I got the chance to visit the NEPO Center branch in Angeles City. The place is perfectly situated in the heart of the city which is very accessible to different restaurants and establishments.
The ambiance is cozy given its limited space and the customer service is good something that I love about Starbucks, they make you feel comfortable while enjoying their well crafted coffee and freshly baked goodies.
In 1982, Howard Schultz, Starbucks chairman, president and chief executive officer joined the company wherein the year 1983, he travelled to Italy and loved the italian coffee shop and the experience which give him an idea to bring that to Starbucks in the United States, making the coffee shop a third place to go between work and home.
He left Starbucks and started his own Il Giornale coffeehouses but fate has a way of doing things, he returned in August 1987 and bought Starbucks with the help of some investors and the rest is history.
Today, Starbucks has now more than 17,000 branches worldwide and continue to expand year after year.
First Starbucks Branch in the Philippines
In December 4, 1997, the first Starbucks in the Philippines opened at the 6750 Ayala Building in Makati City which is a milestone for the Philippines became the third market to open outside North America.
Why Starbucks Coffee?
There are many coffee company today but Starbucks lead the game? I think more than serving quality coffee, they provide what we call the “Experience”. As you walk into a Starbucks store, you feel comfortable and it feels like the barista is your friend making the connection without the awkward feelings of you are the customer and I’m the server kind of feel. Starbucks breaks the stereotype customer-server relationship which is kinda awkward, stiff and unfriendly. Aside from that, Starbucks created a strong marketing presence and branding making the “Connection” to a wide market. And lastly, they do their fair share of Corporate Social Responsibility by helping communities and preserving the environment.
