Marley Coffee , a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, announced that the Best Western hotel chain has named Marley Coffee a Best Western endorsed supplier of hotel coffee services.
Marley Coffee was an approved exhibitor at the Best Western North American Convention Products Showcase, held Oct. 10 to 12, 2012 at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. During the event, thousands of independent owners of Best Western hotels had the opportunity to learn about Marley Coffee and meet with co-founder, Rohan Marley.
"Best Western has been in business for 66 years with each hotel independently owned," said Rohan Marley, in prepared statement. "It was joyous having the chance to speak with so many owners, to have them experience Marley Coffee, and to see them understand the positive impact serving our coffee can have on their guests. Best Western is a great partner for Marley Coffee and we look forward to taking advantage of this opportunity."
As a Best Western endorsed supplier, Marley Coffee is offering a variety of in-room solutions, which include the new Marley Coffee Real Cup (compatible with most models of the popular Keurig brewing system), single-serve pods and the traditional four cups coffee service found in many hotel rooms. In addition, Marley Coffee showcased an array of other coffee service options, including specialty coffees, traditional coffees, single-serve lobby service, breakfast bar and branded foodservice.
"We're honored to have been certified as a Best Western Endorsed Supplier and were very pleased by the response we received from owners during our first Products Showcase," said Brent Toevs, CEO, Marley Coffee. "Best Western has more than 4,000 hotels around the world with more than 2,000 in North America, and a growing number of Best Western Plus and Best Western Premier hotels. This is a huge channel for us and we plan on putting substantial resources into growing this division."
