A Tale of Two Mermaids


Arranging a meeting...
Jorn: See you at the station coffee shop. The one with the mermaid.
Michael: Which mermaid? There are two shops with mermaid signs.
Jorn: The mermaid with the wheat stalk.
Michael: Not the mermaid with two tails?
Jorn: Nope. The wheat stalk one has better coffee and much better food.
The first Starbucks opened in 1971, the first Little Mermaid in 1972.
The mermaid logos are both fetching but many people think like Jorn that the Danish wheat stalk one-tail bakery beats the U.S. two-tail coffee chain on taste and cost.
