Starbucks says aims to triple China revenue by 2022

"Starbucks will look to leverage the recently announced global coffee alliance with Nestle to provide even more at-home options to the Chinese consumer in the future", the company said. By 2022, it intends to set up on the mainland 6,000 stores, while the previous target was to set up 5,000 stores by 2021.

The US coffee chain has over 600 stores in Shanghai, more than any city on earth, and it recently built its biggest ever coffee shop in the city.

The push in the Chinese market comes as its stores in the USA face fierce competition from up-and-coming regional coffee houses and steep discounting from fast-food rivals.
