Membership in the U.S. Starbucks Rewards program saw a notable jump, reaching 34.3 million, a 13% increase from the previous year.

The report also highlighted the company’s strong presence in the U.S. and China, which constitute 61% of the global portfolio. Notably, there are 16,466 stores in the U.S. and 6,975 stores in China.

“Our first quarter performance was strong on many measures. Of note was the unwavering commitment of our most loyal customers, the growth in rewards members, tender and spend per member,” said Starbucks CEO Laxman Narasimhan.
