Starbucks announced this week that it will begin offering health insurance coverage for the parents of its China employees who’ve been with the company for a minimum of two years. The new benefit limits coverage to parents less than 75 years old and comes as the company looks to double the number of stores in China.  The insurance provider for the “Starbucks China Parent Care Program” is the state-owned China Taiping Insurance Company. Back in the US, New York-based consulting firm AlixPartners released a survey projecting that customers of fast-casual and quick-service restaurants will be spending less money on restaurant visits than in past years. The survey of 1,000 customers found that although 57% planned to spend the same amount as last year, quick-service diners were planning to cut back by 8% and fast casual diners were looking a cutting back by as much as 13 percent.
