  6. 6. P age |5 OUR STARBUCKS MISSION To inspire and nurture the human spirit— one person, one cup, and one neighbourhood at a time. Here are the principles of how we live that every day: Our Coffee It has always been, and will always be, about quality. We’re passionate about ethically sourcing the finest coffee beans, roasting them with great care, and improving the lives of people who grow them. We care deeply about all of this; our work is never done. Our Partners We’re called partners, because it’s not just a job, it’s our passion. Together, we embrace diversity to create a place where each of us can be ourselves. We always treat each other with respect and dignity. And we hold each other to that standard. Our Customers When we are fully engaged, we connect with, laugh with, and uplift the lives of our customers— even if just for a few moments. Sure, it starts with the promise of a perfectly made beverage, but our work goes far beyond that. It’s really about human connection. Our Stores When our customers feel this sense of belonging,our stores become a haven, a break from the worries outside, a place where you can meet with friends. It’s about enjoyment at the speed of life—sometimes slow and savoured, sometimes faster. Always full of humanity. Our Neighbourhood Every store is part of a community, and we take our responsibility to be good neighbours seriously. We want to be invited in wherever we do business. We can be a force for positive action— bringing together our partners, customers, and the community to contribute every day. Now we see that our responsibility—and our potential for good—is even larger. December 1, 2011 The world is looking to Starbucks to set the new standard, yet again. We will lead. Our Shareholders We know that as we deliver in each of these areas, we enjoy the kind of success that rewards our shareholders.

The Store are always in immaculate condition and often is place where people get together for studying or even meet friends. Starbucks is sometimes location landmark at certain places. Starbucks being an international company has close to 55,000 stores around the world and more than 4000 stores in Canada. The company is growing tremendously and is now again becoming a market leader with increasing sales. In past few years Canadian coffee market is growing close to 157 % and new entrants have limited space to grow, Since Starbucks is an established company in Canada it has opportunity to increase competition by taking customers from its competitors. Starbucks is a premium coffee shop with prices sometimes beyond the reach of certain group of people and now machines are available to make good coffee at home. Economic conditions have also created lot of issues like increase in oil prices, transportation prices have increased, as best coffee beans comes from places around the world such as Africa and South America . Starbucks is still working hard to provide best consumer experience and great coffee at the best price possible.  Competitive Analysis Tim Horton’s is one of the biggest competitors in Canada for Starbucks, with Second cup catching up. Tim Horton is offering low priced coffee in price sensitive market, and customers who are less knowledgeable about coffee are attracted to Tim Horton’s. Some new local coffee stores are also threating Starbucks as they would prefer local shop than driving all the way to some Starbucks coffee shop. Marketing Strategy  Positioning strategy Starbucks is expanding in a big way, opening coffee shops in new locations and near densely populated areas. Starbucks have coffee shops close to malls, retail shops or even urban business areas so that customers does not have to travel far to get their favourite coffee. Starbucks logo is one of the most recognizable logo in the world, and having a Starbucks coffee cup in their hands is a sense of pride for loyal customers who do not want to be seen with competitor’s products.
