If you worked at Starbucks or retail after your bachelors degree, is that good enough experience to apply for an MBA program?

If the job market was bad after your bachelors degree and you could only get a job at Starbucks or Retail or maybe any other lowly job unrelating to business. And you figure that you can only advance your career with a MBA.

You look at the MBA program requirements and you see that they require 2-5 years of "professional" experience. Is working at Starbucks making coffee for years considered "professional" experience that you can write on your MBA application?
