...Starbucks: Just Who is the Starbucks Customer? By now, you should be familiar with the Starbucks story. After a trip to Italy in the early 1980s, Howard Schultz was inspired to transform Starbucks—then just a handful of coffee shops in Seattle—into a chain of European-style coffeehouses. His vision wasn’t based on selling only gourmet coffees, espressos, and lattes, however. He wanted to provide customers with what he called a “third place”— a place away from home and work. As CEO of Starbucks, Schultz developed what became known as the Starbucks Experience, built around great coffee, personal service, and an inviting ambiance. WHAT GOES UP . . . It wasn’t long before Starbucks became a household word—a powerhouse premium brand in a category that previously consisted of only cheaper commodity products. In 20 years time, Schultz grew the company to almost 17,000 stores in dozens of countries. From 1995 to 2005, Starbucks added U.S. stores at an annual rate of 27 percent, far faster than the 17 percent annual growth of McDonald’s in its heyday. At one point, Starbucks opened over 3,300 locations in a single year—an average of 9 per day. In one stretch of crowded Manhattan, a person could get their caffeine fix at any of five Starbucks outlets in less than a block and a half. In fact, cramming so many stores so close together caused one satirical publication to run this headline: “A New Starbucks Opens in the Restroom of Existing Starbucks.” For many years, new store...
