Write the phrases that you will hear.
1. Curtis: One company that I really admire is one that is from near where I grew up, COSCO. Many people know them for their brand, Kirkland Signature. They’re from Kirkland, Washington close to Seattle and one of the reasons I really like them is because they treat their employees really well. And there are that don’t compensate their employees very well, they don’t take care of them but there’s research and data now that shows that COSCO has been getting benefits for taking care of their employees.
2. Curtis: Right. I think it’s also a very comfortable brand for customers because in Seattle, Seattleites don’t really drink Starbucks unless they’re in a hurry.
3. Spencer: One company that I love is another company that sells coffee called Port City Dover and they have branded themselves as being especially fairganic, so like they treat not only their employees well but they also try to get beans that have been sold at a good price for the farmers. So people will get a sense of, like doing good for like the world when they like buy a cup of coffee.
