Starbuckshas over 30,000 retail stores in 78 countries around the world. In the United States, which hosts about half of those cafes, it's not uncommon for the chain to have multiple locations in a town, or even dozens in a large city.
星巴克在全球78个国家拥有3万多家零售店。在拥有其中一大半的彩票美国,这个连锁品牌在一个城镇拥有多个分店,甚至在大城市拥有几十家分店都很常见。

This seems like a pretty big barrier to entry, but the coffee business continues to attract new rivals. Chains like McDonald's and Burger King have made efforts to step up their coffee games, and even 7-Eleven has a new prototype store that includes a Starbucks-like cafe.
这似乎是注册一个相当大的彩票进入壁垒,但咖啡业务还在继续吸引新的彩票竞争对手。麦当劳和汉堡王等连锁企业都在努力提高咖啡游戏的彩票难度,甚至7-11也有彩金一个新的彩票概念店,其中就带有一家星巴克式的彩票咖啡馆。

Now, another well-known brand has decided that cafes are a big part of its future, and the company isn't deterred by the huge lead Starbucks holds.
现在,另一个知名品牌已经决定,咖啡馆是注册其未来的彩票重要组成部分,而星巴克拥有的彩票巨大领先优势并没有阻止该公司的彩票脚步。

Godiva, the privately held chain known for its mostly mall-based chocolate stores, plans to open 2,000 cafes in the next five years, according to the Associated Press. About a third of those will be in the U.S.; the first just opened in Manhattan.
据美联社报道,私营连锁企业Godiva计划在未来五年内开设2000家咖啡馆。其中约三分之一将在美国;第一家刚刚在曼哈顿开业。

The locations won't just sell chocolate, or the ice-cream confections some offer now. They'll be full, sit-down cafes with an expansive coffee menu, the AP said. They will also offer something called the "croiffle," a cross between a croissant and waffle pressed on a waffle iron, with fillings including chocolate or cheese.
这些店不仅卖巧克力,或是注册一些冰淇淋甜点。据美联社报道,届时将会娱乐是注册座无虚席的彩票堂食咖啡馆,提供丰富的彩票咖啡菜单。他们还提供一种叫做“croiffle”的彩票东西,一种介于牛角包和压在华夫饼铁上的彩票华夫饼之间的彩票东西,馅料包括巧克力或奶酪。

It's easy to see why Godiva wants to go after this model. The company's current stores are somewhat limited when it comes to repeat visits. Even locations that offer ice cream, shakes, and chocolate-dipped items are still somewhat special-event spaces, because their menu is quitedecadent.
很容易理解为什么棋牌Godiva想要追求这种模式。该公司目前门店的彩票问题是注册顾客消费频率受限。即使是注册提供冰淇淋、奶昔和巧克力酱的彩票店,也仍然是注册被看做是注册有特别事件才去的彩票店,因为他们的彩票菜单相当弱。
