Starbucks, a U.S. company owning the world's largest coffee chain, plans to open 12 new outlets worldwide in the next five years, the company’s statement says.
The plan includes a program to increase the number of coffee houses in China from 2,300 to 5,000 by 2021. The corresponding document was published in November.
A total number of Starbucks’ coffee houses all around the world will increase by 48% to around 37,000. In 2011, there were less than 12,000 of them.
