In the Food & Beverage Category: Green Goldfish #148 – Zynga

One of my favorite scenes in the legendary movie Pulp Fiction is about coffee. Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson sound off about the importance of good gourmet coffee. Let’s roll the tape:

Now while there’s a lot of good coffee in San Francisco, Blue Bottle is considered by many to be the best in town. It’s also kind of expensive.

But according to Business Insider, Zynga employees can get free coffee from Blue Bottle at their “dog house” headquarters in San Francisco.

Only one question remains a la Jules Winfield, “Are you treating your employees with the gourmet variety of benefits or the freeze dried sh*t?”

Today’s Lagniappe (a little something extra for good measure) – Here’s YouTube video providing a little background on Blue Bottle:

The example in the post was taken from the Green Goldfish Project. The Project is a quest to find 1,001 examples of marketing lagniappe for employees. Green goldfish are the little signature extras given to employees. They help differentiate a company, reinforce culture, increase retention and drive positive WoM. The book, “What’s Your Green Goldfish?” will be published on March 29, 2013.
