Excel Construction Services Inc. has built a new store for Starbucks in the city of Long Beach.

This beautiful store is part of a group of stores that have been built in under served communities that could benefit from economic development. Each store is built by women or minority-owned contractors, staffed by partners from the community and sells product made by local, diverse vendors.

Excel is a woman owned business, certified by WBENC: the leader in women’s business development. WBENC’s mission is to fuel economic growth globally through access to opportunities, by identifying, certifying and facilitating development of women-owned business.

The Long Beach store is also partnering with Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network, a nonprofit with which it will offer free training programs to help young people develop job skills. It’s an ongoing relationship to help create local jobs.

Starbucks and Pacific Gateway worked together to provide 15 youths who have experienced obstacles on their way into the workforce with training and jobs at the new store.

Starbucks employees who work at least 20 hours a week are also eligible to study for bachelor’s degrees through Arizona State University.

Excel Construction is extremely honored to be a part of something so impactful and potentially life-changing for these youths.
