Starbucks are not necessarily company owned. the ones in airports mostly are run by HMSHost under a license. My local Starbucks is owned by one of Magic Johnson's enterprises which has other stores in the DC area.

Magic Johnson hasn't owned any Starbucks in 10 years.

I believe most, if not all, "standalone" Starbucks are company-owned. The ones inside other locations (airports, supermarkets, Target, etc.) are "licensed" operations, but not franchises.

Licensed locations still have the same district managers. The standards are still quite strict for licensed lications.
