Wilshire Observations: Starbucks Slow to Conquer

On our almost-16 mile trek down Wilshire, I was struck by how few Starbucks actually exist on the boulevard. We counted (and Christina counted) just five.

For Starbucks -- famous for opening locations on virtually every street corner -- that's only one for every 3.5 miles.

Meanwhile, here's another bunch of factoids from Wilshire expert Kevin Roderick:

that's 206 cross streets, 412 get the idea. used to be 100 gas stations you could stop in, now fewer than five i think.

Indeed, I didn't see many gas stations -- definitely fewer than five. Not a lot of eating options after you leave the Miracle Mile and before Brentwood, either. (As we found out!)
