    If I am not mistaken all the Starbucks in Malaysia are owned by Berjaya and are not available for franchise--McD was previously owned by Berjaya as well. Starbucks company owns all their restuarants outright, they are not a traditional franchise and they dont franchise except in countries where they dont yet have an office--very few places like that. As for Coffee Bean, etc etc etc, I wonder why people post here instead of looking at the company's web site and reading first hand and then writing directly to the company for info and specific questions?

    By the way, WiFi Hot Spots around the world are failing--lets say dying a slow death-- because the target market never materialized. The predicted rate of growth in Hot Spots will be sharply curtailed in the future--so the industry says. Ok lets think why? In the USA anyway, Starbucks charged $$ for Hot Spot time and now look--in KL many restaurants offer FREE Hot Spot but how many takers are there? I have never once taken my laptop to a mamak I go to alot and only occaisonally see one guy with his. One. Yet its free for all. In a real sense, be THANKFUL they are not more used than they are. Do you really want a customer occupying a precious seat in your restuarant for three hours, sucking up bandwith time (and your money) and never ordering anything beyond an Ice Lemon Tea? Sure you want that? Sure it seems like a great idea but think again. Plus, the only people I see touting WiFi are those who are selling the equipment. Hmm.
