Starbucks Coffee Company (NASDAQ:SBUX) issued a statement Tuesday regarding the company’s Come Together petition.
It urges elected leaders in Washington, DC to reopen the government, pay the debts on time and pass a bi-partisan and comprehensive long-term budget deal by the end of the year.
The company said petitions are continuing to arrive from Starbucks’ nearly 7,000 company-operated stores in the U.S.[ Also Read: Obamacare Is Free If You Have $34,000 ]
