Hi folks,
I just found the SEC filing for Starf*cks, which indicates 75% of sales is "beverages". What percentage is each drink however? Anybody seen a leaked document or news report that says? I'm curious as to what percent is the frappucino product.

Click Here (www.sec.gov)

Thanks.

Dunno...but honestly I find your calling it "Starf*cks" to be over the top and inappropriate.

Just sayin'.

"Happy camper",
I agree with Evan, that your reference, while not a rule breaker per se, exceeds the bounds of good taste here.
The link has nothing to do with anything pertaining to relevancy.

If you actually want an answer to your question, simply contact Starbucks corporate, explain you're doing research on beverages, and ask them what % of sales is product in question.
I will give you a day to read this post. meanwhile, I'll discuss this thread with the other moderators.
I wouldn't hold my breath

How about a meaningful contribution to these forums?






EDIT:...my solution NOW would be to modify your title verbiage as pertains to the thread title, and remove the link.
That is, if you're actually seeking an answer.

It looks like this thread will stand but I must agree that this type of "mocking" is in bad taste. Many here do not like or buy products from Starbucks but this is over the line.

I gotta say, the Starbucks bashing is getting incredibly tiring.

Lets just let this thread die.
