Starbucks is an American global coffee company and coffeehouse chain based in Seattle, Washington. It is currently the largest coffeehouse company in the world.
In its endeavour for their stores to become more energy efficient, Starbucks is increasingly moving towards the implementation of LED lighting in its outlets to become 'greener' in their business operations.
Spurlite became involved with Starbucks through a long process of providing samples and proving product suitability, efficiency and durability through design and demonstration. We work with both Starbucks directly and a number of their franchisees which has resulted in a portfolio of products that are now approved for almost all applications within the stores.
The ongoing Starbucks projects we work on include a combination of new stores and refurbishments for which we have had to get official supplier approval status from Starbucks. We had to provide assurance and confidence that Spurlite could design to the strict lighting criteria as governed by Starbucks head office in Seattle, and still maintain the same look and feel that they require.
