LuvJo, an online ordering platform dedicated to local coffee shops, juice bars and food trucks and LevelUp, the leading provider of mobile engagement solutions for the restaurant industry, announced a partnership that will allow participating merchants to effectively increase order ahead sales through LevelUp’s exclusive distribution partners. With this partnership, LuvJo and LevelUp are leveling the playing field between smaller-scale neighborhood merchants and the large, name-brand coffee chains that offer consumers similar order ahead options.
“Local coffee shops risk losing business if they continue to force customers to waste time in lines. Not only are we now solving this issue – but through this LevelUp partnership we’re actually driving an increase in customer volume while allowing our merchant partners to remain highly efficient,” said Tony Kidd, CEO of LuvJo.
Local coffee shops can now reach millions of customers with seamless order ahead functionality, baked right into apps already on their mobile devices, without devoting the marketing resources that would otherwise be needed to drive these same consumers to their own branded app. This exposure to new customers promises to drive higher order volume for these merchants, and they will continue to experience the benefits of the LevelUp network as the company announces more strategic partners in the months ahead.
“LuvJo is making big waves by powering the online ordering capabilities of independent coffee shops, and supporting local economies in this way is something we can truly get behind. This partnership will drive more orders to local coffee shops while introducing LevelUp users to great local establishments that they otherwise may have missed out on,” said Seann Moriarty, head of partnerships at LevelUp.
