AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Roasterie (www.theroasterie.com), a renowned Kansas City, Missouri-based specialty coffee company with three café locations and two more set to open this spring, today announced the availability of The Roasterie Mobile App on iOS and Android devices. The Roasterie leveraged AVAI Mobile (www.avaimobile.com) technology, cutting mobile development costs while providing a uniquely revisable and user-friendly mobile app.
From its approach to finding the highest quality coffee beans to its signature flavor-enhancing air-roasting technique, The Roasterie has built a reputation for being an innovator in the marketplace. So when The Roasterie set out to build the next great coffee mobile app, it’s not surprising that they didn’t want to invest millions of dollars and spend years in development, like so many big players before them have tried.
“It was important that we deliver the same convenience and value to customers as other large coffee roasters and cafes, but we had to find a different path to get the same result,” said Danny O’Neill, founder of The Roasterie. “I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
The Roasterie partnered with AVAI Mobile to create a mobile experience to meet their customer expectations for convenience and access. The AVAI Mobile Platform enables The Roasterie to create a business-oriented user experience, add third-party technologies like point-of-sale and loyalty systems, and then manage a mobile strategy after the initial app launch.
“We’ve created a better way to build and manage mobile apps, so that brands like The Roasterie can focus on delivering real value to their customers and recognize a return on their investment much faster,” said Rand Arnold, CEO and Founder of AVAI Mobile. “The Roasterie has made great use of our platform, and I’m confident they now have the mobile solution in place to be very successful.”
The Roasterie Mobile App allows on-the-go customers to choose a café, browse menu items and favorites, order and pre-pay. Customers will also have a convenient way to shop The Roasterie store, access a tailored brewing guide, and earn rewards with The Roasterie loyalty card.
About The Roasterie Air-Roasted Coffee
The Roasterie Air-Roasted Coffee has served only the best coffee for the past 20-plus years sourced from countries with the world’s richest resources for harvesting exceptional beans. Founder Danny O’Neill air-roasted his first batch of beans from the basement of his Kansas City, Mo., home in 1993—and The Roasterie was born. O’Neill opened The Roasterie’s first official production facility in 1994. Today the Roasterie’s production facility is at 1204 West 27th Street in Kansas City and crowned with a historic DC-3 aircraft. This aircraft is a symbol of exploration, Kansas City’s aviation history, the American spirit and the adventure of The Roasterie. In addition to its plant café at 1204 West 27th Street, The Roasterie operates cafes at 6223 Brookside Boulevard in Kansas City, Mo., and 4511 119th Street in Leawood, Kan. The Roasterie is proud to foster lasting business relationships, resulting in more than 600 businesses, grocery stores, restaurants, colleges and universities choosing its coffee, iced and hot teas, and distribution services for more than 20 years.
