There’s a new chain of coffeehouses open across Lebanon called “Stories” that has a striking resemblance to Starbucks. From the logo to the colors, the cups, the straws, even the aprons, everything looks the same. The coffee shop has five locations: Tyre, Bliss, Kraytem, Centro Mall & Bir Hassan.

There’s no harm in reproducing the Starbucks concept but it wouldn’t hurt to differentiate yourself a bit. In fact, I don’t think it’s even legal to open such a copycat store but then again we’re in a lawless state.
