Starbucks to create 5,000 jobs


Starbucks expects to create 5,000 jobs over the next five years, driven by a rapid expansion of its drive-through formats.

The coffee chain, which has 736 stores in the UK, will open 300 outlets over this period, of which a third will come from its partnership with petrol forecourt retailer Euro Garages.

Starbucks UK will add about 100 of its own drive-through formats in addition to conventional high street shops.
