Chapter 2

From 25 to7'624 Starbucks in less than 201 days

It all started on June 22nd 2015, with a simple phone call from the GLOBAL assistant of the global CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz.

Since then? 2 successful test phases in 25, then 415 Starbucks in NYC, Indianapolis, and Philadelphia.

201 days later, GOOD NEWS!
Tomorrow, Tuesday January 5th 2016, at 7 am sharp, is the NATIONAL launch of our cookie squares sittin’ in a row.
You’ll find them in 7,624 Starbucks, in all 50 States, from Hawaii to Florida and all the way up to Alaska ;)

Every month, 32 million Americans push open the doors of a Starbucks. For us, it’s a BIG dream come true!
To let French pastry-making savoir-faire and the made in France seal shine the WORLD through.

«Slow and steady wins the race», says the kookie-club ;)

A tiny issue…

At the Banana farm, our responsibility as OFFICIAL kooky cookie ? LIMITLESS ! We wear several hats:
1/ the one we wear every day for our job
2/ a pastry-chef’s hat
3/ and an area manager’s hat (or almost!). We try to check ALL our point of sales ;)

*To visit 25 Starbucks coffee shops on June 22nd 2015?
A piece of cake for us ;)
*To visit 415 Starbucks coffee shops on October 12th 2015?
We did it in 3 days, racking up 1’454 miles on the back of our supersonic cow ;)
*To visit 7’624 coffee shops?
It will be challenging for our small kookie-club! We’re going to need YOUR help..
