NEW ORLEANS (Aug. 19, 2015) – The New Orleans Saints and Pelicans announced today that Community© coffee has been named the Official Coffee of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans.
In its first appearance as the Official Coffee of the New Orleans Saints, Community® coffee was featured as a part of the unveiling of Centerplate’s new menu items for the upcoming Saints season in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
“With 96 years in business, Community Coffee Company has demonstrated its success as a family-run business, as well as a community leader through its many programs that give back to local schools and military members,” said Saints and Pelicans Owner Tom Benson. “We are thrilled to partner with Community Coffee and look forward to collaborating on game and fan experience elements with them.”
“Pairing the rich, smooth flavor of Community® coffee with an organization steeped in the same tradition and heritage that we built our fourth-generation, family-owned business, just makes sense,” said David Belanger, President and CEO of Community Coffee Company. “We’re excited to showcase our delicious 100% Arabica coffees to our extended Saints and Pelicans family.”
Community Coffee will be the presenting sponsor of the New Orleans Saints Morning Break on NewOrleansSaints.com, a daily post on the site the recaps Saints and NFL news, including video, online and social media coverage. Additionally, Community Coffee will give away a prize to one lucky Saints fan who shares a selfie featuring Saints gear and Community® coffee. Fans should follow the Saints on Twitter and Facebook for more details on this contest.
A long-standing beloved brand of coffee and tea, Community Coffee Company is made with only 100% select Arabica coffee beans—the best quality beans available. Each of Community Coffee Company's high-quality coffees has rich flavor, a delicate aroma and a smooth, satisfying finish.
The Pelicans and Community Coffee will host an on-court coffee-themed promotion throughout the season where fans will compete for a chance to win prizes at Pelicans home games. Additionally, Community Coffee will be featured in signage throughout the 100-level concourse of the Smoothie King Center, as well as the mega boards on the South and Southwest sides of the Smoothie King Center.
Community coffee is available for purchase on their website and at grocery stores throughout the Southeast region of the United States. For more information, please visit CommunityCoffee.com.
