- Which consumer trends has Starbucks failed to capitalize on?

- What can I learn from La Boulanges failure to provide a sustainable business model within Starbucks wider business?

Key Highlights
The decision to close La Boulange may make sense, as may the leveraging of the brand via Starbucks normal store chain. However, buying in intellectual property like recipes and a brand name may not actually be a magic bullet to gain brand credibility and more favor among consumers. In fact, it may alienate them further.

Consumers increasingly want and support artisanal, locally produced items. Major businesses have latched onto this interest, inspiring ongoing acquisitions to buy into the zeitgeist. However, this raises consumer cynicism about the motivations of corporate actors, and the likely impact upon the acquired businesses.
