In February this year, Countrywide, Australia’s largest Food Service Distributor Group, launched a brand new promotion, ‘Countrywide Café of the Year’. The competition created quite a buzz across the nation, giving away $52,000 worth of prizes to cafés.

With 14 weeks of the competition now coming to a close, Countrywide Food Service Distributors are ecstatic to announce the winners of the competition.

Once cafés registered, we received endless messages of adoration from happy, loyal customers when submitting their votes throughout the 8-week voting period.

Voters had the opportunity to win ‘Free Coffee for a Year’, an enticing prize, many would agree.

Cafés put up some tough competition with social media efforts and in-café promoting going strong!

Countrywide is delighted to congratulate the following winners:
