Get ready for more Starbucks: the coffee chain is instituting a "go hard and go fast" growth policy, and CEO Howard Schulz says they plan to "win and win big." Go big or go home? Bring your A-game?

Anyway, after marking a 34% increase in income last quarter, Starbucks is planning on 600 new international locations — a quarter of which will be in China — as well as 200 new shops in the US. That's a lot of new potential rendezvous points for shady dealings/places for people to get robbed.
