Starbucks Coffee handcrafted beverages are now available in Pittsboro, North Carolina

Pittsboro, NC - Pittsboro residents created their own customized coffee beverages at the community’s first Starbucks store, which opened its doors at 141 Chatham Downs Drive on January 5. On January 4, the new store welcomed customers with complimentary coffee as well as samples of specialty espresso beverages and delicious pastries.

“With our new store, Starbucks brings a complete coffee experience to Pittsboro, and at the same time we’re solidifying our commitment to the community for years to come,” said Richard Keely, store manager of the new location. “We look forward to being a true neighborhood landmark, with the world’s finest coffees, and the area’s best spot to sit down and enjoy them among friends. Our goal is to become the ‘third place’ in the lives of our customers – a place to relax and experience life between home and work.”

The new Starbucks store offers the company’s renowned, roasted whole bean coffees, along with fresh, rich-brewed, Italian style espresso beverages, a variety of pastries and confections, and coffee-related accessories and equipment. The store will also feature another Starbucks mark of excellence: dedicated, quality service brought by a team of professionals, the Starbucks partners (employees).

“In addition to our quality coffees, pastries and brewing equipment, we’re proud to bring something truly unique to the table for our customers – a motivated team of Starbucks partners, who are attentive and knowledgeable, and who love the work they do every day,” added Richard Keely, “Not only are our partners committed to coffee and to our customers, they are an integral part of the community, giving back in countless ways.”

Starbucks encourages its partners to become socially active and to live the company’s mission of contributing positively to the community and the environment. The partners of this location have chosen Relay for Life, Chapel Hill, to build a long-term volunteer partnership in the Pittsboro community. In order to secure the long lasting and enthusiastic partners that the Starbucks family is renowned for, employees share the benefits of flexible work hours, great health benefits, stock options and a positive work environment.

This Pittsboro store is looking for full or part-time employees. For employment opportunities, applicants are encouraged to stop by any of our Starbucks locations or visit the starbucks web site.
