Going topless a way to make a coffee shop a hit

The economy is real bad, businesses are not getting enough customers. You want to find a way to attract repeat customers to a coffee shop, so what should you do ? Why not play to the temptation of every human being for the human flesh, and if you can get the local authorities to agree to it, there would not be anything wrong. And so did Donald Crabtree, who visualized having a new coffee shop with plenty of customers, and who went ahead and opened Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine, where the waiters and waitresses serve their customers topless. You can just imagine, you go inside and a waiter or waitress comes and serves you, with their upper body totally bare (link):

In a town with fewer than 4,500 residents, the topless coffee shop is booming with business. Paul Crabtree, the owner's brother, describes business so far as "fantastic." "It's just been crowds mobbing in," he said. Donald Crabtree faced initial opposition to his plan, but he won the right to go ahead in a planning board hearing last week. Many local residents were irate over the idea of combining coffee and nudity. Crabtree, however, saw a profitable business venture.
The flood of job applications -- more than 150 -- for Grand View Topless Coffee Shop reflected the rough job market. Crabtree hired 10 women and five men under stringent requirements, including friendliness and, what he considered most important, that the wait staff "treat everyone equally." Of the 15 selected, most had been laid off from other jobs in the past few months.

Interesting, but there is a very high chance that people will copy this idea all over (subject to the local council approving such a special coffee shop).
