Starbucks coffee: The sprawling coffee empire
The coffee shop you all know (because it's everywhere, obviously) opened its door exactly 50 years ago, in a small market in Seattle. Who would have thought that the cute coffee shop would transform into an empire? The company now operates 33,000 stores in 80 countries. Starbucks has a market capitalization of $128 billion, and is the second quick -serving restaurant chain, trailing only the giant McDonalds.
