Is Starbucks a licensed store?

This answer is you do not. Starbucks Corporation is owned by its partners and shareholders. All Starbucks cafes are either owned and managed directly by the corporation or in the cases the brand is licensed out to a third party - eg. Safeway, Airports, some hospitals. Starbucks made a decision early on never to franchise to maintain quality control and so as not to erode the brand.

I think not in general. Their dispersion of stores were not always the smartest placement.

They are closing stores based on sales among other things but Starbucks is still very prosperous just suffering like most companies due to the recession.
