Fruity Pebbles/Cocoa Pebbles: Post secured innovative licensing rights from Hanna-Barbera to use the Flintstones characters on the cereal that was introduced nationally in October 1971.
Starbucks: Founders opened their first coffee store in 1971 near the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle and named it after the first mate, Starbuck, in Herman Melville’s classic novel “Moby Dick.”
Borders: Borders bookstore was founded in 1971 by brothers Tom and Louis Borders during their undergraduate and graduate years at the University of Michigan. The chain grew to more than 500 locations in the U.S. before the company ceased operations in 2011.
