Our Canadian Story

The first Starbucks to open in Canada was at the Seabus Skytrain Station in Vancouver on March 1, 1987. This store was Starbucks Coffee’s first cafe to open outside of Seattle, and since then Canadians have been embracing the Starbucks Experience in more than 1,200 company-operated and licensed locations across Canada.
Our cafes are not the only place you can enjoy our great coffee. In fact, we have various channels within Canada like grocery, lodging and restaurants, we offer additional brands like Seattle’s Best Coffee and Teavana® and even formats like Starbucks VIA® and Starbucks® K-Cup® Portion Packs. Our future is bright with growth and continued recognition that Canada is a strong contributor to the global business.

In 2002, Toronto became home to our Canada Support Centre and invested in regional infrastructure by establishing offices in some of Canada’s largest and most diverse cities including: Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. And since 2011, we have expanded our business to include teams in Channel Business Development (CPG), Global Supply Chain, Speciality Retail Sales and Public Affairs.

Partners are truly at the heart of our success and at Starbucks Canada we proudly support the careers of more than 14,000 full and part time partners (employees). It’s an exciting time to be a Canadian partner as our business grows.
