TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY COFFEE SHOP 'ONE MORE CUP' POSTS INSPIRING LOCAL COFFEE GAME PERSPECTIVE AS STARBUCKS MOVES TO BROOKSIDE!!!

ONE MORE CUP PENS A HOPEFUL BUT DEFIANT COMMENT REGARDING STARBUCKS NEARBY!!!
Take a look at the best reaction to the Starbucks Brookside move:
"This isn't scary to us. It's disappointing, since we love that Brookside and Waldo has been mostly small, unique, locally-owned joints. There has been a trend of non-local property owners in the area who don't really seem to actually know the neighborhoods they buy in. We hope people continue striving to support and buy local, but...
People will go to this Starbucks. They'll also go to The Roasterie, Bella Napoli, Second Best, Crows, One More Cup. Each shop will have the people who swear it's the best, who swear it's the worst, and everything in between. We are going to keep doing what we do - talking with people, serving up great drinks and snacks, and being ourselves. No other shop will make or break us, just our own actions will. Drink what makes you happy, and where you feel good."
The reality is that "One More Cup" offers a unique experience that no other local place can replicate. They hire great, friendly people and serve their customers with a lot of care . . . The same can't be said of Starbucks.
Even better, of all the coffee places in KC . . . The One More Cup Instagram actually feels like it's operated by a REAL person and in this day and age of corporate-speak . . . That is noteworthy.
As always, we want our blog community to support local biz and this bit of bravery in the face of a mega-corporation is one of the reasons why.
