Starbucks remakes its future with an eye on beer and wine - USATODAY.com
The concept presented is great, however it is another attempt to muscle in on small mom and pop cofffee establishments. Given that yes starbucks is serving different outlets of the local economy by buying from indipendent local artists, however the concept illustrated in their design of the store is a complete muscle on local merchants...such examplles as Van Goh's ear and Rock'n Joe, which have their own atmosphere, unique food choice, and also offer BYOB service. How are local companies to compete, and where will the future lie in such an industry to alot for a young upstart go getter (especially in New Jersey where a Liquor License comes as often as a visit by the Pope)?
