Starbucks aims to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time. We are committed to doing business in ways that are good to the earth and to each other. From the way we buy our coffee, to minimising our environmental footprint, to being involved in local communities.
Starbucks is focused on delivering the best experience to every customer at each of our locations around the world. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many communities, and we are committed to providing the Starbucks Experience while respecting the local customs and tastes of each country we operate in. Starbucks stores have been operating in the Middle East since 1999 through a licensing agreement with trading partner and licensee M.H. Alshaya Co., a private Kuwait family business. Today, with more than 16,000 retail locations in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim, Starbucks is the premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world.
