Rustan Coffee Corporation, a member of the Rustan Group of Companies is the authorized licensee of Starbucks Retail Business in the Philippines. The first Starbucks store opened on December 4, 1997 at 6750, Ayala Avenue. Starbucks has since won the hearts of the Filipinos.
Since then, over 300 stores have opened. Although Rustan Coffee has been able to serve perfect cups of coffee to distant places like Baguio and Davao, it will not stop there, continuing to share the "Starbucks Experience" with even more Filipinos one fresh cup of coffee at a time made by passionate partners (‘employees’) with the highest level of coffee expertise.
The tradition of warm hospitality, constant need for connection, and love for coffee –these are the qualities that make Starbucks Coffee and the Filipino people a great culture fit.
Our story began in 1971. Back then we were a roaster and retailer of whole bean and ground coffee, tea, and spices with a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.
Today, we are privileged to connect with millions of customers every day with exceptional products and nearly 18,000 retail stores in 60 countries.
We’re committed to offering our customers the world’s best coffee and the finest coffee experience –while also conducting our business in ways that produce social, environmental, and economic benefits for the communities in which we do business. We believe it’s possible to do well and do good at the same time.
