One chosen “Reddi-wip Everyday Barista” will serve coffee throughout New York City
It’s the morning after Daylight Saving Time and let’s face it – we all need some motivation when jumping back into the work week, especially on Mondays. That’s why Reddi-wip is announcing its first-ever search for the Reddi-wip Everyday Barista who will be awarded $15,000* to perform one simple duty – showcase Reddi-wip’s new Barista Series of products by swooshing them into the coffee cups of New Yorkers on a TBD date within the next year (subject to change).
Reddi-wip is on a mission to give New Yorkers a morning that’s a whole lot sweeter and energetic by delivering the coffee shop experience, without any of the coffee shop lines. No real barista training or experience is required. The winning Reddi-wip Everyday Barista just needs to whip up café-inspired, barista-style coffee drinks with the help of Reddi-wip Sweet Foam Coffee Topper and Nitro Coffee Creamer.
