Starbucks in China
Serving high quality coffee to satisfy an rapidly growing interest, the goal is to share the Starbucks Experience with Chinese consumers, one cup, one person and one neighborhood at a time.
In January 1999, Starbucks entered the mainland China market by opening their 1st store in the China World Trade Building, Beijing.
Now, Starbucks has already opened 2,800 stores in 130 cities with over 40,000 partners. This enables to achieve their promise everyday through stores.
Since Starbucks entered the China market, they intend to serve the community, and enforce social responsibility programs, both locally and nationwide.
The “third place” concept, with the legendary Starbucks service, has resonated in China.
As the Chinese people’s living standard rises and as we seek new leisure places and habits, Starbucks is a destination for human connection, meetings, dating, gathering with friends or be oneself. It fits nicely with Chinese society’s increasing yearning for a place that ‘makes them feel good’ in a hectic world. Moreover, Starbucks is fully respectful of the long history of Chinese tradition and culture and integrate the Starbucks experience with local customs, in store design, local food and drink offering etc., to uplift the unique Starbucks experience which it is committed to offer.
