Starbucks in India?

US Coffee retail giant Starbucks announced its intention to enter the Indian market in 2007 during its Q3 earnings conference. Starbuck’s CEO Howard Schultz said that the company was looking at potential joint venture partners with the right “business and retail experience”. The company said that it initially plans to start retail stores in Mumbai and Delhi. It will be interesting to see if Starbucks will be able to make any headway in the Indian market like it has done in the United States since traditionally India has been a tea drinking nation. But the company intends to cash in on the emerging coffee culture especially among the younger generation.
