Starbucks has more than 8,000 stores nationwide. One of them will soon be run entirely in American Sign Language.
Starbucks’s first signing store in the United States will hire 20 to 25 deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing people with the requirement that they be proficient in American Sign Language. Roughly 200 current employees identify as deaf or hard of hearing, according to a company representative, including at Starbucks stores, roasting plants, and regional and corporate offices around the world. Now Starbucks says the store — set to open in Washington in October — will boost hiring and accessibility for deaf and hard-of-hearing employees and customers alike.
