Englewood Starbucks to hire, train underserved youth

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The first Starbucks store of its kind is coming to Chicago.

Mayor Emanuel is expected to announce the groundbreaking of a concept store in the city's Englewood neighborhood.

This Starbucks location is unique in that it will focus on hiring and training underserved young people.

The store will be located next to the Whole Foods being built at West 63rd and South Halsted streets.

Both the Starbucks and the Whole Foods are part of a new development called "Englewood Square," which is expected to open next year.
