SAN FRANCISCO -- Starbucks (SBUX) is hoping to return to its glory days by bringing back the man who created the company and brewed it to success.
Howard Schultz will add to his current position as chairman to also become chief executive of the java giant, replacing Jim Donald, who is leaving the company.
Schultz had served as CEO from 1987 to 2000, helping to grow the company from a humble chain of 100 coffee shops to about 15,000 stores today.
