Starbucks Military Commitment

group of Starbucks partners from a Military Family Store with CEO Kevin Johnson

Thank you for making us a better company.

Veterans and military spouses play a vital role in strengthening our communities—and our company—through leadership, service and civic engagement. Veterans are more likely to vote, volunteer, give to charity and contact public officials compared to their nonmilitary counterparts.

That’s why, since 2013, we’ve hired over 22,000 veterans and military spouses, and we’re committed to hiring 25,000 by 2025.

Our commitment extends beyond hiring. We’re offering expanded benefits, including education opportunities. We have also opened over 50 Starbucks Military Family Stores across the U.S., and plan to dedicate 80 more by 2022. These are places where veterans and military families can work, connect and find transition guidance and information.

Through our partnerships, our goal is to be the leading corporate advocate and voice for transitioning veterans, military spouses and military families.

  1. Career Opportunities

    The leadership skills and work ethic of veterans and their spouses are invaluable to the success of our business and exactly what we look for in new partners (employees). We encourage you to explore career opportunities with us, which include unique benefits like our Starbucks College Achievement Plan. For those in the National Guard or Reserves, Starbucks offers up to 80 hours of pay each year when service obligations take you away from work.

  2. Connect with Us

    The Starbucks Armed Forces Network (AFN) on Facebook is open to all partners (employees) and advocates who want to support our military partners and their families. AFN’s mission is to help veterans transition to civilian employment and give all partners the opportunity to strengthen connections, while fostering a culture that supports and honors our military partners and their families.
