Iran: Starbucks or Star Box

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iran, Food

Mr.Behi, Iran based blogger writes “I enjoy the taste and atmosphere of The Starbucks Coffee whenever I travel outside of Iran. Being an American company, Starbucks cannot open any branch in Iran due to the current US embargo regulations” [1]. But he adds recently he discovered, in Tehran, a new coffee shop called Box of Stars [2]or StarBox whose design of the logo was meant to refer to Starbucks [3] but without completely imitating Starbucks.
