FILE- This March 24, 2018, file photo shows a sign in a Starbucks store. Starbucks apologized to two sheriff's deputies in California and said it would carry out an internal investigation after complaints by the sheriff that the coffee retailer's employees refused to serve the officers, the Los Angeles Times reported. The alleged mistreatment of the Riverside County sheriff's deputies took place Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019, at a Starbucks near the campus of the University of California, Riverside.

DETROIT - Starbucks has a point to prove: There's more to the company than selling $4 lattes to rich people.

The Seattle-based coffee giant that has cultivated a reputation for being socially responsible said Thursday it is expanding its effort to put more coffee shops - and create more jobs - in poor neighborhoods.
