Starbucks is launching a pivotal expansion of their community store initiative to add dozens of coffee shops to poor neighborhoods, the company revealed on Thursday. According to a press statement, the Seattle-based coffee chain plans to open or remodel 85 stores by 2025 in various rural and urban communities across the country. Each location will hire local staff, including construction crews and artists, and will have community event spaces. Starbucks has also partnered with United Way chapters to develop programs like youth training and mentoring.(Snip) John Kelly, executive vice president of Public Affairs, described the new move as a sort of civic duty.

Comments:

They either take EBT, or they want to encourage The Poor to waste what money they otherwise have on luxury coffee products. Neither is desirable, yet they congratulate their progressivism. Glad I don't have any investment in this company, so woke they don't mind going broke.

Poor people paying $2.75 for a cup of coffee when McDonalds sells it for $1 is not helpful. Liberals are just stupid.

This will either being an unmitigated economic disaster or Starbucks will be accused of gentrification and putting "minority owned" stores out of business, in which case it will be an unmitigated economic disaster.

So are they going to profile their customers? I mean, how else are they going to stop the regular $8-coffee-idiots from simply driving to the mearest "poor coffee house" and paying $2.75 instead?

It's easy to be cynical about this, given Starbuck's virtue-signaling track record. But It's a private business, and I would much rather see private individuals and companies take the initiative in their communities rather than having the government do it, and do it badly. We will see what happens. Private and faith-based orgs typically do a lot more for less than the government, primarily because they are willing to set standards for behavior and accountability, whereas govt just hands it out, and if anyone tries to impose any conditions, they get a judge to overrule.

LOL! McD's is $1 for a small coffee, $1.50 for a medium. Their fancy coffee's are about what Starbucks plans for their cheapo versions. I think their senior coffee is even cheaper. I spit on Starbucks, and eat in McD's when in a hurry. I don't drink coffee, but several coffee aficianado friends say McD's coffee is good stuff.

Well bless their little empty space between their ears. That means by 2025 there will be 1.6 Starbucks in every state if they are fair and believe in equal rights for all. Otherwise it proves Starbucks is just hustlers playing the divide and conquer game with the American people. Everybody who partakes of Starbucks, of which I am not one for I am not a fool, should, if there is 1.7 stores in your area say within 50 miles, you should put on some everyday old clothes each day and partake of their $2,25 deal. Then proceed to work or wherever.

Let me say how this will work: The rest of the country will pay $6.00 for their latte to cover the shortfall for the poor customer Starbuck's. Pretty soon Starbucks you will run out of other peoples money. Socialism doesn't work--put Starbuck's on the downward course to bankruptcy--they deserve it.

Several years ago, a big grocery store and a Walgreens went up in a very lower class neighborhood that I drive through. I was happy to see that as low income areas are often grocery store deserts. Both stores are doing well and that is what the neighborhood needed! Not so sure about subsidized fancy coffees.

Project Veritas has apparently snared another pro-Soviet, pro-gulag Bernie Sanders campaign staffer, this one saying in a hidden-camera video released Tuesday that he was ready to “get armed” for the “revolution” and musing about sending Republicans to “reeducation camps.” The footage featured a man identified as “paid” South Carolina field organizer Martin Weissgerber was posted a week after the release of video featuring radical Iowa field organizer Kyle Jurek, part of the undercover journalism outfit’s #Expose2020 series.

Chick-fil-A airport ban costs San

The city of San Antonio has been forced to fork over more than $315,000 in legal fees stemming from its decision to ban Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the San Antonio International Airport, according to a local report. The city council voted in March to block a proposed Chick-fil-A restaurant at the airport over the chicken chain’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” The ban inspired the Texas Legislature to draft the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law in June, and state Attorney General Ken Paxton opened a federal investigation into potential religious discrimination.
