In times in which your find yourself in a rush catching the bus or train, it can be hard to hold onto your belongings – especially on a moving, crowded vehicle! The worst thing that could is having your drink spill, splashing yourself and other commuters, as well as damaging your things. If you resonate with this scenario and find this to be a common problem in your commuting life as well then, the Comfycup is the perfect product for you!
The Beginnings of a Successful Small Business
The Comfycup, now a successful small business, was started by a local Toronto Inventor Reey Yadin. Reey recognized that the common commuter faces a lot of inconveniences while they ride public transport. Determined to help make commuters life easier, Yadin created a revolutionary commuting invention that provides a simple, but extremely useful tool – a product in which commuters can attach a portable clip on cup holder for their drinks. Designed to fit around the poles inside public transport, Comfycup was designed for commuters to have their drinks stay put and stable, without any chance of spill throughout the duration of their busy commutes. The Comfycup is a coffee cup holder for trains, buses, and bikes. The Comfycup features an easily portable and accessible design in which the product can clip onto your bag for easy reach, once on public transport, clip on The Comfycup to any available pole and place your cup inside the arms of the product! The product was designed featuring arms that are made out of tapered and secure material so that no matter how bumpy, abrupt, or rough the ride is, your drink will remain stable, ensuring no spillage during your journey!

The Comfycup and Commercial Success
Since its release, Reey Yadin has seen immense success for his amazing and helpful product – especially gaining popularity from investors and commuters in cities where public transport is the main form of transportation for most commuters (Such as Toronto, New York, etc.,). Reey has received great support and positive reviews for his product, catapulting his product into a successful small business. Not only has Reey received positive reviews from the common commuters, but has worked with advertising giants such as Pattison to help promote the convenience and usefulness of the product on transit systems such as the TTC. It’s no surprise that big companies such as Pattison recognize the genius behind The Comfycup and believe in the importance of promoting the product to commuters.
