Starbucks - A Cupful of Systems
It’s almost embarrassing to realize I visit Starbucks coffee stores so frequently they tend to know me by name! If my wife Susan didn’t know better, she might be jealous when younger women at various stores cheerfully welcome me as if I were their only customer.
She likes to tell people I have the entire United States mapped out by Starbucks locations. Of course, when we travel, she’s pretty quick to locate one for me with a Google search on her Droid. I like that system!
