"Joe, my favorite coffee shop in New York, recently expanded and opened up a new branch just down the street from me. Who is expanding in this economy? That place is always humming. Joe puts out a personal newsletter written by the owner, conducts a weekly running club, and holds coffee-making classes—not to mention having a tasty brew. That simple combination has loyalists coming back economic downturn or no economic downturn."
