Starbucks Shipping Container Stores

Author : Scott Gordon | Date : December 19, 2013

“Our designers were inspired to create this store both as a result of the shipyard that can be seen out the back windows of our headquarters in South Seattle as well as a desire to recycle the same kind of shipping containers that transport our coffees and teas around the world,” said Starbucks spokesman Zack Hutson in an e-mail.

Many of the old shipping containers end up in scrap yards after an average lifespan of about 20 years, Hutson said.

“Starbucks is experimenting with new design formats that reclaim the expired containers – taking them out of scrap yards and converting them into stores,” Hutson said.

The company also is focused on green-building initiatives not only to help reduce operating costs but also to lead by example and to push the environmental design envelope in retail.

“This means finding solutions that help keep things used throughout the company’s supply chain, like old shipping containers, out of the waste stream,” Hutson said.
