The History of Coffee News
The history of Coffee News history begins with Jean Daum. The idea came to Jean while sitting in a restaurant waiting for her meal. With nothing to read but the back of a sugar packet, the idea struck her! What a great opportunity to provide light reading material for patrons of restaurants, while helping community businesses market themselves where it matters most, locally.
Jean’s background in advertising helped her design a restaurant publication that’s fun and entertaining. After many months of research, Jean packed Coffee News® with uplifting and humorous stories, facts, trivia, horoscopes, local event listings and most importantly, local small and medium-

Who is this Coffee News Guy?
He doesn’t have a name—he’s just the Coffee News Guy—but you know him. His cheerful, waving self is in the front of the crowd at the top of every edition of every Coffee News, no matter the city, country, or language. He looks good in tan. He’s usually hidden somewhere else in the paper, and if you find him, you might win a prize pack from your local publisher. The cartoon version of the Coffee News Guy represents what Coffee News always has been about: he’s cheerful, he’s friendly, he’s funny.
He offers a break from a busy lifestyle and negative news, giving readers the brief distraction of interesting tidbits, quotes, jokes, and uplifting predictions about their own lives. The Coffee News Guy knows all this. That’s why he’s smiling and waving. Welcome to the family. Enjoy.

Dear Walter, Sam and all at your office.
“Just a quick note to let you know that we have just completed another very successful and rewarding season of song. Our non-profit group is now 113 years old. On behalf of our director, accompanist, and all of my fellow choristers, we applaud your efforts and truly appreciate the help that you have provided us this past season with our advertising. I will meet with our choir board tomorrow, and present my suggestions that we go with you again for upcoming concerts. I really appreciated the fact that you also added our gig to the What’s Happening column.
Have a great summer, y’all ! Sincerely,”

I think its an awesome opportunity for your Restaurant partners to promote their establishments in your Deals and Coupons section. It’s a great opportunity for the regular readers to get in on some deals as well and who doesn’t love a deal?? I had an opportunity to deal with Coffee News 5 or 6 years ago when I worked at the Christmas Bureau.
I was so impressed with the willingness to support the community in so many ways. I spread the word for sure!!!.
Its so awesome how it has grown over the years. I love the information and jokes and facts.
