“Congratulations ALL of you on receiving recognition for your great little ‘rag’ Coffee News Weekly in the Canadian Geographic magazine! It is well deserved, as I have always looked on it as a Canadian product like Poutine, Donairs, Green Onion Cakes and more. The thing my eyes search for in and A&W or McDonalds is not the big menu, but a clean copy of the Coffee News to grab. And, yes, I’ll grab a copy with spills if that’s the only one left. Cheers!!
Coffee News has been our most cost-effective form of advertising to date

We really appreciate it.
“I just wanted to say thank you for supplying us with the Coffee News. My daughter and I love going for coffee and reading the stories and horoscopes to each other as well as quizzing each other with the trivia. We really appreciate it.
Customer Service is Excellent
“Sam, AWESOME!!!!! I am so glad I am working with YOU!!! Prompt and efficient!!! Making things happen!!!
“At our open house last night, five people (out of 39) said they had come because of the ad in Coffee News. That’s pretty good, as we know it means that the ad created awareness in many people who didn’t come…but might when they see one of our other promotions.
I wanted to personally Thank You for publishing our Movie Event in the What’s Up section in your Coffee News Edition this week. Your newspaper’s generosity to help out Non Profit Organizations advertise their events for free is Commendable and Appreciated. I wish you even much more success with your newspaper in the very near future. I truly believe it is already a success in so many ways.
“Hi Walter, Thank you so much for keeping us in the loop. Our recent Choir Christmas Concert Ad was a total success in my opinion. As you know, I have been working with you and Sam for a few years now and we have been really happy with the advertising results.”
