Starbucks. You’ve heard of Starbucks, right? It’s one of those iconic brands that crosses generations. Everyone, including my grandmother and youngest cousin (she’s three and loves a Starbucks white hot chocolate) knows of and has tried at least one.
They’re massively popular and older than you might think – Starbucks will celebrate its 47th anniversary in 2018. So how have they managed to stay current, keeping their customers and winning new ones for almost 50 years? How do they come up with their offers? Their signature drinks?
Some of it is baristas, years of experience, and market research. The rest? It might just be their customers.
