Italian-style Starbucks

One very offline busi­ness idea came into my mind: You all know Star­bucks. Star­bucks entered a over­crowd­ed mar­ket (you got your cof­fee near­ly every­where) with a com­mod­i­ty prod­uct (cof­fee).

Difficult customers trigger service quality

Return­ing from a relax­ing wellness-weekend in Aus­tria I am still won­der­ing about the com­plaints of the hotel owner (aged about 40) this morn­ing dur­ing break­fast: “In ear­li­er days our guests were a lot more easy going. No com­plaints about din­ners, the kind of music played at cer­e­mo­ni­al occa­sions, etc. Nowa­days most of them dis­like this and that, want to change the menues and do not return for hol­i­days if they object­ed to the
