"More people visit a Starbucks every week (40 million) than watch the highest rated TV show (20 million), we are a network. "

Howard Schultz on Charlie Rose- January 17th, 2006

I'm sure you could say the same thing about McDonald's or Subway or a few other of the biggest chains, but Starbucks owns nearly all their stores, they don't franchise, creates some rather interesting scenarios in the future I think...
