Did you know last year Starbucks made 10.7 billion dollars? Who here has ever been to Starbucks? Well I have, they have delightful hot and cold drinks and scrumptious desserts. But did you know Starbucks also owns Teavana. Today I’m going to talk to you about one of the world’s most well-known coffee shops in the world; Starbucks.
