Hey, Starbucks: What's wrong with Detroit

May 16, 2006


An article about Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz's speech at the Detroit Economic Club yesterday, mentions that Detroit has only five of the popular coffee shops in the city. One of them is located on the Wayne State campus. No one has to tell 29-year-old Raquel Gonzales about the scarcity of her favorite hot coffee supplier. A resident of Detroit 's Corktown neighborhood, she drives out of her way to get her grande _mocha at the WSU Starbucks.
