Veterans and Military Support
At Starbucks we believe that honoring our veterans and military spouses requires more than saying “Thank you.” It’s about building meaningful relationships, staying connected, and providing opportunities for veterans and their families. These men and women are making our company better.
Recognizing that service members are invaluable to the success of our business, Starbucks committed to hiring 10,000 veterans and military spouses by 2018. To date we have hired more than 6,500, and we are just getting started.
- Career Opportunities
We recognize the considerable leadership skills and work ethic of our veterans and their spouses. It’s exactly what we look for in new employees, and we are honored every time they join our team. We encourage you to explore our open positions and unique benefits including the Starbucks College Achievement Plan.
- Joint Convening of the Muster
In April 2016, Starbucks partnered with the Schultz Family Foundation & JP Morgan & Chase to host the Joint Convening of the Muster and the Veteran Jobs Mission in Washington, D.C. Representatives from top corporations, foundations, veteran service organizations, and uniformed military personnel shared best practices and resources on the retention and advancement of veterans and military spouses, to change the national perception on their value and role in the community/country, and to create opportunities for veterans and their families to connect with their communities through continued service. Learn more about the event on the Starbucks Newsroom.
- Military Community Field Guide
The Starbucks Military Community Field Guide is a resource used by retail leaders to promote civic engagement in the military communities we serve. Designed to build civilian and military connections, the Field Guide also provides essential military knowledge and resources for hiring, honoring, and recognizing Starbucks Partners who are veterans or military spouses. View the Starbucks Military Community Field Guide.
- Veteran & Military Culture
The Starbucks Armed Forces Network is open to all partners and their families who are veterans or supporters. Our mission is to help veterans transition to civilian employment and give all partners the opportunity to strengthen connections and support a culture that embraces our military partners and their families.

- Military Family Stores
Starbucks Military Family Stores are dedicated to the men and women united by their courage to serve our country. They are a place to work, to unwind, to gather, and to build a stronger community. By the end of 2016 we will have 30 of these stores, bonded by the unbreakable strength of military families.
