Starbucks — a tradition! In 1983, founder Howard Schultz traveled to Italy and became captivated with Italian coffee bars and the romance of the coffee experience. He had a vision to bring the Italian coffeehouse tradition back to the United States. Today it is a place for patrons to engage in conversation and enjoy a sense of community.


As stated on the website, “From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated coffee and the rich tradition, but that also brought a feeling of connection.


“Our mission to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time.”


Starbucks is about about three miles from Kensington at Chelmsford.
