Starbucks (SBUX) is winning the in-store mobile-payments war, beating tech heavyweights Apple, Google, and Samsung Electronics at their own game. The cafe chain's mobile-payment service will be used by 23.4 million Americans this year, edging Apple (AAPL), with 22 million. Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google unit, with 11.1 million users, and Samsung (South Korea: 005930), with 9.9 million, lag far behind, according to an eMarketer report released today.
Tech giants Google, Apple, and Samsung are racing to become the mobile-payment platform of choice worldwide. But for now, the king of the category is a coffee company: Starbucks. More than 23.4 million people will open the Starbucks app to pay for their coffee or tea at least once every six months in 2018, according…
Starbucks clarified its guest policy saying that employees have been instructed on how to deal with customers who are disruptive, smoke or use drugs or alcohol or sleep inside the cafes.
Trade War Back On Already? Yesterday, futures were way up in the early morning and strength followed through for the whole day, with the S&P 500 (^GSPC) ending up 20 points and the Dow Jones (^DJI) up almost 300 on the back of news that the trade war between the United States and China was […] The post Market Rundown – Mixed Trade War Signals, Starbucks Clarifies, Comcast Going British, Italy Exasperates Brussels appeared first on Market Exclusive.
Aida Batlle grows coffee on her family’s farm in the hills surrounding El Salvador’s Santa Ana Volcano. More than a decade later, coffee husk—or, as it’s better known, cascara—is having a moment. Starbucks Corp. recently introduced new drinks in the U.S. and Canada sweetened with cascara syrup, and offers a sugar topping made from the husk.
Starbucks Corp. tried to dig itself out of controversy Monday by attempting to clarify a policy toward nonpaying guests that generated an onslaught of weekend criticism. On Monday, Starbucks revealed more about the policy, telling The Wall Street Journal that employees now have detailed instructions on what to do if someone is behaving in a disruptive manner, such as smoking, using drugs or alcohol, using restrooms improperly or sleeping. At issue, in essence, is whether Starbucks views itself as a business that caters to customers, or a quasi-public place generally welcome to all.
Starbucks has revamped its customer policies after the arrest of 2 black men at a Philadelphia café last month sparked outrage #tictocnews https://bloom.bg/2IWZUYn (Source: Bloomberg)
Starbucks Corp. is revamping its customer policies following the arrests of two black men at a Philadelphia cafe last month. Anyone can now sit in a Starbucks store or patio or use the bathroom without buying anything, the company said in a statement on its website. If there’s an immediate threat of danger, such as the use of illegal drugs or physical assault, staff should call 911, the company said in an employee guide.
The letter says that employees are to treat all guests in its stores, on its patios and in the rest of its establishment as if they are customers. This is a change over the previous policy that Starbucks had when it came to guests just sitting around in its stores. It also says that store managers can still call police on disruptive or dangerous customers, reports CNNMoney.
Anyone who enters a Starbucks is now considered a customer, regardless if they buy anything, and are free to use the restrooms. Starbucks announced the new policy in a letter to employees Saturday, saying that “any person who enters our spaces, including patios, cafes and restrooms, regardless of whether they make a purchase, is considered…
Starbucks Corp. said Saturday it is creating an official policy that allows all guests to use its cafes, including its restrooms, whether or not they make a purchase. The policy comes a month after a Philadelphia manager called the police in April about two black men who asked to use the bathroom without purchasing anything and then allegedly refused to leave the cafe when asked. Starbucks baristas and store managers have long found the coffee company’s guidelines on how to treat lingering nonpaying guests vague at best.
Among the companies with shares expected to trade actively in Monday's session are General Electric, Qualcomm, Starbucks, United Technologies, Tesla and Snap.
Starbucks leaders said its previous policies were "loose and ambiguous," according to an Associated Press report, and gave too much discretion to local store managers.
When volatility picks up, investors flock to safety. It’s not a recent investment thesis or one derived from algorithmic trading. It’s a long-time reaction that’s generally driven by human psychology. As fears rise, investors first seek cash and then look for safe high-yield investments.

The new policy comes five weeks after two black men who hadn't bought anything were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks. Company executives have said its previous policies were loose and ambiguous, leaving decisions on whether people could sit in its stores or use the restroom up to store managers.
