Coffee, of course, has a huge profit margin. Starbucks isn’t where it is selling CDs or coffee mugs. And Gloomy Gus has a strong clientele amidst a lot of competition in town. He provides free dog biscuits, for example, which is quite nice. (Duncan’ provides free munchkins.) His coffee is not exceptional, it’s average.
