Coffee News Metro
Readers and Contest

Proven advertising techniques from over 26 years of global franchised marketing experience.


Each week Coffee News Metro receives dozens of entries into our Coffee News Contest. Your ad gets noticed because our readers are inspired to read through all the ads in order to find the little Coffee News Man and enter the contest.  Readers send in entry forms each week for a chance to be the monthly winner.
