Coffee News® is strategically located wherever people are eating, grabbing a cup of coffee, or waiting for service.  Look for us in locations throughout the local areas. Some of our locations are restaurants, delis, coffee houses, etc. The remaining 30% are distributed to places where people are known to wait or frequent regularly such as hair salons, doctors offices, dry cleaners, community & senior citizen centers, and town government offices. 

It is a free publication distributed primarily at restaurants or any other place where you might have some time to read while waiting. 


New issues are published weekly. For a current list of our distribution locations, please click on the DISTRIBUTION link here.

No. The Coffee News is exclusive to all our advertisers. Only one business per category can advertise with us at any given time. As a courtesy to all our restaurant and coffee shop distribution locations, we offer the protection that no business in the restaurant industry will be allowed to advertise in Coffee News®. Although most restaurants would love to have an ad, they are disallowed automatically. The reason — a Burger King ad in Coffee News®, for example, would have every McDonald’s refusing to carry Coffee News®. No restaurant would welcome their competitor’s efforts to take away their customers right inside their own premises, so they would naturally kick them out — and Coffee News® too.

Ads in Coffee News® are less expensive than other repetitive print media so that the small businessperson can easily afford to advertise. You can advertise in Coffee News® for a fraction of the cost of other media! Remember all ads in Coffee News® are “EXCLUSIVE”, meaning we only allow one type of business in each edition, allowing our advertisers to LOCK OUT their competition!
