Though it was created as a simple coffee bean roaster and retailer like Peet’s Coffee and Tea, Starbucks quickly expanded. Since the mid-1980’s, Starbucks has grown so much so that, on average, two new stores open every day. Starbucks as also moved on from selling strictly based products as they now feature teas, pastries, snacks, pre-packaged foods, sandwiches, and even wine and beer in some locations. The company even has a entertainment division where they market books, music, and film.
The Starbucks logo is that of a twin-tailed mermaid or siren. In the early days, the logo actually featured the mermaid’s bare breasts. However, that was later changed to avoid controversy.
