The latest quarter also saw an expansion in Starbucks’ GAAP operating margin, which grew 140 basis points year-over-year to 15.8%.

This improvement was primarily driven by sales leverage and enhanced in-store operational efficiencies, the company said.

Over the quarter, Starbucks continued its expansion, opening 549 net new stores, concluding the period with a total of 38,587 stores globally, of which 51% are company-operated and 49% are licensed.

Starbucks Corporation CEO Laxman Narasimhan stated: “Our first quarter performance was strong on many measures. Of note was the unwavering commitment of our most loyal customers, the growth in rewards members, tender and spend per member.

“Despite headwinds, our brand is very strong, and that coupled with innovation and a relentless focus on our green apron partners form long-term differentiators, along with focused execution on Triple Shot Reinvention, will drive balanced and attractive earnings growth.”
