"I know our fans and other guests at TD Place will appreciate the fresh, artisan coffee aroma and rich flavor that Marley Coffee delivers, so we're very happy to welcome Marley to the team."
Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee, said, "Ottawa is one of my favorite cities. It was exciting to play my year of professional football for the Ottawa Rough Riders in the nation's capital, and I have great memories playing at Lansdowne Park (now TD Place). Since then, Ottawa's sports franchises have been close to my heart. To have our coffee served on the site where I played football is a dream come true."
Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee, added, "As an Ottawa native and long-time Rough Riders season ticket holder, I am pleased to have our brand at TD Place, and on a personal note, to once again support the team. Marley Coffee's new partnership with the OSEG gives us a huge presence in Canada's capital city, and coincides with the expansion of our brand in Canada, thanks to our relationship with Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee."
