Protesters have been calling for the manager’s firing since two black men were arrested for trespassing last week while waiting on an acquaintance for a business meeting.

The chief executive officer of Starbucks is in Philadelphia to have a meeting with Mayor Jim Kenney and is hoping to deliver a face-to-face apology to the two men.

The second day of protests has kept the Starbucks store near Rittenhouse Square from opening to the public.

The protesters entered the store Monday morning and chanted, “Starbucks Coffee is anti-black.”
