New Coffee Shop Just Opened

February 9, 2008 6:21pm CST
A new Starbucks coffee shop has just opened in my home town. My town is small and never thought that a Starbucks would open here. It makes sense to open one in big towns and cities but a town with just 10k people.Is Starbucks literally take over ever high street in the world? Starbucks must make billions of dollars each year so why would they wan to open more and more stores, how much money could one company want?

The starbucks must have studied the environmental and economical conditions of your town and find that there is potential of your town to be a good place to have such coffee shop there.

Companies want the maximum income. All entrepeneurs increase the stores to increase sales and increase income. You can see this by the example of many multinational companies, some are around all the world, the country where they born is too small for the business. By this way they conquered the world. It was not only by weapons that we overehelm something, the economics is a real power.

I live in a town of over 100 K in Canada, and we have a number of wonderful coffee shops, including a Starbucks. I prefer The Second Cup, to Starbucks. Here in AZ, where I am staying, we live in a smaller town. In the main part of Sedona there are about twenty K, and 6 K, in the suburb, the Village of Oak Creek, where we live. Sedona has a couple of coffee shops, and VOC has one, two, before the one across the street closed. The one that is open has lousy hours, but good coffee. VOC could really use another coffee shop. Maybe one like Starbucks would be too big, but The Second Cup (if they had them in the USA) would be ideal!

Capitalism is ultimately flawed because it needs to expand markets to survive and that is what Starbucks is doing, it already has all the big towns and cities so now it needs to expand into smaller and smaller towns.
