Starbucks.

My aunt and uncle were out of town when I arrived at their house last weekend, so I had to entertain myself. It had been quite some time since I’d been into that area so I didn’t know what all was around. I decided to find someplace to sit down, vedge, and maybe read a newspaper. I had eaten at the airport, so Starbucks seemed like as good a place as any. I figured that if I followed the Interstate for a few miles that I would have to see one.

Sure enough, there it was. So added to my list of things that I love about this country is the ability to close your eyes, throw a dart at a map, and most likely find a Starbucks within a few miles of wherever the dart lands.

I think that chains in general have an undeservedly bad reputation. I will write more on this later, but it sure is helpful to be able to find a place where you know roughly how good their product is and how much it’s going to cost.

    You’ve hit the nail on the head why chains are successful. People go there and know what kind of quality that can generally expect to purchase. I know when I’m in an unfailiar town, I’m more likely to eat at a chain restraunt unless there’s a recomendation from a local person to try some other place.
