AVT, Inc. recently announced that it is giving away a free Marley Coffee Automated Store and a free trip to Jamaica.
The contest is called "Win a Store, Win a Trip" because the winner not only receives a free Marley Coffee Automated Store, but also will receive a free trip to Jamaica, where they will learn about the heritage of the coffee business, sustainability and organic methods on the Marley Family Farm.
Rohan Marley, son of legendary musician Bob Marley, said in a prepared statement, "It was always my father's dream to return to farming one day." Now, with Marley Coffee, he has fulfilled that dream. From the family's 52-acre private estate sitting atop the Blue Mountains in Chepstowe, Jamaica - long revered as the region with the world's most desirable coffee beans – the dream of Marley Coffee comes alive.
AVT is an exclusive partner to Marley Coffee, and has designed and manufactured an unique, upscale, automated coffee kiosk, which provides freshly ground and brewed coffees at a touch of a button. The Marley Automated Cafes provide entrepreneurs a low-cost, turnkey business that can start returning profits immediately, according to AVT.
"The Marley Automated Cafes are the way of the future," according to Shannon Illingworth, AVT founder and chairman. "Why put up a large retail store like Starbucks - with all the associated overhead – when you can produce a better tasting cup of all-natural Marley gourmet coffee, espresso or cappuccino, and place these self-service cafes virtually anywhere? We can put a beautiful Marley Coffee Automated Cafe almost everywhere that people congregate - even in places that could never hold a Starbucks, like office and apartment buildings, college campuses, and hotel lobbies, to name a few."
To help one lucky entrepreneur, AVT is giving away an automated Marley Coffee Cafe as well as a free trip to Jamaica, which will include a visit the Marley family farm. "We want the owner of this Marley Coffee Automated Cafe to learn about the history of Marley Coffee, their approach to sustainability, and the wonderful, organic methods used to grow this gourmet coffee," Illingworth said.
To enter the contest, entrants must "Like us" on the AVT Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AVTInc), then visit www.marleycoffeebusiness.com/contest and write a short essay (200 words or less) about why they think they should be awarded the free Marley Coffee Kiosk. Entrants should write a bit about themselves, describe where they would place the automated cafe, and note how they feel they could champion sustainability in their community with the Marley Coffee Automated Cafe. Winner will be selected based on the quality and content of their essay.
The winner will receive a free Marley Coffee Automated Store, and an all-expenses paid trip to Jamaica. Contest runs from April 15 to July 1, 2013. All entries must be received by close of business July 1.
