The Thai coffee chain opened its first store in Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok, in January 2018.
Its first customers were locals, but it soon expanded to other markets around the country.
The company, which is now the largest coffee retailer in the world, has now become a staple for the countrys coffee culture.
It has also helped the country attract tourists and has given it a much needed boost in its economy.
The coffee shop has also brought some peace and calm to the region’s chaotic, war-torn streets.
As the country struggles with the ongoing conflict between the government and a separatist movement known as the Golden Triangle, many of its residents have been desperate for the world’s first, high-quality coffee to help them cope.
According to the United Nations, there are more than 200,000 people living in conflict-torn areas across the region, and the crisis is worsening.
“It’s like the last days of a war, a war in which there’s no end, where we have to wait for the next shot, for the last bullet, and to feel like we’ve lost something,” said Thaisn Thaworn, who has lived in Bangkok for nearly three years.
Thaworn has been struggling with anxiety and depression since he was a teenager.
He was one of the first refugees to arrive in Thailand after the end of the Vietnam War, and he said that during the war, coffee helped him cope with anxiety.
During the conflict, he said, many people in his community who were not native speakers of Thai were unable to speak English and many of them could not afford to pay for their coffee.
Thawothorn said that when he went to Starbucks, the company was a godsend.
After the war ended, the government stopped paying the rent for the coffee shop, and when Thawothorns family finally moved to Bangkok, he and his wife decided to take their coffee elsewhere.
“My life was really going through a lot of problems.
I had to do everything myself, I couldn’t pay the rent, and I couldn, I just couldn’t make money.
But Starbucks, I think, saved my life, because I didn’t want to go to Starbucks because of the war and all that,” Thaworthorn said.
When Starbucks opened in Thailand, it was the country s first Starbucks in the country and one of only three in the Asia Pacific region.
Starbucks has also been credited with helping Thai-Americans to escape the violence and poverty that plagued the country, and many believe that coffee is the key to their escape.
In the years that followed, Starbucks expanded into other countries around the world.
It now operates in 12 countries in the region.
Now, Starbucks has nearly 60,000 outlets across the world with stores in over 70 countries.
At the time of writing, the coffee chain is the second-largest coffee retailer globally.
Starbucks also operates its own retail outlets in more than 20 countries, including in Brazil, Turkey, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Australia, the U.K., France, and Germany.
