Seattle — Seattle’s Best Coffee, which is owned by Starbucks, has opened 12 stores since April, bringing it to almost 100 locations in the United States and Canada. The expansion reflects the chain’s strategy to build upon the brand’s broad distribution network of franchised locations, company-operated stores, relationships with restaurant chains, and foodservice locations.

"Our retail locations are important to our business, and franchising will be the engine for our continued retail growth," Jim McDermet, senior VP and general manager of Seattle’s Best Coffee, said in a statement.
