Providing customer service that brings people back to your store or Web site isn’t rocket science or doesn’t have to cost you anything – only motivation and desire.

I recently stopped at the Bentley’s Coffee on the corner of Charleston & I-15 for a small jolt of caffeine after a pretty intense morning. Imagine my surprise when one of the baristas bounded out of the coffee drive-thru to get my order…instead of waiting for me to reach the window or me waiting for the two cars ahead to pull away. With a “Hi there, what can I getcha?” and a quick clarification that their $1.50 coffee is a 16-ounce Americano (not drip), he made me feel as if he was happy to see me…and to serve me.

Not only did they get a 50-cent tip for a buck-fifty drink (more than double the standard 15% tipping rate), they’ve got a new customer.
