Coffee giant Starbucks has recently announced plans to expand its drive-through business in the UK. Not only will this create 5,000 jobs, it will also save lazy, coffee-hungry (and therefore tired) people from getting out of their cars.
The 30 year old company has nearly 9,000 stores and over 8,000 licensed outlets in more than 50 countries. It is now aiming to expand its drive-through branches in the UK from 9 to 200.
The announcement, which comes two weeks after official figures revealed youth unemployment had exceeded one million, was welcomed by Prime Minister David Cameron, who said it was a “great boost to the British economy”. This is particularly pivotal as the majority of Starbucks Barista’s are under 24 years of age.
Now all we need is a Starbucks delivery service for those who are too lazy to even get into their cars.
