"I consider myself the world's biggest Starbucks fan," he said.

"Starbucks is always my first choice when I want to buy a coffee, cold drink or food, even if it’s not the closest place I will go out of my way to find a Starbucks - I will never go anywhere else."

Pead says he travels a lot for work, and visiting Starbucks outlets around the world is a perk of the job. 

"I like the fact that when I’m travelling, that I can always find a Starbucks - they open early and close late, so I decided to have some fun and try to visit as many branches as possible."
