Is Starbucks a Franchise?

Unfortunately, Starbucks does not sell individual franchises, but there is one caveat. Starbucks will consider licensing its operation to an experienced "master" concessionaire or any other type of company that controls prime retail space that would improve Starbuck's company exposure. Examples would be in airports or government buildings, but just because a Starbucks franchise is not available doesn't mean you can't pick up a license on one of its strong competitors. There are many great alternatives with varying levels of investment opportunities.

If you are new to franchising, we suggest you speak with a franchise consultant about your goals before jumping into any franchise opportunity. For more information please visit our partner web site
