What the? ....700 plus cups on day 2, whew!!!

I checked in today with the Corp-Ops folks to see how the Detroit Receiving Hospital opening was going...I stopped in yesterday, Sunday (opening day)and they were doing well....but that was Sunday in a Hospital, ya,know? see the video on this store

Anyway they are crankin' (700 cups today...so far) and I found out the secret ingredient...they got a bunch of the folks from the Grosse Pointe store...those guys are unbelievably good!

Ya'see we give away free drip coffee on Opening Day...but all I saw comin' out of the store was the 'big stuff', you know, the with the whipped cream and such...and everybody had a big smile...it made me smile.

Nick...you got it goin' on....it's a dynamite location, and you knew it! CONGRATS!

948 was the final count for Monday...yowza! Thank you so much Detroit Receiving, we love you!

Most openings build from one day to the next during opening week, which puts 258 within striking distance of breaking the all-time record for highest average daily cup count for opening week...at 928 cups.

Alright team, that means you need to knock out 1044 drinks a day down there--are you up to the task?

Yahoooooooo!!!

Oh yeah, and did I mention this is a kiosk?!!

And runs from 6a-8p weekdays and 8a-6p on the weekends?

So, officially the biggest kiosk opening ever. Should have thought of that before.

Keep it up!!!
