Funeral Home Attaching Coffee Shop To It’s Building For People Needing Comfort Or Cup Of Coffee
EASLEY, S.C. (AP) — A funeral home in Easley will be offering what it calls the Starbucks experience to those needing comfort, or just a cup of coffee.
Robinson Funeral Home is building a coffee shop attached to the funeral home.
The Coffee Corner will feature Starbucks coffee and food and also will be open to those who don’t need other services from the funeral home.
Chris Robinson says the Coffee Corner will include a fireplace, TV and Wi-Fi.
Starbucks employees will train employees at the funeral home later this month before the shop opens.
Robinson says there’s nothing like food or coffee to help comfort those who have experienced a loss.
