The Seattle-based coffee giant that has cultivated a reputation for being socially responsible is expanding its effort to put more coffee shops and create more jobs in poor neighborhoods. Starbucks plans to open or remodel eighty-five stores by 2025 in rural and urban communities across the US. Each store will hire local staff, including construction crews and artists, and will have community event spaces. The company will also work with local United Way chapters to develop programs at each shop, such as youth job-training classes and mentoring.
