February 15, 2013 // Franchising.com // The Copeland Family of Restaurants is delighted to announce they began offering their “eGift Cards” on January 31, 2013. These “eGift Cards” are a digital gift card that can be ordered online, 24 hours a day, and received via email or on a mobile phone almost immediately or on the delivery date selected.
“This feature offers our guests the ability to choose their gift card design and personalize it when it is sent,” said Al Copeland Jr., Chairman of Al Copeland Investments. “This is our commitment at the Copeland Family of Restaurants, to keep up with technology by providing user-friendly services.”
Copeland’s chose Giftango, the leading provider of digital gift card solutions, as their technology partner. Features available through the Premium Turnkey shopping cart allow “eGift Cards” to be personalized for the recipient, to offer multiple card designs and provide message flexibility. In addition, eGift cards provide an interactive customer experience by showing the balance at all times. The Copeland’s feel this will redefine the method of gift card purchasing, and will be easier for guests to order as well as receive their gift cards.
The “eGift Cards” will work at all Copeland’s of New Orleans and Cheesecake Bistro locations. The Copeland’s Family of Restaurants will continue to offer plastic gift cards as well.
