This coffee chain developed in Seattle with the idea that baristas wearing less clothing attracts more customers. The story goes that one hot summer day an employee asked to wear a bikini top to work. This proved that sex does sell, and developed into a regular bikini-themed day. Eventually, the baristas were wearing sexy costumes everyday including military and school girl outfits. The kiosks are covered in black and white spots, but they definitely aren't the attention-grabber. The coffee is, well, hot. There are now many Cowgirls locations in the US, Australia, Europe, and Canada.
