As large franchises are entering big cities, local businesses are being pushed out. In an effort to change this, a consulting firm is offering people $1,000 to buy coffee from local establishments for one month.
But there's a catch: participants aren't allowed to get coffee from Starbucks and other large franchises.
Partakers are also expected to track "important elements of their experiences such as cost, quality, customer service, and average wait time" on their social media networks.
You can apply at the business.org website. But you need to hurry. Deadline is September 30th.
