Whenever anyone signs or plays songs from the movie ‘Lagaan’, I am instantly transported to my old flat which had this blue dorky couch. I loved that couch so much that I would insist on sleeping on it even in the night!
We all have a certain nostalgic value linked with someplace, smell, color, or even food, don’t we? Some fragrance you wore on your first date with your now-husband, some song which defines a phase of your life, or just someplace which has many fond memories which makes you feel fuzzy inside.
For Repos, Starbucks has always been that place.
“We started ideating and sketching Repos on paper, sitting for many hours in Starbuck and ordering endless mugs of coffee. It got to a point that the store started to maintain our account there. Starbucks was our first-ever office! From starting out to closing our first order, all the celebrations have been at Starbucks!” the founders said sharing the memories!
“We feel so comfortable in Starbucks that sometimes we conduct some important meetings in Starbucks still. It is their extremely friendly service, the cozy atmosphere, and just the calm which they serve with a delicious cup of coffee.”
And then last year, Starbucks held a Coffee Tasting event in the Repos Office, where they even taught how to brew a perfect cup of coffee!
Vikram, who is an ex-employee of Starbucks and now is a part of our Repos family came with the Starbucks team for the coffee tasting, says,
“It is insane how friendly people are here. I was in awe of Repos when I came here to the Coffee tasting event. There are so many similarities in the working culture of Starbucks and Repos, I see. There are bonds, friendships, and immense respect amongst co-workers. Repos is crafting its future and its present every day with love and lots of positivity.”
There were only smiles and so much love brewing in Repos when Starbucks paid us a visit last year. That day, our gratitude-rich hearts couldn’t help but dance joyously to the efforts made by Starbucks. It indeed was yet another amazing day in our office!
A big Thanks to Starbucks India!
