Cadboro Bay Village gets its coffee shop back

https://www.timescol...back-1.24324047

 

The Sparlings expect to open any day, awaiting final paperwork to clear through Saanich. The couple have been busy “de-Starbucking” the space for several months, have hired new staff and completed training, and are fine-tuning a menu that will include takeaway snacks and sandwiches for picnics on the nearby beach.

 

Will Sparling said the ­Cadboro Bay location is a perfect spot to replicate what the couple have in their Moka House in Cook Street Village. That ­location is extremely popular with area ­residents as well as others ­visiting Beacon Hill Park or shopping on Cook Street. On most days, the patios are overflowing — ­living up to its official name Moka House Coffee + Community.

Shatterbox Coffee is moving into a new, smaller space within the Public Market; the new space is along Douglas St so it might have exterior access too (currently it is along a bank of windows)…

There’s a large banner at the downtown Doubletree Hotel saying that Starbucks will be opening soon.

It looks like the hotel also got a new paint job? Passed by this afternoon and noticed that.

Starbucks baristas at Douglas and Alpha streets in Victoria have settled a collective agreement with the international coffee giant.

https://www.vicnews....h-coffee-giant/

On June 29, United Steelworkers (USW) announced that workers at the drive-thru location unanimously ratified a three-year deal the union says protects against workplace violence and aggression, offers leave following domestic violence and calls for wage increases of up to $2.47 per hour based on years of service.



missing from the article that everyone wants to know - how much will they be paid? but of course not answered by the article. lame.

I guess that’s not unlike Farmer’s Insurance in the US.

How else is one supposed to make that so called ‘bulletproof’ coffee’?
