed.
