Starbucks just celebrated their 100th store opening at Karizma Villa in Kuwait. I don’t know why I always felt they had more than 100 stores but I guess Kuwait is tiny and 100 stores is a huge milestone. I wonder if they’ll be introducing speciality coffee to blend in with the new trend.
Passed by a gas station the other day who just opened up Trolley. Apparently all new Trolley’s in gas stations will have Starbucks now instead of Coffee Bean. I asked why didn’t they open a Coffee Bean and they told me the contract with them ended, so now you’ll be seeing a lot more of Starbucks.
I went on a different day to pick up a sandwich from Starbucks but the gas stations was so packed because everyone was going to Starbucks it wasn’t worth it. More than half if not most the people in the gas station weren’t there to fill up gas, but were there for the coffee.
Randomly found out about an instagram account of a guy in Kuwait that draws over Starbucks logos every time he’s there to a celebrity. My favourites are Darth Vader, Abdulfatah Al Ali and Om Kalthoom. I’ve put some of them below but for the full list visit his instagram account [here].
