The revenue of the coffee and snack shop industry in the United States was forecasted to climb over 31 billion U.S. dollars by 2015, with over 31,000 establishments. Despite the projected increase in units and revenue of the coffee and snack shop industry, the average annual wage of store employees is predicted to only slightly increase, from 13,134 U.S. dollars in 2014 to 13,284 U.S. dollars in 2015.

It is not just coffee making money for these brands: in 2016, approximately 3.49 billion U.S. dollars of Starbucks’ revenue came from food sales. The coffee chain sells a wide variety of food items from baked goods, such as muffins and cakes, to light lunches, such as sandwiches, paninis and salads.
