Working in Starbucks?
Let’s grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks and catch up on things. That is traditionally what the coffee giant is known for. But does it serve another purpose? In a Poll Position national telephone survey we asked if you have ever set up office or held a business meeting in Starbucks. The answer was no, with 78% saying they have not done business at Starbucks to 14% who say they have.
Not all were so against the idea, with 38% in the 18-29 year old group saying they have set up shop at Starbucks, opposed to 60% who said they have not.
Democrats were most against the idea with 87% saying they have not set up office or held a business meeting in Starbucks, only 7% said they have. Among Republicans, 77% said no, while 17% said yes, they have done business at Starbucks. Seventy-five percent of Independents said they have not worked out of a Starbucks, 15% said they have.
More women, 80%, than men, 76%, said they have not set up office or held business meetings at Starbucks. However, 16% of men said they have done business at the coffee shop, compared to 12% of women who said they have.
