Starbucks To Open Inside Funeral Home
There are so many of them that I once joked they’re going to open a Starbucks inside a Starbucks.
Robinson Funeral Home, a fourth-generation business in Easley, South Carolina, has announced the impending addition of a Starbucks franchise to its existing services, which currently include a chapel and a crematory.
The so-called “Coffee Corner” will also offer mourners food, a fireplace, and free Wi-Fi.
Owner Chris Robinson said the funeral home his great-grandfather started was located inside a main street general store where coffee was served, and it has been serving free coffee ever since, so the decision to open a Starbucks was not as far-fetched as it seems.
You don’t have to be a customer to visit the Starbucks, so anyone can pick up a
mourning morning coffee.
