I believe this is a fraud. Neither the Caribou Coffee website or the Arcapita website contain these pages. I don’t think that you want to trust this source; it looks like they have linked to bogus website pages.
I am also skeptical. If the majority holder of Caribou espouses Sharia law, it is in direct conflict with having young women with brightly colored hair and nose rings working at the place.
Looks true to me.
