The benefits of usage of Starbucks were the configuration of its network of 22000 stores to prepare with morning coffee and also late-morning lounging of people on weekends against the time that consumers just used to drink coffee.
Starbucks made progress so dream-likely Schultz said there is a belief that store presence drives sales, that looks do count.
The Seven-point strategy for Starbucks is simple:
- Be the employer of choice
- Lead in coffee.
- Grow the store portfolio.
- Create new occasions.
- Grow the brand in consumer packaged goods.
- Build Teavana.
- Extend digital engagement.
Willing To Tackle Many Issues- Business, Social and Political
Shultz’s advice to young entrepreneurs is to follow their dreams but to do it to get experienced. “I say to young entrepreneurs if it’s not personal if you don’t love it, if you’re not willing to sacrifice almost anything for it, then don’t do it.”

Take nothing for granted. You can drive a cycle up or you can yield to the winds of destruction.”
