Starbucks Truck Sets Up Shop Next To Local Coffee Stand (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Take that, poor little coffee stand!

Starbucks has allegedly set up a promotional coffee truck -- er, bus -- serving free cups of joe next to a tiny New York City coffee vendor, according to a photo that appeared on Reddit on Friday.

The small coffee stand still has at least one customer, the photo shows. But it may want to change locations soon. After all, who can compete with free?

Alisa Martinez, a spokeswoman for Starbucks, told The Huffington Post that the coffee chain did not intend to take business away from any local businesses, adding that the truck has since moved to another location in New York City and will continue to change spots daily.
