The Loyalty Program App For Coffee Shops

Gain more customers, sell more products and revolutionise the way you do business with custom-built mobile apps for coffee shops and roasters

With the increasingly tough competition from coffee shop giants and countless pop-up stores, your coffee shop or roaster needs to work differently if it’s going to survive. Whether it’s specialist coffee bean recipes, discounts, or loyalty programmes, it’s important to go the extra mile to connect with your customers in a unique way. Whether that’s offering a genuinely fantastic product, an unbeatable customer loyalty programme or a fascinating story, doing things differently is what will set you apart.

At Apps4U, we develop loyalty program apps that can transform the way your business works. By having a custom-built mobile app, you can broaden your reach into other markets, get the edge over the major competitors in your area and revolutionise the way your customers view your store, all while promoting extra sales.

Business woman sitting in a coffee shop, working on a laptopMy coffee shop is small. Will I be able to afford an app?

Yes!

While app development sounds expensive, it’s much more affordable than you may think — and thanks to our feature library and development process, we cut these costs even further.

This feature library allows us to effectively drop code into your app, saving time over writing it from scratch. We’ll then adjust the features from there, making sure they work exactly as you need them to and bug testing them to make sure nothing breaks.

You’ll end up with a bug-free app and a great way to get a step above your competitors — all for less than you’d expect!

What can our coffee shop apps do?

In-app loyalty card

Number 1 on your list of useful features should be the in-app loyalty card. Customers who use a loyalty program spend between 12-18% more revenue than non-members and the reward for being a loyal customer can keep them coming back for more! In fact, if you increase customer retention by just 5% you can boost profits by 25%-90%. Perfect for a coffee shop that’s going up against the giants like Starbucks and Costa!


Events calendar

Put on open mic nights or special events? Your app can come with a built-in calendar that can remind your loyal customers about exciting events, sending them notifications as the event date approaches.


shoppingIn-app online shop

Selling coffee in store is one thing, but if you sell specialist coffee beans too, an in-app online store is a must. Your app can include a 24/7 online shop that takes payments securely, sends order details direct to your computer or printer. Your customers can even reorder the moment they run out of beans with a 1-click reorder feature.


find usLocation-based push notifications

A customer with your app can be alerted when they walk past your store, or even towards a Starbucks! You can then offer them a small discount off their order if they come in, or you remind them of new recipes, events, or anything else you can think of.


In-app Menus

An inbuilt menu lets your customers see what you’re offering and for what price in just a few seconds as well as promoting any special offers on certain options. You can also include pictures and explanations of each type of coffee, helping them to understand the difference between a macchiato and a mochaccino. You can even add a flavour guide for the real coffee lovers too!


Testimonials

Word of mouth is extremely important for coffee shops. Your customers can leave feedback in your app, or write reviews that you can use on your website. You can even tempt them to leave feedback by offering discounts when they do!


Social media integration

Let your customers upload and see updates to and from your social media channels. You can upload images of special events, offers and vouchers, and see what your customers are saying, too. All you need to do is post in your app and it’ll filter through to both Facebook and twitter automatically.


Subscriptions

Getting your customers to sign up allows you to improve the sales you make. By offering news and updates on new types of coffee, you can recapture the interest of customers, and even offer a VIP coffee lover bonus to your most loyal customers.

These are just a small selection of app features that we are able to put into your app, but there are many others that you can include, such as Youtube Channel, quick SatNav directions to your location and even customised features for something truly off the wall. Whatever you’re after, we’ll be able to build it for you.
