Mayors Business Council

Starbucks Coffee Company

Our story began in 1971. Back then, we were a roaster and retailer of whole bean and ground coffee, tea and spices with a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Today, we are privileged to connect with millions of customers every day with exceptional products and more than 17,000 retail stores in over 55 countries.

From the neighborhoods where our stores are located to the ones where our coffee is grown – we believe in being involved in the communities we’re a part of. Bringing people together, inspiring change and making a difference in people’s lives – it’s all part of being a good neighbor.
