Starbuck's coming to Englewood...
First the Whole Foods Market announced in 2013 and now Starbuck's. I've reposted a gram from RAGE and now the "dreaded G word" is rearing its ugly head again:
Another jolt of economic activity for Englewood: Starbucks will soon join Whole Foods at 63rd and Halsted.

The upscale coffee maker plans to serve more than lattes. Also on the menu will be job-training for the disadvantaged, CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker reports.

Howard Bailey employs a half a dozen young people at his new cafe in Englewood. When he opened six months ago, he came in with a mission to hire youth from the community.

Bailey is doing exactly what Starbucks is planning. The coffee giant plans to build a shop and training center at 63rd and Halsted.

Like Bailey, Starbucks will target underserved youth aged 16 to 24. They plan to hire and train 20 to 25 at the Englewood location.
Look out for a job fair in August.

Whatever is happening in do we bring that to other parts of the city?
