Pokémon at Starbucks

January 16, 2017        

Starbucks has expanded its partnership with Pokémon GO to about 12,000 locations in the United States, the companies announced.

Most Starbucks stores in the United States have now been integrated into the game as either a PokéStop or Gym, giving you even more places to play Pokémon GO and to engage with your local community, Starbucks said.

Starbucks also has a special-edition Pokémon GO Frappuccino®.  The Pokémon GO Frappuccino® starts with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino® blended beverage and raspberry syrup blended with freeze-dried whole blackberries and topped with whipped cream.

About Starbucks (from Wikipedia)

Starbucks is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain founded in Seattle, Washington in 1971. As of November 2016 it operates 23,768 locations worldwide, including 13,107 (+170) in the United States, 2,204 (+86) in China, 1,418 (-12) in Canada, 1,160 (+2) in Japan and 872 in South Korea. (Differences reflect growth since Jan 8, 2016).

StarbucksStarbucks is considered the main representative of “second wave coffee”, initially distinguishing itself from other coffee-serving venues in the US by taste, quality, and customer experience, while popularizing darkly roasted coffee. Since the 2000s, third wave coffee makers have targeted quality-minded coffee drinkers with hand-made coffee based on lighter roasts, while Starbucks nowadays uses automated espresso machines for efficiency and safety reasons.

Starbucks locations serve hot and cold drinks, whole-bean coffee, microground instant coffee known as VIA, espresso, caffe latte, full- and loose-leaf teas including Teavana tea products, Evolution Fresh juices, Frappuccino beverages, La Boulange pastries, and snacks including items such as chips and crackers; some offerings (including their annual fall launch of the Pumpkin Spice Latte) are seasonal or specific to the locality of the store. Many stores sell pre-packaged food items, hot and cold sandwiches, and drinkware including mugs and tumblers; select “Starbucks Evenings” locations offer beer, wine, and appetizers. Starbucks-brand coffee, ice cream and bottled cold coffee drinks are also sold at grocery stores.
