STARBUCKS’ RESPONSE TO SPOKANE’S SHIRTLESS MALE BARISTAS

imageSeattle, Washington – No one messes with Starbucks, not even Hot Cup Of Joe’s, the coffee shop which opened on Valentine’s Day in Spokane, featuring shirtless male baristas.

Ever heard of  bottomless mimosas or bottomless margaritas? Well, Starbucks will soon introduce its bottomless baristas – male and female both. The Seattle-based coffee company said this is in response to the Spokane coffee shop’s shirtless baristas. Starbucks will open its first bottomless coffee shop in Seattle later this month, and it has nothing to do with bottomless coffee. Rather, the coffee shop will employ male and female baristas who will wear top clothing, but not bottoms.

If the new “experiment” is well-received, Starbucks said it will  ask its franchise stores in the U.S. and across the globe to convert to bottomless coffee shops. However, Starbucks will authorize only one bottomless coffee shop per town or city, and the franchise stores will have to apply to be selected through a rigorous competitive bidding process.
