"Going to the other side of the street can be a barrier," said Launi Skinner, senior vice president in charge of Starbucks' store development.

when and if starbucks' ambitions exceed reality, it will be interesting to see what happens to all those old stores. . .I wonder, for example, how many will keep any or all of the equipment, layout, interior design, cushy furniture, etc.

Taco Bell was once a huge chain in San Diego but now it has very modest numbers, mostly because of Taco Shop competition. Some of the best taco shops, BBQ shacks, and independent burger joints in SD are located in former Taco Bells. In fact, one old Taco Bell down the street from me was just converted to a Drive-Thru Starbucks.

Ashamed to say that I love it. . .it's right by the freeway enterance I use for work. . .

I frequently crave a fancy coffee, but if I have to go too out of my way for I usually just say "fuck it," so I can see the logic. But yeah, how quintesentially American is that to not want to walk aaaaalllll the way across the street for something?
