If lets say a Starbucks “serves” a population of 50,000 people.
1825*50,000 = 91.25 million
That is only 6% of the population of China. So, they could probably do that for 20 years… or open two or three stores a day in China.
This assumption would be correct if the difference in wealth between the richest and poorest regions of China were as close as the USA:
China: China: (1USD = ~6.5¥)
Do they also sell tea at their China locations? I’d imagine it would be more popular than their tea offerings in America.
You’ll see the standard coffee/espresso stuff in pretty much every Starbucks, but they’ll add or options to accommodate local preferences (and, I imagine, their supply chains for items with hard-to-source ingredients). The Starbucks menu in the one near our Beijing office has a menu about half the size of a typical American one. Hong Kong has a more extensive menu since their customers are Western and Chinese.
