Coffee shops - additional information

The number of specialty coffee shops in the United States has increased over the last 24 years reaching almost 31,500 establishments in 2015. Starbucks was by far the largest coffeehouse in the United States in 2016. In the same year, the famous coffee chain generated revenues of over 21 billion U.S. dollars, dominating the global, as well as the U.S. market. In 2016, Starbucks was one of the most valuable fast food brands worldwide, second only to global giant McDonald’s.

Other leaders in the global coffee shop industry include the British chain Costa Coffee and McDonald's coffee shop brand McCafe. None of these, however, were the most popular among U.S. consumers. A 2015 survey found that Smoothie King was the U.S. consumer’s favorite chain in the coffee and snack shop category, followed by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Peet's Coffee and Tea.
