A cool cup of coffee!

Passion Fruit Green Tea Smoothie

So today was extremely hot outside and on my way to pick up a friend from the airport I decided to have a work meeting at Caribou in Maple Grove. While there, I overheard a gentleman talking to the manager regarding a vehicle needing a jump start. James to the rescue?

I have always been one of those people willing to help in pretty much any situation. One of my favorite movies is Pay It Forward for the story. The idea of people helping people is great, but people do not seem to be catching on.

So, I offered jumper cables even though I knew that my car would be no match for the large truck that I am trying to start. The manager was willing to offer her new jeep to get this vehicle going. Bringing the jeep over, we realized that this was not going to be an easy task and decided to use my Ford Taurus instead.

After trying to get this vehicle started using a 2007  Ford Taurus we decided that this was not going to work and I brought him to a mechanic down the road. After about a half hour to 45 minutes, we realized that this was not going to happen and I returned to Caribou.

Getting back to the task at hand, the manager came over to us and offered to buy me a drink. As normal, I declined but was asked again. Minnesota nice says that you accept an offer after declining twice… so I did. She had made me a Passion Fruit Green Tea Smoothie. This was a really nice gesture of thanks to her customers, and also showed that she cared for her customers.

The smoothie hit the spot and made me smile. I definitely would recommend this Caribou location to others! Thanks for the excellent customer service experience!
