Maxwell House: Good to Its Last Drop
By Olivia Johnson
New York City has the Statue of Liberty, Chicago has Cloud Gate, aka “The Bean,” and St. Louis has the Gateway Arch. Houstonians have Maxwell House. In case you have never noticed this classic Houston landmark, it is visible from most any freeway, downtown building, and the Medical Center. Generation “Z” is only vaguely familiar with Maxwell House, but ask any parent or grandparent and they will describe it the same way: “The coffee house with the giant neon cup.”
