Very surprising, you'd expect the executives of starbucks to want to stay there, considering how fast its growing, i was recently speaking to an executive at www.gio-espresso.co.uk and www.gio-kitchen.co.uk and he was telling me how starbucks are set to shake up the coffee machine market with there new machine there bringing out, so its surprising considering how much there growing to want to move.
