NEW YORK (AP) – Starbucks says it plans to hire at least 10,000 veterans and military spouses over the next five years.

The Seattle-based coffee company says it will develop a system dedicated to matching the skills of veterans and military spouses with jobs throughout its organization. Starbucks says it has nearly 200,000 employees worldwide.

Several companies in recent years have committed to hiring veterans or military spouses. Earlier this year, for example, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said it planned to hire more than 100,000 veterans over the next five years.

Starbucks Corp., which has about 20,000 locations around the world, also says it will designate five cafes in military communities where a portion of each transaction is donated to Operations GoodJobs and Vested in Vets.
