Starbucks changing to 2 at a time.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Starbucks is lowering the number of simultanious drinks being made to 2 at a time. I personally think that it will end up being less room for error but longer lines will form. Starbucks stores that have high volume will take the biggest hit. This includes mall stores, big city stores (eg. NYC), etc.
These stores are also most prone to error because of the high volume of customers they serve. Baristas will be found forming 6-7 drinks at the same time and trying to keep them organized and on the right track. Starbucks is responding to a report that states a certain error margin that they’d like to lower, and I agree with their solution. It will take time for the baristas to adjust to this new way of making drinks but I think it will end up for the better.
