To accomplish its mission, Starbucks has principles that guide all of its employees as they go about their daily business:
  • Our Coffee – It has always been, and will always be, about quality.
  • Our Partners – We always treat each other with respect and dignity. And we hold each other to that standard.
  • Our Customers – When we are fully engaged, we connect with, laugh with, and uplift the lives of our customers – even if just for a few moments.
  • Our Stores – It’s about enjoyment at the speed of life – sometimes slow and savored, sometimes faster. Always full of humanity.
  • Our Neighborhood – We can be a force for positive action – bringing together our partners, customers, and the community to contribute every day.
  • Our Shareholders - We are fully accountable to get each of these elements right so that Starbucks – and everyone it touches – can endure and thrive.
