Re: [PanoToolsNG] Re: starbucks in prague
- I live in Mammoth Lakes, CA, USA. Population around 6000.
We have three Starbucks and they are building a Cuppy's --
another drive through coffee shop.
We have two local coffee shops that roast.
Along with 5 - 10 combo shops -- coffee and something else.
That works out to be around one coffe shop for every 500
residents. I don't know how the local shops make it.
