US baristas have been attracting more customers following a decision of the female shop owner to employ s*xy women who wear bikini dress that shows off their amazing curves in Washington.
Sun UK revealed that the uniform sees the women don bikinis or underwear with some choosing to simply have colourful coverings over their nipples. However, the idea has been kicked against by the city councillor who argued that the women are being exploited.
Bikini Beans Espresso is owned by entrepreneur Carlie Jo and has seen huge success – possibly due to the dress code. Ratings have soared on Yelp and customers regularly leave comments about the staff online.
On the website she writes about the branch in Arizona: “As the first bikini barista shop in Arizona, we want to empower women to be, and feel good about, themselves.
“Women everywhere have the right to vote, to be gay, to be successful community leaders and business owners, or even run for president!
“We have the right to work with grace, confidence and dignity, regardless if it’s in a business suit, scrubs, or a bikini.”
A large number of the clientele do appear to be men, but not all men in the local area have been won over by the uniform choice. City councillor Mike Fagan tried to bring in limitations on the stands as he argued it promotes the exploitation of women.
While appearing on a YouTube video for Zagat he said: “It should be all about the coffee and not about the body.
“Having frequented at least one time in each of these shops, just to see what the consumer is subjected to, we’re talking about three stickers strategically placed – and i’ll leave it up to everybody else’s imagination as to where those stickers are placed.
“I don’t want to pound on the ‘it’s for the children’ argument, but that is what it’s all about.”
