Another Starbucks soon may pop up around the corner, with the world's biggest coffee company planning to add at least 1,500 cafes in the U.S. over the next five years.
Starbucks, the coffee company known for its dark-roasted beans, unveiled its lighter blend "Starbucks Blonde Roast" on Tuesday as it tries to reach a wider base of consumers.
