The company had gotten away from that vision, but since 2008, they have sought to renew it.

(Schultz & Gordon, 2011) Schultz made phone call to store to personally ask how things were going (Groth, 2011) (Groth, 2011) Launched a major advertising campaign-- something Starbucks had not done previously. (Groth, 2011) Increased the company's presence in social media and re-created the company's website (Groth, 2011) Schultz invited the public to email him directly
He immediately received 5,000 messages Effectiveness of Change Financially, the changes appear to be successful Starbucks is the largest coffee chain in the world The first quarter of 2012 was a record quarter, with total net revenues increasing by 16% (Starbucks, 2012) Starbucks began 2012 with a total of 17,003 stores worldwide, with 10,787 of those stores in the U.S. (Statistic, 2012)
