First, most, if not all, Starbucks do not allow photography.  This has come
up here before.

Second, many, if not most of us, do not live near a Starbucks.  There is a
single Starbucks within sixty miles (95km) of my house and the nearest one
after that is almost 200 miles (325km) away.  Why drive so far to be told
that you are not allowed to take a picture?
