      • Thanks for correcting me. I should remember Oslo is the capital of Norway instead Sweden. It seemed I forgot it in my geography class ages ago.
        I though Scandinavia people like coffee so much and should have hundreds Starbucks franchise in there too.
        Why Starbucks so slow open in there?

      • Earlier starbucks decided that Norway didnt have a Big enough customer base, but after seeing other local franchises getting a foothold here, especially in the Capitol. They decided about 3-4 years ago to start competing here too. According to their CEO, they estimate to take over the market within two years. But the exciting franchises are all about quality, so they have their work cut out for them, and I am looking forward to see if they can get the prices to go down, which has steadily climbed for the past three years.

      • So basically they screw up their marketing opportunity in Norway and try catch it now.
        I think its good opportunity for local franchises due if Starbucks gain considerable position there will be coffee culture booming in Norway.

        Just like in my country, there only one or two cafes and only rich people care in 80’s, but they grow steady in 90’s . Now, in next corner near my neighborhood there Starbucks franchises, one in local Mall and other inside hospital competing against more dozen other local cafe which create coffee booming here.
        Actually a mess, I don’t know where my favorite coffee anymore due everyone is sale same only in different name now.
