FLORENCE, ITALY – After landing the Hard Rock Cafe, another giant in food&beverage could arrive soon in Florence. It’s the Starbucks coffee, the largest chain of coffee shops with about 20 thousand stores around the world.
The news is not official but it’s surfing the Web riding social networking sites as Facebook and Twitter. Once before the news had spread, but it had not been confirmed by company: this time, instead, on the Web is circulating a poster with the Starbucks brand, also indicating the opening date, scheduled for October.
Of course, this does not mean that the rumor is true. Moreover, the poster is not related to an official network of the U.S. company. Anyway, we can exclude it’s just a case of coincidence with another town because of the lily leaves (symbol of Florence) in the middle of poster.
