Welkom Starbucks!
Good news for the many MSI visitors like Cindy30 who have asked for more Starbucks in the Netherlands . More stores are on the way! The first new store will open is scheduled for the spring of 2009 to be located in Centraal Station in Amsterdam. The plan is to open more stores in other top railway stations and use this as a platform to further expand across the Netherlands. So, just a few more months until we have a store in the heart of Amsterdam! And only a few months after that until there are stores in other cities. The Centraal Station is undergoing a major renovation and Starbucks is thrilled to be a part of that transformation. We're very excited to a key component of this renovation … more »
Virtual Stores on Starbucks V2V!
Hi there! My name is Nancy and I work on the Starbucks Online and Content team. One of the themes we see most often on My Starbucks Idea is the notion of helping people come together as a community. Ideas as diverse as " Great Conversations ", " Bring it Home " or even " Game Night ", all have the same common thread of a desire to use relevant, local community building. We are actively working on finding ways to implement these ideas in our physical stores. But we also have found a way to help the community bond together in a virtual space as well. It is for that reason that we have just launched our new virtual stores on Starbucks V2V (volunteer-to-volunteer) our … more »
Coffee Ice Cubes
Hi Everyone! I’m Mark from the beverage team here at Starbucks. On the beverage team we strive to continually create innovative beverages; for this reason I love the coffee ice cubes idea! The idea initiated an interesting dialogue between customers and Partners (employees) surrounding our iced coffee, our iced tea, and the countless variations of your favorite Starbucks beverage. Amazing! While I personally love this idea, and it works great at home (I’ve tried it!), at this time we are unable to carry out the coffee ice cubes idea because only a small percentage of our retail stores have freezers. So for now, keep up the great ideas and continue to enjoy coffee ice cubes at home … more »
Recycling Redux
Hi, I’m Sue, from the Global Responsibility team, and a new moderator here on My Starbucks Idea. I’m really excited to join this team and work on bringing some of the great ideas that are posted to life. I wanted to talk a little about where we are on recycling. “ Recycle!!! ” is still a top idea, and we are looking at ways to increase recycling in every aspect of our business. If you are an avid follower of this site, one thing we have done recently is introduce a new cup for our VIVANNO™ blended beverage. Jim Hanna posted a great blog entry about the new cup in July , please go check it out. The cup is made from #5 plastic, or polypropylene, which has less environmental … more »
