Dennis Agalli has announced a new promotion to provide free coffee and free resources to students, no purchase necessary. This offer is valid for all new and existing customers who are students and visit Old Country Coffee through September 30, 2022.
MANHATTAN, N.Y., Aug. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Dennis Agalli, the owner of Old Country Coffee, announced that he will help students with free coffee and resources as the back to school season begins. With inflation rising, prices on consumer staples are up across the board. The economic changes have meant that the pressure on students who are struggling to make ends meet financially while getting an education is at an all-time high. Agalli says that now his coffee shop will become a place where students can go for free coffee and a place to study.
Agalli, a restaurateur and real estate entrepreneur, has provided free coffee at his coffee shop, Old Country Coffee, located 455 West 34th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues in Hudson Yards, as a means to give back to the community. This is not the first time that Agalli has done community outreach at Old Country Coffee. During the early-days of the pandemic, he provided coffee and free dessert to NYC’s first-responders to thank them for their service.
"The job market uncertainty from the pandemic coupled with skyrocketing rents and inflation has made this time very stressful for students economically," said Agalli. "I’m happy to be in a position where I can do something to help out the young people that we serve. If we can just give students a quiet place to study or take a break, they can come between classes or on weekends."
As students prepare to head back to school for the 2022-2023 school year, it is important for them to know that they have resources they can turn to, added Agalli. Which is why the promotion also gives students access to a number of free resources to assist them this school year.
This latest promotion builds on the success of Old Country Coffee’s reputation as a fast-casual coffee experience with a mission to give back for the residents of the community who have supported them. Agalli has made issues related to serving the community and affordable housing a priority since the pandemic upended his NYC restaurant business along with highlighting the economic insecurity that some students face.
The free coffee promotion is redeemable in-store at Old Country Coffee until August 31st, while supplies last. Students only have to present a student ID in order to claim a free coffee. For more information about bus or subway directions to Old Country Coffee or the menu, visit their website.
