Date: Daily from Monday, September 29, 2014 through Friday, October 31, 2014 (Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.)

Cost: FREE
Register/Info: Call your favorite Chick-fil-A restaurant for more details and to confirm their participation.

What’s Doing?
In celebration of International Coffee Day on Sept. 29, Tampa Bay Chick-fil-A restaurants will hold a month-long giveaway of its new specialty-grade THRIVE Farmers Coffee. Beginning Monday, September 29 (International Coffee Day) through October 31, customers who visit a Tampa Bay area Chick-fil-A restaurant between 6:30-10:30 a.m. will receive a FREE small hot coffee, and those visiting between 2-5 p.m. will receive a FREE medium iced coffee.

NOTE: This offer is valid in the restaurant and drive-thru at participating Tampa Bay restaurants only, with a limit of one offer per customer per day.

Chick-fil-A® is partnering with THRIVE Farmers™ Coffee to introduce the QSR industry’s first-ever specialty-grade coffee. The coffee was created specifically for the chain and is now available in restaurants nationwide. The sale of each cup of coffee provides direct revenue to THRIVE Farmers network of family farmers in Central America, allowing them to earn up to 10 times more than farmers earn in traditional revenue models.

Thrive Farmers Coffee Hot
This special offer promotes the chain’s new THRIVE Farmers’ blend coffee, unique to Chick-fil-A as it has been crafted with characteristics and flavors that complement the chain’s breakfast menu as well as allows it to stand alone as a premium cup of coffee throughout the day. The hand-picked, medium roast coffee offers a rich balance of flavors not typically seen in the quick service industry, including notes of caramel and cocoa with a light citrus finish. The proprietary coffee blend starts at $1.59.

Thrive Farmers Coffee Iced
Chick-fil-A’s new iced coffee is handcrafted daily and prepared with an exclusive blend of THRIVE Farmers’ cold-brewed, specialty coffee beans and 2% percent milk, sweetened with pure cane syrup and served over ice.

About THRIVE Farmers Coffee
THRIVE Farmers farmer-direct platform includes a unique revenue sharing model that stabilizes the price paid to farmers year over year. THRIVE Farmers signs contracts with actual farmers and farmer groups to supply Chick-fil-A coffee, and the farmers’ payment for the sale of their coffee is not tied to the volatile commodity markets. Instead farmers maintain an economic interest in their coffee from the time it leaves the farm until Chick-fil-A purchases it from THRIVE Farmers. By eliminating all non-essential layers in the supply chain, this model creates economic sustainability for farmers because they can earn more money, up to 10 times more than through traditional models, which allows them to reinvest in their communities and crops.

Learn more about Chick-fil-A’s partnership with THRIVE Farmers Coffee, its new coffee menu additions, and the farmers who are impacted by this partnership.
