Sheetz launches new Cold Brew coffee offerings on National Coffee Day, September 29, 2016

ALTOONA, Pa., 2016-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Sheetz, one of America’s fastest-growing family-owned and operated convenience retailers, is proud to announce the launch of its Cold Brew coffee offerings, available in all stores on National Coffee Day, September 29, 2016. The launch marks a major advancement in the convenience store industry’s coffee portfolio, allowing Sheetz Freakz to enjoy the elevated quality of Cold Brew at any Sheetz store.

“Cold Brew is, without a doubt, the best way to make cold coffee, because the flavors have a chance to infuse rather than burn,” says Matt Gray, Coffee Concepts Manager for Sheetz. “Sheetz’s method takes no shortcuts, nor attempts to cheapen the product in any way, and the result is a delicious flavor profile accessible to all coffee drinkers and rivaling any Cold Brew experience out there.”

Sheetz’s Cold Brew starts with fresh coffee ground in-house and later infused in cold water for 10 hours to ensure the balanced blend of sweet and bitter. The patient process results in a naturally smooth and sweet flavor with less acidity.

“This product is the real deal and sure to disrupt the convenience category’s coffee offerings as we know it, just like Sheetz,” says Ryan Sheetz, Director of Brand Strategy for Sheetz. “With millennials drinking more specialty coffee than any other generation out there, we hope to fill more of their cups and also introduce other coffee drinkers to Cold Brew.”

In true Sheetz fashion, the culinary team’s made-to-order approach (MTO) is extended to Cold Brew, with every cup tailored and hand-poured directly for the customer. Cold Brew pairs perfectly with Sheetz’s hot breakfast items, offering a refreshing temperature balance and eliminating the need to wait for coffee to cool before indulging.

In celebration of National Coffee Day on September 29, 2016, Sheetz will offer one free small Cold Brew while supplies last to all customers who show their My Sheetz Card, a loyalty card that offers in-store specials, exclusive perks and 3¢ off every gallon of gasoline.

CANTON, MA, 2016-Sep-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — National Coffee Day is Thursday, September 29, and Dunkin’ Donuts will hail the holiday by raising a cup to its loyal guests with a coffee offer in celebration of the brand’s 66-year history of keeping people running with great coffee each and every day. Dunkin’ Donuts today (September 22, 2016) announced that on National Coffee Day, guests can enjoy any medium-sized cup of the brand’s signature hot coffee for the special price of 66 cents at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide.

According to Chris Fuqua, Senior Vice President, Dunkin’ Donuts Brand Marketing, Global Consumer Insights & Product Innovation, “Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee heritage, and the love people have for our coffee, goes back 66 years to 1950, something no other leading restaurant brand can match. Since then, our coffee has remained an important part of millions of guests’ daily lives, helping busy people start their morning and keep on running any time of day or night. For National Coffee Day in 2016, we say cheers to 66 years by making Dunkin’ Donuts’ signature hot coffee available on September 29 for only 66 cents for a medium-sized cup.”

Dunkin’ Donuts is also helping fans both show and share their love of coffee by offering a one-day-only Snapchat Geofilter on National Coffee Day. The fun design celebrates the day, and can be unlocked at any of Dunkin’ Donuts’ U.S. locations on September 29 only.

According to the NPD Group / CREST, Dunkin’ Donuts is a leader in the hot and iced coffee categories in the U.S. The company sells more than 1.9 billion cups of hot and iced coffee globally ever year. In addition to the brand’s signature hot and iced Original Blend Coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts offers Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Dark Roast, which uses a unique blending and roasting process to create a bold flavor and smooth finish without the bitterness typically associated with most dark roast coffees. Dunkin’ Donuts also offers a full lineup of espresso beverages, including cappuccino, espresso, hot and iced lattes, and hot and iced macchiato.

Additionally, Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide now offer Cold Brew coffee, prepared by steeping a special blend of coffee in cold water over an extended period of time to extract a uniquely distinctive flavor from the beans. The longer brewing process provides a rich, smooth coffee with an inherently sweeter flavor reminiscent of dark chocolate. Cold Brew coffee is crafted by hand in Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in small batches and served each day while supplies last.

National Coffee Day: Staples survey reveals office workers take their reliance on coffee to the extreme

FRAMINGHAM, Mass, 2016-Sep-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Some office workers take their reliance on coffee to the extreme. In fact, nearly one-third of employees said they would rather streak naked through the main street of their town than give up coffee for a year, according to a Staples survey released in advance of National Coffee Day, celebrated on September 29.

Not only would some shed their clothes for coffee, more than half of those polled also confessed they would give up sweets over coffee forever. Coffee even rivals our reliance on technology, as a quarter of employees said they would go without their smartphone for eternity if that meant they could keep coffee. Not even annual vacation time is safe – as 24 percent would relinquish their yearly time off in favor of access to coffee.

The survey revealed that, on average, employees consume two cups of coffee each day. It makes sense, then, that according to the Staples Business Advantage Workplace Index, three quarters of those polled wished that employers provided free coffee and snacks.

“Drinking coffee is engrained in the daily routine of the U.S. workforce – 59 percent drink at least two cups daily – and many consider it essential for them to do their work at a high level,” said Kerry Anne Carter, vice president, Staples Business Advantage, which offers customers a robust coffee lease program that includes brewers at no extra charge, brewer maintenance and access to a team of field experts. “Taking the initiative to provide free coffee options and a welcoming breakroom can go a long way toward keeping employees happy and productive.”

According to the coffee survey, 35 percent of employees need at least one cup to feel productive or alert during the day; otherwise, it’s not pretty. When employees were asked which tasks they can’t handle before their first cup of the day, top answers included thinking, talking to anyone and commuting to work.
