Business Case Study
Situation analysis
Jerry Baldwin, Gordon Bowker, and Zev Siegl founded the Starbucks Coffee, Tea, and
Spice Company in 1971. The central vision of Starbucks was to educate clients on excellent
coffee (Gopalakrishna, Victor & Fleischmann, 2016). In 1982, Howard Schultz joined the Seattleites
and became the vice-president and general manager at 28 years old. Schultz's vision of Starbucks
allowed him to acquire the marketing director position successfully. The central idea was to
expand Starbucks business through the adaption of the ritual and romance of coffee bars in Italy
Schultz's vision made him leave Starbucks and open his business called II Gorlanle,
Italian, for daily to re-create the Italian espresso bar moments. Surprisingly, Starbucks invested
in his business. Later, Schultz adopted Starbucks' name and expanded the business effectively.
The main focus was to create a "third place" where people can relax and interact together. In
1992, Starbucks became a public organization that led to a massive investment of people in the
company and business expansion. The company acquired high revenues due to its focus on new
products, markets, and grassroots campaigns to obtain strategic locations. Starbucks was always
a home for its clients where they could discover new things such as fresh coffee from Rwanda,
unique food, and new entertainment such as hear music. Unfortunately, Schultz was overthrown,
and Jim Donald became the CEO of Starbucks, 2000. In 2007, when the company faced a
challenging economy, it took back Howard Schultz to revive the company.
