Why We Love Seattle
Just three miles south of our first Starbucks® store in Pike Place Market, our Starbucks Support Center is a vibrant office hub where our corporate partners (employees) work. Located in Seattle’s SoDo district, our offices have easy commuting access from neighborhoods around Seattle and neighboring suburbs.
We moved into our Seattle Support Center in 1994, and since then, Seattle has flourished with us. As one of the fastest growing American cities, Seattle is surrounded by rich scenery ranging from forests and mountains to lakes and beaches, providing ample opportunity for outdoor exploration throughout the year.
In addition to its natural beauty, Seattle is a diverse and socially conscious community with ample opportunities for involvement. Personal health and wellness is nurtured through year-round farmer’s markets, organic and locally sourced food. New, diverse dining options frequently emerge throughout our growing neighborhoods, and many of our unique Starbucks retail formats can be found here, including the Starbucks Reserve® Roastery.
As one of America’s tech-hubs, Seattle is on the forefront of personal tech innovation, making our urban city lively and ever changing. With a vibrant arts and live music scene which dates back to the early 1900s, there is no shortage of cultural events to experience including the Seattle Art Museum with its unique Olympic Sculpture Park, the Seattle Asian Art Museum and Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot music festival. Our Starbucks Support Center is a few blocks away from our sports arenas, making it easy to root for our local teams: NFL Seattle Seahawks, MLB Seattle Mariners, MLS Seattle Sounders FC and WNBA Seattle Storm.
Vancouver, British Columbia and Portland, Oregon are both a short train or car ride away, while our Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is a major west-coast hub, making flights to Asia, Europe and anywhere in the world an easy one or two flight trip.
