I think the below example is great. It should be really easy for tools 
to consume.

What we've gone with with data.southampton.ac.uk is something very 
similar expect that our focus wasn't the company doing the gr:offers, 
but the point of sale or service.

Nobody really cares if they are buying their coffee from the University 
Catering, Students Union Catering or from the Theatre. The key thing 
people want to know is where to buy coffee? when do they open? how much 
does it cost?

I've developed a simple transform to take spreadsheet based descriptions 
of points of service locations, opening hours, and product lists or menus:

The tool takes points-of-services & products/offerings as it's two input 
types but it could be adapted (easily) to take CSV data describing 
companies and shop-items. Which would make it cheap and easy to populate 
the model you've got here, from a 2-workbook google spreadsheet. Which 
would make it really painless to produce. Ideally this could be a 
service you register the URL of your google doc and it sucks out and 
publishes your data as RDF...
