Howard Schultz explains Starbucks' goals

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz explains how his company aims to be a positive factor in America and its communities
Jessie Taylor's insight:

''What we've tried to do, is immigrate(?) the company's mission and execution in a way that the values of the company would be the way in which we do business. What we've learned over the years is that the financial success that we've enjoyed is in large part because of the way we do business; operating the company through the lense of humanity.'' - Howard Schultz.

Starbucks CEO: If You Don’t Like Marriage Equality, Feel Free To Sell Your Starbucks Stock

Starbucks CEO: If You Don’t Like Marriage Equality, Feel Free To Sell Your Starbucks Stock | Starbucks BUSS4 Research | Scoop.it

By Zack Ford

 

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz continued to defend his company’s support for marriage equality at a shareholders meeting Wednesday, pointing out that “not every decision is an economic decision.” Shareholder Tom Strobhar suggested that the company’s stock dipped a bit when the National Organization for Marriage launched a “Dump Starbucks” boycott last year, but Schultz expressed no concern about the company’s viability moving forward:

STROBHAR: In the first full quarter after this boycott was announced, our sales and our earnings — shall we say politely — were a bit disappointing.

SCHULTZ:If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38 percent you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much [MORE]
