Now there's a great venture.... selling $4 coffee to the inner city is sure to be a real revenue generator.... Just like the inner city lexus, mercedes, and porsche dealerships....
...I was worried that *$ would start selling or
even combining with SBC...that would be REALLY BAD!!!
Not real fond of their way of doing business,
especially in the training department. Every time (and I am
NOT exaggerating!) I get about a 1/4 inch of coffee
grounds in the bottom of my cup. It says alot about
quality control and the employee's desire to please the
customer...I would hope that Howard was smarter than that!
did you know starbucks recently bought them both
out? look for new pastries, cookies, and sandwiches at
a location near you! also, they are trying new
concept stores in san francisco which offer alcoholic
coffee beverages too! better have your id
The less-charitable view of the Starbucks brand
gets prominent play in a scene in the new Austin
Powers movie. The futuristic setup has the villain Dr.
Evil and his cohorts sitting around in a very
sinister-looking Starbucks Coffee skyscraper, sipping lattes as
they discuss world domination. (Starbucks actually
approved the scene. Said Schultz:: "It's all about being
able to laugh at yourself.")--from cbs marketwatch
Calling something negative "Clintonesque" is
hardly objective. But as for interest rates impact on
SBUX, I can't see how it affect them any more than it
would any other stock/company. SBUX is not that highly
The stall in the stock is due to a run up around an
expected internet announcement that hasn't happened. This
stock moves on news about SBUX.
I would have
thought the clever self-deprecating humour in the new
Austin Powers movie might have had some impact. It shows
SBUX as the headquarters of the Dr. Evil empire as it
tries to take over the world. Quite funny. Nice to see
Howard Schultz has a sense of humor.
Now we wait
to see if he has a sense of business outside of
coffee as he tries to expand the SBUX mystique beyond
that. Like may here, I'm beting the brand can be
exploited further to genreate more profits for me and for
look keep it nonpersonal and these message boards
can accomplish something. Your effort to destroy
opposing views sounds very Clintonesque. Lighten up, your
ignorance shows through. More importantly, please do not
clutter a perfectly good exchange opportunity with stuff
that belongs in "chat rooms for Ignorant people" I am
sure you can find one.
SBUX is very sensitive
to interest rate moves. Any thoughts out there? THe
past moves have put the stock into a stall, trending
