Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz


Talk about #racetogether? Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schultz announced this week that the coffee chain plans on opening a store in Ferguson, Missouri.

Schultz said the new store is a  “way to create employment” in the St. Louis suburb, according to Fortune.

Currently there is no timeline as to when the store will open, but with low unemployment rates, this could be a good thing for Ferguson. Don’t forget Starbucks also provides its employees with its College Achievement Plan.

Only time will tell if this will end up being something good for Ferguson, or just another way for Starbucks to continue its coffee domination.
