CRFA Show A Sensational Success For Synergy

The past three days have been a thrilling experience for Synergy Merchant Services. As we have been reporting for weeks, Synergy took part in the annual CRFA Show at the beautiful and spacious Direct Energy Centre on the grounds of Exhibition Place in Toronto. What an event! The CRFA Show not only lived up to expectations but actually exceeded them all.

Visitors from all over the country and in fact, several from across the world strolled through the many aisles of exhibitors showcasing all kinds of fantastic foods, food service items other affiliated services. There was so much to see – and so much food to try – that it was non-stop excitement throughout the entire three day event.

We were delighted to speak to so many people about Synergy Merchant Services and our fantastic merchant cash advance program. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, many of our new friends were hearing about merchant cash advances for the first time. It spoke volumes about just how important events such as the CRFA Show are. Having the opportunity to meet with such a great number of business owners in the restaurant and food services industries was truly a worthwhile experience. We eagerly look forward to building the many new business relationships that have created over the past three days.

Interestingly, we seemed to attract many of our new associates with our inventive table display. Like we did last year, the Synergy Merchant Services booth was home to a large cake tray of imitation $100 stacks. Apparently, a lot of people are in need of money…even if it’s fake!

While we revealed that our stack of play money was simply a display item, by the end of the three day event, we were left with just a handful of stacks. We’ve been robbed!

Actually, all of our promotional items seemed to be big hits! Synergy happily gave out a ton of our very popular wine openers and exclusively made hockey calendar pens. Originally designed and exclusively distributed by our very own Synergy Marketing division, these pens all came with a nifty pull out calendar featuring this year’s schedule for all Canadian pro hockey teams! We were hard pressed to find anyone who didn’t become an instant fan of these pens. If you’re looking for pens like these or any other promotional item to feature the name and contact information of your business, please visit

The CRFA Show truly was the world’s largest hospitality event. Every single guest was friendly. Every single visitor had a good time. Synergy is very proud to be a member of the CRFA and already looks forward to next year’s show. Hopefully we’ll have an even bigger stack of fake cash.
