Coffee News was started by Jean Daum, in the small town of Charleswood in Manitoba, Canada. Wanting to have a profitable news publication offering affordable ad space that would help local businesses with exposure to potential customers, Jean saw her idea as a win-win. She did away with the tradition of delivering to people’s homes, instead focusing on keeping area restaurants stocked with the latest edition. She began franchising Coffee News outlets in 2004 and there are now almost 950 Coffee News units in the U.S. and internationally.
