Conclusion
Starbucks have a good range of products targeting both existing/new
customers and existing/new markets. However their development of
completely new products could be an area of improvement. This is
because Starbucks VIA Readybrew (their main product development) is
only available in London coffee shops and therefore the amount of
revenue the product will generate is restricted. Furthermore, although
Starbucks has diversified, the products under this heading are still drinks
based. The company could spread its risk and increase its chance of
long-term success if it diversified into a completely new market.

Conclusion
There is a significant opportunity that Starbucks is failing to
exploit. It has opened a large number of shops in London
however it has only 4 shops out of 733 located in the5%

a stronger position to take advantage of the large population in

itself in Birmingham, therefore Starbucks has the opportunity of
increasing market share if it takes relevant action.
