Summer Days and Goodbye Sarah!

When the weather has been as nice as it has been, time really flies by. It is hard to believe that we are almost coming to the end of August and all the relieved parents are finally looking at the ‘soon-to-be-opened’ school gates. Here at the Bulb, we have also been busy over summer in trying to make our customer experience even better. Some highlights include:

  • We just celebrated our 1 year anniversary on 24th Jul. Seems like yesterday when Joe Palma  stepped into Red Bulb a year ago at 7 am and order our first ever latte. Many drinks and customers later, we are happy to see Joe and many other customers who have become our regulars. Thanks again for your support and we could not have ask for better customers in our first year.
  • On top of delivering our signature espresso-based drinks, we have also added new food items like iced summer apple tea, sandwiches, and wraps. Together with our usual empanadas and tasty treats, we have the perfect complement to your coffee and tea.
  • We have added a new air-conditioner unit to help with those hot summer days. It almost feel like winter when we turn up the new AC.
  • We continued to add new merchandize in the store. Our summer collection is a good source for little gifts or your daily usage, and they  include items like fun bags and pouches, bamboo cups and T-shirts, etc.

The end of summer also heralds the departure of Sarah Steiner from the Red Bulb team this coming Saturday. The coffee geeks in the coffee industry often talks about how wonderful and special their coffee are, but what we normally miss out is the people behind the counter. I am not talking about the rockstar baristas who can pull the most tasty espresso and draw the best latte art. Rather it is the common people who has abundance of energy, passion, and dedication to their role, who always gives the best experience to our customers. Sarah has those qualities and more, and she has been integral to our success in our first year. She has also helped to train a few of our new team members, some whom you have seen in recent weeks. With your support, we will continue to serve up the kind of experience you have come to expect from us in our second year.

Sarah – all the best in your next chapter of your life!  You have been and always will be a special part of the Red Bulb Family.
