We’re excited to announce a collaboration with the social networking site, Foursquare. I’ve been playing with Foursquare for about a year now, and until recently, I was the mayor of the Starbucks Support Center (Starbucks headquarters). I have a plan to earn that back, and it may or may not involve working seven days a week ☺.
Now you can earn the "Barista Badge" by checking into five different Starbucks. The application is available for most smart phones like the iPhone, Android devices and Blackberry.
One other item that we will include is "Tips" about different Starbucks stores. We’re looking for info about your store that is unique, different and interesting. One of the first tips we’ll post is about the Pike Place™ store being the first Starbucks. So, tell us in the comments below, what’s special or unique about your store? Was it the first store in your city? Make it a guide to your city, through the lens of your store.
