Starbucks has a reputation for having a store on every corner but there are some places where you just wouldn't expect to see one. A funeral home for example.
Well believe it or not that is exactly the location for the coffee giant's newest franchise.
Robinson Funeral Home in Easley, South Carolina, is taking customer service to a whole new level - for the living that is.
Grieving families will be able to seek comfort in a warm cup of freshly brewed coffee, in Robinson's appropriately named 'Coffee Corner', amid business offices and a chapel.
For owner Chris Robinson the development takes him back to his roots. The family business he now runs was started by his great-grandfather inside a main street general store, where people would gather and drink coffee.
And as controversial as the idea may sound Robinson insists it is just another service that is not at all disrespectful to the dead. There will be no Starbucks' signage on the building's exterior, because it is not a full-sized store
'You walk in the front, and it's off to the side,' he told wspa.com. 'It's not like it's right up front.'
