Number of Starbucks locations worldwide 2003-2019

How many Starbucks are there in the world?

World-famous coffeehouse chain, Starbucks, accounted for 31,256 stores globally in 2019 – a figure that, after year-over-year growth (excluding a drop in 2009 due to the global financial crisis), has nearly doubled in the last decade.

A growing, global brand

Starbucks is one of the most notable QSR (quick service restaurant) empires. With over 31,000 stores spread across nearly 80 countries around the globe it has expanded speedily into a coffee powerhouse and continues to spread its reach to different locations. While it has seen major international growth, the Seattle-based company accounted for the majority of its stores in its home country of the United States, with around half of its stores being based there. Perhaps unsurprisingly, China, a rapidly growing consumer nation, accounted for the second largest number of Starbucks stores.

Has Starbucks taken the lead in Europe?

While Starbucks may be the American favorite, in Europe another chain takes the lead. Costa Coffee ranked as the leading European coffee shop chain in terms of units in 2018. The British chain had almost three thousand units open across Europe.
