Now Serving Grief Lattes: South Carolina Town to get its First Starbucks Inside a Funeral Home
Easley, South Carolina will be getting its first Starbucks, but here’s the catch…it will be inside a funeral home.
Four generations of Robinsons have been serving complimentary coffee as a perk to its clientele, but the Starbucks won’t be free. The Starbucks will be just like any other Starbucks: there will be a menu, cash register, and a barista to fill all the orders. Funeral Owner assured WSPA-TV that it will be off to the side and there won’t be any signage out front.
Some other “differences” with this Starbucks as I see it would be:
- Starbucks mugs as Urns – looking to inter the ashes of your loved one in something that they loved? Why not use a Starbucks go cup as an Urn?
- Formaldahyde Frapachinno – No, I don’t suggest that they actually used formaldahyde in making a Frapachinno, but have you seen the Starbucks Secret Menu?
- Tall, Grande, and Venti Coffins – enough said.
- Chaple Now with WIFI – One of the coolest things about Starbucks is their great WIFI.
- Chalk Obituarys – Memorialize your loved one on the chalkboard at this Starbucks.
