Real

People make a difference...

I just wanted to say that I am a lowly writer that was just laid off from his job as a Machinist at Dowding Industries yesterday. I'd been there close to 4 years and it hurt to be cut loose. This evening, I had my last few dollars and wandered into my Charlotte Biggby location and Amanda greeted me. I secretly wanted to stay miserable and ordered a Vanilla Latte. After handing her my Biggby swipe card, her eyes grew as she told me I was on my free coffee! I was delighted. The staff blew me away and consistently do with their excellent customer service. In a bad economy, go BIGGBY!

I am so sorry you were layed of from your job. As I have experienced that, I am able to empathize about the pain involved. On the bright side,
my lay off sent me job seeking in different directions.
Although my Barista position is not my educated area of expertise, (inscribed on my diploma) it truly has been tons of fun and very rewarding.
Again, I feel your pain but can attest-BIGGBY, either thru employment or just by choosing to patronize can lift the soul!!!!
much BIGGBY love,
