    Starbucks Coffee Company, the world's biggest coffee retailing chain, is close to naming a joint venture partner to stage an entry into the Indian market.

    It has met six potential partners, including the Rahejas, the Kishore Biyani-promoted Pantaloon group and Planet Sports. A top-level team from the Seattle-based Starbucks Coffee Company was in India last week, to talk to potential joint venture partners, sources close to the deal said.

    Great. As if I wasn't sick enough of seeing 200 coffee days on every road, now there will be 400 starbucks per square metre too.

    but no doubt's about it , their coffee is worth the amount they charge - you cant go to these places everyday for a cup of cofee once in a while is okay !!!

    i would have been more happy if hard rock cafe would have planned to open up a bar in bombay :)
