Review "Built for Growth shows exactly how to create winning retail brands, how to create a unique, compelling brand even as you establish a rock-solid foundation for long-term success. Arthur Rubinfeld architected Starbuck's expansion from 100 stores to nearly 4,000, helping to establish Starbucks as one of the world's most-recognized brands. Now, drawing on his singular expertise with Starbucks and as a consultant to Oakley, Gateway, Adidas, and Washington Mutual, he offers breakthrough strategies and techniques for all facets of retail: choosing locations, recruiting management and associates, defining organizations and systems, designing stores, merchandising, day-to-day execution, and more."--BOOK JACKET
