Starbucks CEO Asking Customers Not to Carry Guns Inside Cafe
I am starting to like Starbucks even more now after the CEO has sent out an open letter asking customers to not carry guns inside the cafe. This could be the leading of a trend across America. Don't believe me, just watch.
Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, gave an open letter to the New York Times asking for customers to leave their weapons outside of the stores. Starbucks will continue to serve people who come in with weapons because they still want their business. Not only do they want to serve weapon carrying customers, they don't want to upset them.
Schultz even talks about why it is important to his partners to serve those who are carrying in his open letter.
"Enforcing a ban would potentially require our partners to confront armed customers, and that is not a role I am comfortable asking Starbucks partners to take on."
Starbucks is the spot for me to get away and get some coffee and surf the web. I even make the franchise my date night location. I want my experience to be safe and pleasant. I think the CEO of Starbucks made it clear what side of gun control line he's on. Salute.
Do you think the CEO of Starbucks is stupid for asking people to not carry guns in his stores? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
