CEO Jacob Jaber has made sure the personal touch is maintained through fast growth – 14 current locations – caffeinating artists, designers, engineers and everyday people. Bay Area Tech influencer, Hunter Walk, recently had the chance to ask Jacob a few questions about Philz growth and the role of technology.
What a surprise and an honor to find this on the web. Thanks for the love Lewla. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
This morning, a regular customer paid for his coffee, pastry, AND a $20 gift card. When the transaction was complete, he leaned in and quietly requested that I use the gift card to pay for everyone’s coffee that was in line behind him. He walked away quickly and quietly, with a look contentment, a trace of excitement, and glowing good energy. He was “paying it forward” so to speak.As I rung up the coffees that the lovely guests of Philz had ordered behind him there was a mix of confusion, disbelief, and delight.Thank you to the special anonymous customer that believes in bettering someone else’s day. We like your style.
