A Tall Start
Like many of Urban Work's first time clients, Starbucks got its start with one flagship location, taking tall steps towards a much bigger goal.
The Grande Goals
Starbucks became a client in 1992, when they only had 5 stores in Portland and long before the average person developed a taste for coffee which would turn into a must-have pick me up. At the time Urban Works was able to see Starbucks' vision of the all day experience and negotiated with landlords to lease premier end cap spaces to what was at the time, an unproven concept.
The Venti Takeover
A Venti Takeover is no small task, but if anyone can do it it's Starbucks. What started out as a neighborhood cafe would take many strides including the successful drive-thru concept. To-date we have negotiated over 200 leases on their behalf.
