Ha Ha,,, that was a cruel reply, but I like honesty.
I'm in the process of putting a coffee bar inside my store. The closest Starbucks is more than 20 miles away so I think we might do OK for a while.
Starbucks does kinda "take over" when they move into an area. That's not a very moral business practice. I'll be able to keep our prices at about
half of what they charge and make a tidy profit at the same time. That alone shows me that their prices are greatly inflated. As big as they
are, wouldn't they make more money by reducing the prices somewhere into the "affordable" range? We use all natural stuff and no instant powders,
and we're gonna make a good profit at a reduced price,,,, why can't they?
