2013 Net Income[edit]

The number is listed as "8" which doesn't follow the trend. Pretty sure this is incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daveshira (talkcontribs) 00:55, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Incorrect "Original Starbucks" image.[edit]

The "Original Starbucks" on 1912 Pike Place is not the one depicted in the photograph. That is the larger store on 1st and Pike. This is not the store marketed as the "Original Starbucks"; that store can be found in the market itself. This is a common mistake among tourists and photographers.

Present Tense Grammar[edit]

There's some really old content on the page, especially in the Corporate governance and Products sections, that uses present or future tense grammar which should be updated to past tense:

  • In June 2009, the company announced that it would be overhauling its menu and selling salads and baked goods without high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients.[79] This move was expected to attract health- and cost-conscious consumers and will not affect prices.
  • In January 2008, Schultz resumed his roles as President and CEO after an eight-year hiatus, replacing Jim Donald, who took the posts in 2005 but was asked to step down after sales slowed in 2007. Schultz aims to restore what he calls the "distinctive Starbucks experience" in the face of rapid expansion. Analysts believe that Schultz must determine how to contend with higher materials prices and enhanced competition from lower-priced fast food chains, including McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts.
  • As of November 2012, there is no intention of marketing Starbucks' products in Teavana stores
  • in January 2012, Starbucks announced a 50:50 joint venture with Tata Global Beverages called Tata Starbucks. Tata Starbucks will own and operate Starbucks outlets in India as Starbucks Coffee "A Tata Alliance"
  • In 2009…CEO Howard Schultz says the unbranded stores are a "laboratory for Starbucks".

There's also some outdated content that should be updated:

  • As of April 2012, it is available at seven locations
  • Starbucks is planning to open[when?] its fourth African location, after South Africa, Egypt, and Morocco, in Algeria. The when tag was added in 2012, so this plan either happened or didn't
