About us

Starbucks has always been a place where you can find the world?s best coffees. But in 1971, you would have had to travel all the way to our only store in Seattle?s historic Pike Place Market.1970sThe first Starbucks opens. The name comes from Herman Melville?s Moby Dick, a classic American novel about the 19th century whaling industry. The seafaring name seems appropriate for a store that imports the world?s finest coffees to the cold, thirsty people of Seattle. 1980sHoward Schultz joins Starbucks in 1982. While on a business trip in Italy, he visits Milan?s famous espresso bars. Impressed with their popularity and culture, he sees their potential in Seattle. He?s right ? after trying lattes and mochas, Seattle quickly becomes coffee-crazy. 1990sStarbucks expands beyond Seattle, first to the rest of the United States, then the entire world. After becoming one of the first companies to offer stock options to its part-time employees, Starbucks becomes a publicly traded company under the trading symbol "SBUX". The first Starbucks in the Middle East opens in 1999, in Souk Shark, Kuwait.] 2000s The Starbucks phenomenon continues. As of this writing, Starbucks has more than 16,000 stores in 48 countries. In addition to our excellent coffees and espresso drinks, people now enjoy Tazo® tea and Frappuccino® blended beverages. A Starbucks coffee shop is a special place. But most of all, it?s your place. Some people come here to drink the world?s best coffee. Some come here to be alone with their thoughts or together with a best friend. Some come here to listen to the incredible music. Some come here to take part in a neighborhood event. Some come here for all of those reasons and a thousand more.
