It seems odd that Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon have more Starbucks than California.
I actually thought New York would be a lot higher on the list.
Commirado, thank you very much.
I think they are all gas stations and Tim Horton's/Dunkin Donuts once you get north of the Tappan Zee.
I have 6 star starbucks within a mile of my office in Burbank. Two stand alone, two in super markets, one on the first floor of an office building, and one at Warner Brothers.
That tops the number of Dunkin Donuts I lived near in Boston.
Don't Dirk Benedict and Katee Sackhoff live in California?
In my little area of TN, I can only think of one Starbucks.
You're right, I was looking at it from a NYC point of view. From what I remember of my years in Buffalo, Coffee Beanery hass the malls on lockdown.
There is a Starbucks in the QFC next to my apartment complex, there is a Starbucks in the Safeway across the street and there is a full Starbucks in the same parking lot of the Safeway.
It's not that we don't have so many Starbuckses . . . eses . . . it's just we have more people, and this is per capita.
I still would expect California to be higher on the list because it's such a giant state, and while there may be fewer Starbucks per-capita in places like San Francisco, you would think that would be off-set by all the towns with ~10,000 people having a Starbucks.
It could also be a number of different reasons that limit the number... more competition in California, tougher business laws, etc.
It's obviously been a while since you've been in Buffalo:
