Starbucks has an unusually human approach to business. We always figured that putting people before products just made good common sense. Our relationships with farmers yield the highest quality coffees. The connections we make in communities create a loyal following. Our ability to accomplish what we set out to do is based primarily on the people we hire - we call each other "partners." We are always focused on our people.
Facts & Figures
The success of the company is due to a variety of factors, one of which is accessibility: it is very common for a Starbucks to be in a location with high-volume traffic such as grocery stores, malls and books stores like Barnes and Nobles. The coffeehouse experience was introduced to the public and became a major trend very quickly with the customer’s ability to hang out with friends, work on a laptop, read a book or enjoy premier coffee in a chill atmosphere while the latest hit songs are being played in the background. Coffee shops of past often had an association with smoky rooms or open mic nights and the Starbucks brand took advantage of exposing a more accessible environment. They are experts at educating the consumer about the process of how a good cup of coffee is created and have made a variety of coffees easy to order, allowing a customer to fully-optimize their experience.
