About Starbucks

Starbucks is an international chain of coffeehouses headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company markets hot and cold beverages, teas, packaged coffee, and assorted food items. Starbucks products are ordered and made for carryout, but the stores are arranged like a cafe with tables and seating for sit-down customers.

Products & Services

The Starbucks menu is primarily made up of coffee and coffee-related beverages. However, the company has expanded to include different varieties of tea and specialty drinks as well as food. The to-go style ordering system combined with the cafe-style seating arrangements also cater to customers’ different needs. Starbucks offers carryout service for rushed customers, while providing tables and internet access for customers with leisure time.


Starbucks was founded by Jerry Baldwin, Zev Siegl, and Gordon Bowker, who met while studying at the University of San Francisco. The three started the first Starbucks in 1971, selling only coffee beans and related equipment. In 1987, the founders sold the chain to a former employee, who expanded Starbucks nationwide. More recently, the company opened new locations in Russia and Vietnam.

Job Opportunities

The publicly traded company currently operates in over 60 countries. Starbucks also owns a variety of subsidiaries, including Ethos Water and Tazo. Careers at Starbucks are available in its store locations as well as its corporate office. Departments like finance, Information Technology (IT), and global development also offer a variety of opportunities for employment.
