>I mean, sheesh. I’m surprised there’s no barista behind a counter holding a Frappuccino when I step out of the bathtub.
Starbucks Corp.’s recently announced goal of having 40,000 stores worldwide isn’t just about spreading green awnings through middle America, the Middle East and other areas of the world not yet tempted by easy access to mocha Frappuccinos and pumpkin spice lattes.
The coffee chain’s aggressive growth also hinges on what the company calls “infill” — adding stores in cities where its mermaid logo is already commonplace. In some cases, that means putting a Starbucks within a block of an existing store, if not closer.
They’re not gonna be satisfied until everybody’s strung out on their hopped-up coffee.
