Fully Alive

Yahoo!!! Just finished up the class with the new crew at our opening-on-Wednesday Mission St. Mt. Pleasant store (our second store in Mt. Pleasant--the takeover has begun!), and I am a live wire.

What a great group! So you know how much fun it is to visit one of our stores and interact with those bright, shiny, wonderful baristas, two or three at a time? Imagine spending four hours with 26 of them! Okay, so they're not fully fledged baristas yet--this is just day one of training, but they have all of the raw materials of our baristas: they are fun, energetic, enthusiastic, hard-working, and...inspirational.

This is going to be a great weekend.

Want to meet them? Come visit on Wednesday, August 19th for the Grand Opening--we're excited!!!

So...I felt like I heard through the grapevine that the Mt. Pleasant store has some BIGGBY BOB fans who are going to do a cheer for him?? I'd enjoy seeing that!!
