Thank for globalization, franchised stores have come one right from the other. After the Pizza Company, Swensens, Black Canyon, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), now Starbucks is making its ways to the capital of the Kingdom of Wonder. Its first store will be opened on the ground floor of the Place, a high-end fitness center and eatery establishment. According to the staffers there, the café is opening on the first day of April. Whether the arrival of these franchise chains is good or not is something for heated discussion.
By the way, I just happened to learn that Yejj café nearby Russian Market has been offering coffee using imported Starbucks coffee beans for some years. The price, not surprisingly, is a bit steep. You are expecting to pay 3 to 4 bucks for a mug of coffee.
Update: The above Starbucks is not a franchised store. It is nothing more than a café selling coffee made from Starbucks coffee beans. So don’t be surprised if someday you cannot find the logo there.
