I dont understand this Products are OK but products sold at chains are Bad. I see more dole, coke, ATT, Chicken of the sea, Fritos, and nestle brands in my life than Starbucks. In fact, I welcome a franchise like SB over those common grocery store brands because SB has a bit class to it, a slight vintage feel, and because for a lot of people a starbucks drink is a sort of treat or indulgence. Tuna, your phone bill, a coke, and fritos aren't really a special treat like a frappucino is. I look forward to getting a Starbucks regardless of how many there are in the world. The other brands?.....not so much.
