Ricker’s to be ‘Official Coffee’ of ‘The Bob & Tom Show’

Indianapolis, IN – Beginning first quarter of 2014 and reprising fourth quarter of 2014, Ricker’s Convenience Stores will provide its locally roasted gourmet coffee to morning radio hosts Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold and the rest of the gang as The Official Coffee of “The Bob & Tom Show.”

“Having an Official Coffee on the show is definitely a first, and we’re happy it’s a great-tasting, hometown brew that’s accessible to our local listeners,” said Griswold.

In addition to drinking Ricker’s locally roasted coffee on-air each morning, Bob & Tom will also enjoy a live in-studio tasting of a different coffee blend each Friday from 10-10:20 a.m. ET on Q95 in Indianapolis. Flavors will include 100% Colombian, House Blend Light Roast, Red Eye Blend, Dark Roast and Decaf – all brewed using Ricker’s new reverse osmosis water filtration system.

“No more stale coffee for me! I’m looking forward to enjoying a fresh Ricker’s cup every morning,” said Kevoian.

During the first quarter of 2014, Ricker’s customers will enjoy their coffee at a special 95¢ price in a Bob & Tom limited edition cup. Souvenir Bob & Tom travel coffee cups will also be available for purchase. As always, customers can have their coffee any way they want it with abundant flavorings, creamers and sweeteners.

“Growing up in Indiana, I have always enjoyed listening to ‘The Bob & Tom Show,’ and I am thrilled Ricker’s has the opportunity to partner with such an iconic local program,” said Ricker’s President and CEO Quinn Ricker. “It’s the perfect partnership. Both Ricker’s and ‘The Bob & Tom Show’ are home grown.”

Tune into “The Bob & Tom Show” every morning from 6-10 a.m. ET and stop into your local Ricker’s for a 95¢ cup of coffee during the first quarter of 2014. Also, be sure to “Like” Ricker’s Rewards and The Bob & Tom Show on Facebook.
