I used to wonder why so many people have such a connection with Starbucks Coffee. The answer came to me one day while I was having a cup of coffee at a kopitiam in Setapak. Although it obviously was nothing like Starbucks, the experience was just as nice if not even more special because it’s the only one of its kind.
There are virtually countless Starbucks outlets around the globe to serve the multitudes who love the concoctions sold there. However if you have been reading, you’ll also know that Starbucks has frappéd itself by multiplying and duplicating at warp speed.
To date, Starbucks has closed down 600 stores, laid off 13,000 people and has reported that it will put on hold 40,000 new stores. Would you like whipped cream with that?
