#2 Starbucks fails in Australia

Starbucks leaves Australia. One of the latest international business failures comes from one of the most successful retail companies in the world. Starbucks, which operates more than 15,000 coffee shops worldwide, in July announced that it will close 61. Remaining will be only 23 stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. What was going wrong? Many people claim that Starbucks failed to understand Australia’s very sophisticated coffee culture. Others take it a step further and accuse Starbucks of arrogance typical of US-based multinational corporations
