For Here – Committed to our Hometown
Growing up through music – Hot Java Cool Jazz
Starbucks has been a proud supporter of Seattle’s young musicians for more than 20 years with our signature benefit concert at the Paramount Theatre.
We’re all for helping the things that make Seattle special. Which is why we’re all about serving you the best coffee alongside supporting local causes and youth engagement, protecting and preserving our environment, and doing all we can to help create a healthy future for Seattle.
Be it SoDo or Greenlake, Beacon Hill or Ballard – Starbucks is committed to helping neighborhoods thrive wherever we do business. It’s a vow rooted deep in our heritage. And with 100 stores and over 6,000 partners (employees) in the city of Seattle, it’s a testament that we can be a catalyst for positive local change.
The Starbucks Foundation supports our personal engagement in the Seattle community through Partner Match.
To reduce the impact our stores have on the planet, we're designing and building them with locally sourced products, reusing or recycling materials where we can and finding ways to lower the amount of water and energy we consume. Learn more about our commitment to building greener stores and reducing our environmental impact around the globe.
We currently have over 500 LEED® certified stores in 19 countries—more than any other retailer in the world. Our first LEED® certified store in Seattle, located at 1st & Pike, has been designed and built with many environmentally smart features. Take a virtual tour, or better yet – come see us in person.
