Starbucks: The Little Engine That Could Make Lattes
Those crafty Swiss! According to a Redditor, “the world’s first Starbucks on rails is currently being tested in Switzerland.” The Swiss had once attempted to launch McDonalds dining cars onboard their trains. That plan was derailed and now they’re choo choo choosing Schultz and Co. to create that Starbucks experience train-style. Make mine a double! I think I can, I think I can…come on ride the train! World Radio Switzerland has more:
A pilot project will bring two double-decker Starbucks cars to an Inter-City rail line between St Gallen and Geneva, beginning in 2013.
The shops will be staffed by the Federal Railways restaurant workers and, if successful, there might be more rolling Starbucks through the Swiss countryside.
All aboard! For more on trains, and the act of riding them, please see below:
