As a non-coffee drinker, I can count on one hand the number of times I've been in a Starbucks.  But even still, I find these things fascinating about their popularity and success:

1.  Starbucks has grown by an average of two stores per day, every day . . . for the past 27 YEARS.
2.  Santa Fe Springs, in Southern California, has the highest concentration of Starbucks stores in the U.S.  There are 560 within a 25-mile radius.
3.  A Starbucks Grande coffee has 330 milligrams of caffeine . . . or over four times more than Red Bull.
4.  Starbucks had a $1.25 billion profit last year, which is the equivalent of two Grande coffees purchased by every single American.
5.  For some iced drinks, Starbucks offers a 31-ounce size called the TRENTA.  It's larger than the capacity of the human stomach.
6.  20% of Starbucks customers go there at least 16 times a month.
