Every so often, customers find their way to simply to request a Starbucks delivery truck.  It’s probably not an idea that is going to get launched nationally, but here in Seattle there are a few trucks set up for mobile Starbuck-ing!  Here’s one of many threads asking for Starbucks delivery trucks: StarTrucks thread at […]

Ask me anything about Starbucks!

We’ve all done it. We sit down at our computer and we ask Google a question. Google will search for any site that seems to have the right answer.  Through a wordpress plug in, I can see some of those search words that lead people to StarbucksMelody blog. I can’t see all of them, because […]

Starbucks has such a variety of store concepts. There is everything from the super tiny drive thru stores to larger, comfortable Evenings destination locations.

On June 4, 2013, Starbucks customers in Seattle, Spokane (Washington), and Portland (Oregon) will find that La Boulange pastries are in the stores.  Today, (May 21, 2013) I had the chance to preview many of the La Boulange bakery items.  The whole thing was a kick!  I met up with other bloggers, Starbucks PR representatives, […]
