Starbucks will hire more then 700 new workers in the United States by the end of this year, according to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz.
Schultz said in a blog post that the company will increase hiring to support the company’s growth, and to meet demand for its coffees.
Starbucks plans to hire nearly 1,000 employees in 2018.
“We are very excited about our plans to increase hiring in the Americas, where our customers are our greatest market share,” Schultz wrote.
Starbucks is also working with the National Institutes of Health to create a pilot program to help test its coffee beans, according the company.
This comes after Starbucks announced it was cutting 3,500 jobs last year.
