Getting Down to Business

“When I need a midday pick-me-up, I visit my local Starbucks. It’s a few steps away from the Keratin Lounge (PA) , making it easy to satiate my coffee cravings. 

The best thing about Starbucks is that whether I am in PA, NYC, on-the-go, or on the road, I know that I can always find a Starbucks to fill my afternoon coffee fix.  The consistently warm atmosphere and friendly staff always make me feel at home. I have a busy life and standing in line is not an option when you need to be in two places at once. Never having to wait in long lines puts Starbucks at the top of my favorites list.

My local Starbucks will always have a special place in my heart. It played a major role in my life when I expanded LASIO and decided to move to PA and open a salon in Stroudsburg.

Its convenient location and welcoming atmosphere made it easy for me to conduct off-site interviews and still be able to oversee the construction of the salon. My future staff members didn’t feel like they were being interviewed in a coffee shop. Starbucks doesn’t only have great coffee. It has its professional perks too :)”
