Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better. It was true when the first Starbucks opened in 1971, and it’s just as true today.
Starbucks baristas and customers have been supporting communities together for a while now. Whether it’s working side by side at community service projects or making contributions to disaster relief efforts, we’re proud of what we’ve done and are looking forward to how much more we can still achieve.
Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated coffee and the rich tradition, but that also brought a feeling of connection. Our mission to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time.
