Milwaukee will give you fresh cookies and Coffee. The Wifi didn't work right, but they had a pair of laptops for customer to use.

And soon they should have some RC smarts to race around the showroom

Smart Center Edison (in Edison New Jersey) has a service center that handles all the cars that Ray Catena sells. Their service center has free soda, juice or water. They have a tv room. They have free internet access. They have a reading room away from the tv. They have a pool table. They have a guy shining shoes. IMO; Ray Catena set the 'gold standard' for service centers.

Birmingham waiting area is mixed in with the Mercedes dealer so you get a choice flavors for the Keurig coffee/tea/hot chocolate machine. Juices, sodas, water, muffins, cookies etc. VERY nice! While not the fanciest dealership I have been to, it is up there.

NYC (Manhattan)'s Smart Center is joined with the huge Mercedes dealership, so it has all of the perks that come from Mercedes, like waiting rooms, an espresso/hot choco machine, some croissants, newspapers, and so on. It's a great facility. The Smart part of the building is well-appointed, too, and I always go there to chat with my friends.
