They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so we are duely flattered that the big boys over at Starbuck's are opening up their own shipping container coffee shop. While we surely beat Starbuck's to the punch, it's likely that we weren't the first to get a full time coffee shop open in a repurposed shipping container. While we may not have been the first, we sure blazed a trail of good design, and pushed the envelope of shipping container coffee-shop-dom! Either way we'll take the flatteryand the imitation!

The good folks over at State Impact/NPR picked up on the story and gave us a nice shoutout for all three of our shipping container based projects to date. I'm sure they'll be happy to know that there are more projects like that on the boards. Info on those projects to drop soon.
