I shared this image on Facebook a couple of years ago, but it's too good not to share here. I have fond memories of the creative people I worked with throughout my time at Starbucks. This picture is probably 1998 from a Mountain South conference. The field marketing staff working under the great guidance of Lisa Denney Compton put on the The Dating Game. Nancy Kane Asmus was likely a cappuccino - looking for a pastry love connection.
Did I win her affection as a maple cinnamon scone? Did Heywood McGuffee steal her heart as a cheese danish? Or did Bridget Barrett captivate her as a blueberry muffin? I don't remember who won, likely all of us...but this certainly brings back sweet memories...
OMG!!! You are right! This is too good to not share!! Love this so much!
Marla... this was fun. I remember we had a big push to get stores to promote adding a pastry to their beverage order. (All about the UPTs and Avg. Tix!!!) You’re right, I think you all won a “perfect pairing” date with Latte Nancy.
Heywood, as a croissant or cheese danish, had the best line of the show. Latte Nancy asked the pastry-testants, “What’s your biggest peeve?” Croissant Heywood improv’d a killer line, “I hate it when people try to butter me up.” Too good! -- johnmoore
Thanks for sharing, Marla and John! So many wonderful memories!
