Givex, the cloud-based customer engagement solution that helps to streamline business operations from end-to-end, announced their partnership in providing FOCUS Brands their first united gift card processing platform for their U.S. business.
Atlanta-based FOCUS Brands is the parent company of more than 6,000 restaurants, cafes, ice cream shoppes and bakeries, which comprise prominent multi-channel foodservice brands Auntie Anne’s®, Carvel®, Cinnabon®, Jamba®, Moe’s Southwest Grill®, McAlister’s Deli® and Schlotzsky’s®.

Prior to the Givex launch, FOCUS Brands had multiple gift card processors for the various concepts and their U.S. locations. By uniting all brand gift cards under a single solution, FOCUS Brands is now able to streamline reporting and fund settlement across the organization and gains the ability to recognize and encourage customers to frequent multiple brands. The Givex functionality also allows for existing gift card accounts and historic transactions to be imported into the Givex database, ensuring previously purchased gift cards can still function and be tracked under the new united platform.
Givex was chosen as the single-solution U.S. gift card provider, in part, because of its strong track record as long-time program partner of McAlister’s Deli.
