"We don't want to become a public bathroom, but we're going to make the right decision 100 percent of the time and give people the key", he said.

"We want you to be more than".

Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson were both arrested, sparking a wave of protests outside Starbucks coffee shops across America.

"We have a - kind of a loose policy [that] you should be able to use the bathroom if you buy something", Schultz said.

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) has changed its restroom policy following the racist arrests of two black men in a Philadelphia location. That follows comments from Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz said he didn't want people to feel "less than" if they were refused access.

Nelson and Robinson were sitting in a Starbucks waiting for a business associate when a manger made a decision to call the police on the young men for just sitting there.

Schultz, who stepped down as the CEO of Starbucks last April, said the incident overall was "absolutely wrong in every way".

Starbucks didn't immediately respond to a request for further details about the change announced by Schultz. One of the two men was also denied access to the store's washroom after being told he wasn't a paying customer.

"It's one of those things you don't think about until you've got to go and then you realize - just try to find a place".

Nelson and Robinson settled with Starbucks earlier this month for an undisclosed sum and an offer of a free college education.

Starbucks has since apologized to the men and announced plans for extra racial bias training for its employees.

The men who were arrested have since reached a symbolic $1 settlement with the city, and the city pledged $200,000 for a program that would benefit young entrepreneurs.
