I recently came across the Starbucks Green Apron book and read through their 5 principles for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. At Starbucks, an ordinary commodity – coffee – is transformed into an EXTRAORDINARY With that, she handed me The Green Apron Book. In my book, The Starbucks Experience: 5 Principles for Turning Ordinary into The green apron book easily fits into a barista's pocket and it serves to highlight.
How does it look and feel? It closes with three simple sentences: Creating the experience that keeps people coming back relies on the magical combination of three things: our products, our places, and our people. They come for coffee, stay for the inviting warmth, and return for the very human connection. Now go ahead, welcome your next new regular!
I was hooked! From that day on, I have been in and out of dozens of Starbucks all across the country, I have read all the books about Starbucks, I have talked with many baristas, and I even have the basic training materials used by Starbucks for new team members.
How are you serving the guests at your church? Central to the experience at Starbucks is the barista, the smiling face that greets you when you come into the store and takes your order. Starbucks understands the importance of the front-line interaction its baristas have with their customers.
They realize that customers can go almost anywhere to get a cup of coffee, but the experience that Starbucks delivers is not commonplace. As a matter of fact, Starbucks will even cut into its efficiency and the risks that entails to make sure the experience being delivered is extraordinary.
Application to ChurchWorld Recently I was speaking with a group of church leaders about the importance of guest services and creating great experiences that leave a WOW! First Impression. Where do we start? Starbucks may have a good product lineup; it may have its service processes down to a science, and it may offer the most comfortable, friendly place to hang out alone or with friends. But neither product nor process nor place have any traction without the people greeting you with a smile, asking what you would like maybe suggesting something new , and then servicing you with speed, excellence, and always a smile.
You have to have a great team in place first before you can begin to deliver excellent experiences.
The same is true in ChurchWorld: the experiences that you are attempting to create, the places and spaces in which they are housed — both literally and figuratively — are important.
When an organization helps its team members bring pride, excellence, and playfulness to every aspect of their task, those team members literally have the chance to change the lives of those around them. People want to be a part of something bigger than themselves. This really parallels my thoughts on what I had read:.
Another cool thing I noticed. When you dig down into the detail of the Be Welcoming principle, you find the following:. This completely impressed me — because I experienced it.
Thanks for the tip — I was wondering how to get my hands on one — I to read that book, and am about to start my own service business, and Starbucks has it down.
I finished reading the book and have been to 3 Starbucks store and asked for a copy of the green apron book…none of them neew what I was talking about. It is for internal use only! Hi This supports the theory that there must be a mirror universe somewhere.
I mean that does starbucks in US, Singapore, thailans , Indonesia will give the same experience? Hi, This is Meenakshi from India. Well i have heard a lot about this book and the way its been used to motivate the starbucks staff. Recently in Dubai one of my causin visited two of the outlets of star bucks and to his disaapointment, both the outlets were not able to provide him with the same.
I really would like to read this book would appreciate if some one can tell me how to get hold of one.
I also went into a starbucks store and they told me it was for employees only and that there is a copyright on it and employees have to sign a agreement to not use it for personal use or they will be sued by the corporation.
Tell me how to get one!! I just walked in, asked for it, and it was handed to me — no questions asked. Its interesting to see the different reactions from Starbucks employees around the world. Its common sense stuff. I have a hard time imagining why there would be resistance to sharing it with customers, especially given my experience.
Though they are making entry plans.
How can I access a copy — any plac eon the net where I can download one? I have one and will email you the details contained within. Also, I just checked site and found one. I worked for Starbucks and helped develop the Green Apron book. The book is a very cool tool and partners are proud of it. Yes, you are provided with a single copy to use as a personal guide when you begin work at Starbucks. If you just read my last post and are thinking about asking me for a Green Apron Book, you may have to forgive my hard drive for crashing and destroying what I had of it in digital form.
I have been getting about two or three people per month asking me for it, but it took me a while to get around to finding out where in the world wide web I posted a comment saying I had it.
If your partners and employees do not have access to the material, how are they suppose to deliver the starbuck experience? So they mailed me both a copy of the Green Apron Book as well as a Coffee passport — woo hoo.
