$1 million worth of support.

Harris coffee has launched the Harris Cafe Recovery Project – a new scheme for Australian cafe owners nationwide to apply for a share in $1 million worth of support that will assist them in rebuilding, as they return to serving their local communities. Up to 25 cafe owners are eligible to receive a share of the $1 million worth of support.

As part of the Harris Cafe Recovery Project, each successful cafe owner will receive free coffee, based on their current business needs, a free on-loan coffee machine, plus servicing, and free takeaway cups courtesy of Biopak for one year. Additionally, the Harris team will provide full technical support, barista training and up to $5,000 in marketing support to enable cafe owners to connect with their local communities, as well as providing them with the platform to take advantage of tourism initiatives in their local area.

Naturally, there are terms and conditions that apply. Among other things, if you are successful in your application, you will agree to use Harris coffee as your supplier for a two year period beyond the initial 12 month support package period.

All the details, including the full terms and conditions, can be found at harriscoffee.com.au.
