SPoT Coffee Provides Update on Key Initiatives

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 6, 2017) - SPOT COFFEE (CANADA) LTD. (TSX VENTURE:SPP) ("SPoT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has launched its new website complete with cafe and catering menus, updated corporate and franchise locations and contact information, and a new integrated coffee and merchandise ecommerce ordering system. The Company's new website is designed to provide SPoT with a strong online platform for its social media campaigns, customer interaction programs and retail sales.

"We are delighted with the results that our online development and social media teams have delivered," said Anton Ayoub, President of SPoT Coffee. "We know how important a strong online presence is to our communities, our franchisees, our investors and, most importantly, our customers. Providing people with a means to purchase our gift cards and signature coffee blends online has been a priority of ours, and we are very pleased with its launch."

Furthermore, the Company has made an important move regarding its menu by adding gluten-free meals including sandwiches and pizzas. Health conscious and handcrafted gluten-free entrees have been requested by some of SPoT's customers, and the Company's executive chef has perfected gluten-free versions of his kitchen's most popular dishes. Customers can now enjoy the final products in all SPoT cafe locations.
