Spencer Platt/Getty Images(SEATTLE) — Starbucks announced on Thursday that they plan to open 1,300 stores across the globe next year, with about 600 in the Americas.

The Seattle-based coffee giant already has 18,000 stores in 61 countries.

All these new openings are an outgrowth of Starbucks’ success in recent times.  During the fourth-quarter that ended on Sept. 30, revenue was up by 11 percent to establish a three-month record of $3.4 billion.
