US License Store Asset Tracking: Developing an Asset Tracking Strategy for US Licensed Store Business Division


The 2023 Tauber team was tasked with developing an asset tracking strategy for all US Starbucks licensee stores, identifying critical assets, establishing a record source to view and maintain data on existing data management systems, and creating data ownership and sustainable processes for accuracy and integrity. With accurate and updated data, Starbucks can communicate with the licensee stores effectively and efficiently, which reduces operating costs and supports its sustainability goals.
