Rumor has it that Starbucks is going to be slowing down in 2008.  I really like Starbucks, but I have always been amazed at their appetite for expansion. The company plans to focus on in store operations, but will continue to expand at a slower rate. The coffee giant says that it will focus on store operations and customer satisfaction.

I think Starbucks will be around a while because people are still crazy about Coffee, but certain elements in the economy are preventing people from spending $5 a day on frappuccinos.
