Business In Newfoundland

newfoundland flagI’m headed to St. John’s, Newfoundland today for a business trip. My employer is a system integrator of an RFID proposal and I’m the Technical Architect; there’s a company in Newfoundland who specializes in RFID solutions, whom we may partner with.

Phillip’s picking me up at the airport. His big plans for me:

Roll Up the Rim, Again

It’s Roll Up The Rim To Win time again at Tim Hortons.

roll up the win to win

Their sales sky-rocket during this promotion, where customers have to roll up the rim of their beverage cup to reveal if they won anything, which includes a car, donuts, muffins, coffees, and for the first time: a boat!

I don’t drink as much of their coffee as I used to; I won’t be keeping track of my wins and losses.

My wife works at Tim Hortons now, so officially, I’m not allowed to play. If I win a boat I’ll have to trust a friend to claim the prize for me.

Roll Up The Rim A Bit Easier

The RimrollerRimroller™:

This product makes it easy to check for prize statements hidden under the rims of paper coffee cups in various contests… it slices the cup rim twice when pushed down, and an internal lip unrolls the paper edge when it’s pulled up.

$2.50 at Lee Valley Tools for something you may use for two months of the year, if you drink Tim Hortons‘ coffee, which I rarely do now; however, it may save some frustration when trying to bend over the edge of those cups. I wonder if it will sell.
