What the hell have they done to the drive-through behind Starbucks over there by Wal-Mart?
Have you tried to get a cup of coffee by using the new Starbucks drive-thru located over by Wal-Mart in Lake Geneva? Well, you may have an interesting experience there if you do. The line now extends behind three buildings, instead of through and behind a parking area. Once you get in the line you will wait until you get through, and that can be quite some time given the fact that manually making espresso and specialty drinks can take a barista five minutes for each customer. Six cars in line and you can easily wait for half an hour. Who’s got that kind of time, and there’s room for almost a dozen cars in that line? You don’t get to know how many cars are waiting either until you turn the corner at the back end of the lot, and then it’s too late to bail out. The only way to know in advance is to drive by on 120 and check to see how many cars are in that coffee tunnel by glancing west as you drive. Lousy plan, but then that entire coffee shop orientation is one of strange planning and even stranger implementation.
