Starbucks Coffee International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Starbucks Coffee Company today announced plans to restructure its business in Australia …. This decision will result in the closure of 61 locations throughout the country by August 3, 2008.
That’s a pity for the staff that are about to lose their jobs but buggered if I feel sorry for Starbucks. Their coffee is and always has been terrible, I have no idea why anyone would want coffee similar to Starbucks. The same quality as MacDonalds – at least Maccas is cheap.
Last time I went was to the Pacific Fair Starbucks on the Gold Coast – i picked up two flat whites and they looked and tasted like instant coffee – no crema or froth from the milk at all. I asked for another and they said that’s how they make flat whites! What do I do? Well all I could think was to write on one of those customer service cards and post it off, I never got a reply!
Well, Starbucks, maybe if your service and coffee were any good you would still be around, hey.
