Boycott leads to layoff of 2,000 Starbucks Middle East employees

Kuwaiti Alshaya Holding, the owner of the Starbucks franchise in the Middle East and North Africa, has announced the layoff of 2,000 employees. The decision comes as Starbucks branches in the region have been facing calls for a boycott due to the chain’s stance amid Israel’s conflict with Hamas, which is perceived as pro-Israel.

Currently, Starbucks employs 11,000 people across 1,300 branches in the region, with no presence in Israel. An attempt to open Starbucks in Israel in 2001 failed and led to the closure of six branches two years later.

Meanwhile, social media marketing (SMM) panels and platforms have been gaining popularity for boosting brand presence and reaching a wider audience. Various forums and discussions are focused on topics such as buying followers, Instagram growth, and using SMM panels effectively.

Overall, these events highlight the evolving landscape of business operations and marketing strategies in the digital age.
