Starbucks at the airport

I noticed something interesting waiting for a flight out of San Diego the other day. There was the usual food kiosk selling sandwiches, pizza, chips, drinks, etc. It had the usual inflated airport prices ($2.25 for a $.75 bag of chips, etc).

Around the corner was a Starbucks. The prices were about the same as the prices at the local Starbucks. No noticable markup for the airport.

Is Starbucks being nice or the other food seller grabbing monopoly profits?
