Why do people go to Starbucks/Dunkin instead of a local coffeeshop

Its sterile, worse, and more expensive.

There's 3 local coffee shops and a Starbucks in close walking distance from my house, I genuinely don't understand why people go to the Starbucks

    Starbucks has the same thing going for it that every major franchise has: consistency. I can walk into a Starbucks at home or one in Indianapolis (where I was for the eclipse) and know that I'm going to get the same coffee drink. It may not be GREAT and it may not allow me to virtue-signal, but it's good and it's consistent over vast distances. That's why people go to Starbucks.

    local coffee shops would get sued if they tried to sell 3000 calorie milk drinks loaded with soybean oil to fat slobs, but Starbucks have the lawyers to get away with it

      We don't have Dunkin shops out here, but we have Dunkin-branded whole bean coffee in the supermarket. It's generally reasonably priced, often on sale, and its quality and consistency is really good. It's our everyday coffee of choice for brewing at home.

        "consistency" is just industry-speak for "loaded with preservatives and artificial flavors." either learn to manage perishable goods and look at the roast date or do what everyone else does and learn to love bitter, oxidized dark roasts

    I get dunkin because if I wake up at 4:30 AM and want to go for a bike ride at 5:30 and I don't have anything sugary to eat lying around, dunkin is open. Muh local coffeeshop opens at 8:30 and I aim to be back home by then. So maybe you could open up at a reasonable hour if you want my business, hmmmmm? You're supposedly a coffee shop aren't you? When do people want coffee? Put on your thinking cap.

          yeah that can be peak freak hours, but i just went through the drive thru and i seemed to show up before they got their first rush of business
          Dunkin and McDs are the only two popular chains that have decent coffee imo

      I have one 3rd wave coffee shop that opens at 6am. I used to do overnight shifts on Fridays, so I'd swing by for a cortado and a pastry. I'd get a table and enjoy the quiet time long before any laptop jerks would show up. Just a few office people, bicyclists, and other old dudes.

    It's consistent with what they sell and I won't be associated with the types who go to local shops.

    That cozy familiarity of What You Know, I suppose. And in a lot of places there's no other choice.

    Living where I do, I have a number of local coffee shops within walking distance (pic is my favorite). I wouldn't dream of setting foot in a chain. I know that not everyone has this sort of privilege, though.

          Not him, I used to drink soda, but started drinking coffee and sparkling water and stopped drinking soda and now have zero desire to drink soda.

          Its replacing something unhealthy with something healthy

    local coffee shop is usually even more expensive and time consuming, coffee is often bad. whereas dunkin and starbucks are relatively consistent

      I find Italian food and coffee overrated, but the sandwiches at cafes there rule. Quality fast food
