Community-led Front Porch Cafe launches loyalty and ordering app with Pepper

June 27, 2022

The Pepper team is thrilled to announce that the Front Porch Cafe app is now live at 3 locations in North Carolina, USA, further expanding our US base of merchants.

Front Porch Cafe, who hope to expand further in the near future through franchising, describe themselves as 'truly a staple of the community'. Not only are Front Porch a great place to grab delicious coffees and baked goods, but they also show love for people and the planet, continually volunteering, donating to local causes, and raising money for charity, as well as having a strong focus on sustainability.

Their coffee is sourced from small independent farmers throughout the world, maintaining the use of organic farming techniques where available, and they make use of biodegradable and recycled materials within their stores, such as their cups and straws.

With a focus on perfectly-roasted beans, Front Porch serves their OBX-famous coffee in a plethora of different ways (just check out their menu!) - from a seasonal 'salty beach' to a baklava latte.

The Front Porch Cafe app allows loyal customers to collect Pepper Points on everything they purchase, meaning they can stack up incredible rewards. In addition to this, the app can be used for pre-order, ensuring busy customers can skip the queue and grab their favourites instantly upon arrival.

Will Bowden, who project-managed the app release, explained that “the app has quickly been adopted by their most loyal customers who are utilising both the convenience and loyalty features offered, which include double points on a Wednesday.”

To attract customers new and old to download the app, Front Porch are offering a $5 sign-up bonus in the form of Pepper Points to those who refer a friend, which is a deal we are sure those lucky to be local to a Front Porch won’t be able to resist!

Utilising the cafe’s incredible selection of vibrant brand colours, the app has been beautifully designed, being minimalistic and with a focus on functionality whilst certainly not sacrificing aesthetic.

Pepper is truly excited to be working with Front Porch Cafe, and look forward to seeing their expansion as well as implementing some of the new app features we have to offer over the coming months.

The app is available to download on the App Store and via Google Play.
