The Starbucks Passport to Africa

The Starbucks Passport to Africa

On a completely new topic, I received an email from a reader in Detroit who wanted me to talk about the new Starbucks in downtown Detroit. In 2008, Starbucks closed their stores in the downtown Detroit market, and so the new Starbucks that opened on April 10, 2014 , is a first in six years. To be honest, what surprised me the most about this article is that it mentions that there is only one company-operated Starbucks in the whole city of Detroit. If I lived in Detroit, I too would be very happy to see a few more stores come my way, licensed or not. So upon reader request, I am sharing the Detroit news. Congratulations on a new store!
