Starbucks serves a variety of beverages including brewed coffee, espresso, teas, and Frappuccinos. Also available are bottled beverages including Odwallas, Ethos water, San Pellegrinos, Izze soda, and Horizon Organic Milk.
Unfortunately, Starbucks is not a “franchise”, and does not offer coffee franchises at this time. All Starbucks stores are owned by the company itself. But there are other options for those looking to get involved in the business. You can call them for more information.
Starbucks has a ‘you-call-it’ culture allowing the customer to specify all modifications to the drink. For example instead of just ordering a Caffe Mocha, customers can order an Iced-decaf-triple-grande-five pump-soy-no whip-Mocha. Any beverage can have various flavored syrups and whipped cream may be added. Cappuccinos, and all other beverages with steamed-milk, can be made with more foam (“dry”) or less foam (“wet”).
Starbucks also offers blended beverages, such as its trademark “Frappuccino Blended Coffee”, a flavored drink of coffee, milk and sugar blended with ice. The name is a portmanteau of “frappé” and “cappuccino,” and was introduced in 1995. Along with Coffee Frappuccino base, Starbucks has a “Crème” base to make popular beverages such as Strawberries and Crème Frappuccino or a Double Chocolate Chip Crème Frappuccino.
Starbucks supplements these offerings with pastries, salads, cold sandwiches, hot panini, juices, and bottled water as well as coffee merchandise and at-home brewing equipment, bagged or scooped coffee beans, and (in some regions) pre-made hot breakfast muffin sandwiches.
