Quite a number. Regularly go to a number of different ones, granted mostly in the same city. Hiring processes and policies will be centralised to an extent. Chains, even franchised ones often have a certain consistency. Existing staff can influence what new staff will be like - and who will want to stay employed etc - shaping the staff base. Wasn't making a big point out of it, but I will notice if I ask for something at Subway and the person fails to be understand me and there's a communication barrier - with Subway especially if you go off script it's not as smooth I've found. And obviously going to notice if the barista is aggressive ("hipster" guy in Starbucks for example), or that Costa staff seem far more predominantly English, and often older than Nero staff - who I find very friendly. And that Nero will e.g. give free stamps, or if the o2 code fails to work may not require the code. While when an "unlimited" code at Costa expired I had to pay full price. In my experience Nero staff go above and beyond. See next time if your experiences match that as well. If I go to Nero I expect friendly international staff.
I have a voucher for some stamp for salads. I think it might be that?
What happens is you scan your barcode on your app when you buy your hot drink then instantly you get a QR code on the app for a free hot drink.
You get a voucher for a complimentary coffee instantly, every time you make a puchase via the app. I have quite a few vouchers saved and they are valid for two weeks. Has anyome used one of the complimentary vouchers for a drink other than a coffee, im wondering if that works?
I don’t think I’ve ever noticed or paid attention to the nationality of the staff who serve me. How many different Starbucks/Caffe Nero/Subway/ Costa stores are your comments based on?
