Starbucks: 14,000 Stores in 43 Countries and Still Growing


by Luke Dodds

Chances are you''ve enjoyed a cup of coffee from Starbucks. Since the opening of the first Starbucks in 1971 as a vendor of high-quality coffee beans and brewing equipment, the company has expanded to become the most popular coffeehouse chain in the world. Its 14,000 stores in 43 countries sell coffee beverages, beans, teas, brewing equipment, pastries, and more. How did this happen?

Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz took over the company in 1987. He recognized an untapped market in busy individuals in urban areas who could afford fine coffees. In 1995, Schultz hired Anna Niess and Will Chassaing to redesign his booming chain. In addition to laying the groundwork for Starbucks'' well-known symbols and distinctive style, they created a program that led to opening one store per day throughout the 1990s.

One thing that makes Starbucks so popular is the company''s vision of their stores as a "third place" to spend time in addition to work and home. It''s a cozy environment that serves as a meeting place. This attracts a loyal following of customers that come not only to drink coffee, but to relax, work, socialize, and attend cultural events.

Schultz still sees a great deal of potential for his company. Starbucks plans to have 40,000 stores worldwide with 20,000 in the US and Canada. Starbucks is not always welcomed with open arms, of course. The store located inside Beijing''s Forbidden City was finally closed in July 2007 due to protests that it was trampling on Chinese culture. Despite this setback, the company has been a huge success and is now a household name around the world.

    Starbucks the well known coffeehouse chain was established in 1971, since then it has grown to 14,000 stores in 43 countries. In 1987, Howard Schultz took over the chain and directed the growth by recognizing the niche market of middle upper class workers, who could afford and enjoy fine coffee. He brought in Anna Niess and Will Chassaing to help extend his business plans, ultimately led to opening of one store per day in the 1990s. The selling point of Starbucks was its warm and comfortable atmosphere suitable for casual gatherings for people of all ages and occupation. Although its meet with great success in most parts of the world, they were forced to close down their Beijing store located inside the Forbidden City in July 2007. Due to protests that it was trampling on Chinese culture.
