The cool thing about Starbucks
Posted by Andy Steves in on February 21, 2011.
One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how expensive the neighborhood you find yourself in is, you can depend on generally the same prices under the green orb.
On top of that, you can usually depend on some solid, free internet. Somebody needs to make a movie about the entrepreneurs who run their business out of Starbucks. Just like George Cluny could say what terminals he lives in in “Up in the Air”, I could—along with thousands of other small-timers—say which internet cafes like Starbucks we spend hours pounding away at our businesses. Just like “Castaway” with Tom Hanks was a solid extended commercial for FedEx, the same could be true for this young entrepreneur’s story in Starbucks.

They helped us navigate the city and showed us its innumerable historic sites (Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, etc.) with the option of going to Easter Mass at the Vatican if you pick the right weekend. All I have to say was that being in the third row at...Joshua Dyer, Bridgewater State University ~ University of Limerick, Spring 2016
