Interesting. The USS Boxer, a Navy assault ship currently at sea, now has a Starbucks on board. The shop will provide sailors with Starbucks coffees, teas, and smoothies. The personnel running the shop are Naval personnel who have been trained by Starbucks baristas in how to make the drinks and operate the machines. Navy personnel will be able to use their Navy cash cards to purchase drinks from the shop during normal working hours. They have aptly named it ‘Starboxer’. All profits will go to the ship’s Morale, Welfare, and Recreation fund, according to the Navy.
It’ll be interesting to see if more ships follow this trend.
