US-IL-Chicago-Princi Kitchen Chicago - PKCHI Starbucks Princi Kitchen - Culinary and Bakery/Baking

Now Baking – Baker, Princi Kitchen


From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that celebrates coffee, it’s rich tradition, and a feeling of connection.  Continuing our quest in 2016, we announced a partnership with Princi, a renowned boutique bakery and café founded by Rocco Princi in 1986. Known for its artisan breads created from traditional family recipes, Princi’s six locations have become beloved experiences for customers across Milan and London.


To bring this vision to life we have opened a Princi Kitchen in Chicago to prepare all the food served in Roasteries and Princi Bakeries.  The kitchen team will continue to bring to life the Princi brand by creating handcrafted foods such as pastries, cakes, fresh soups, salads and focaccia-style pizza as well as artisanal baked breads.

Join us on this special journey!
