Not like, delivered to a funeral or anything, but literally they're putting a Starbucks franchise inside of a funeral home!
A functioning funeral home!
The Robinson Funeral home in S.C. is getting the coffee shop next month, as Starbucks confirm that they'll be in a special wing of the building.
They claim it's just one more service for the grief-stricken.
Here's what the home's owner says:
"If this provides them a little escape, gives them a break from the stress they are going through, that's what its all about — to make them feel a little better."
"While we make lots of money from their grief," he probably wanted to follow up with.
Interestingly enough, the cafe will serve the public as well as mourners.
Weird. We wonder if it'll be a hit!
