December 05, 2017 // Franchising.com // SAN FRANCISCO - Vitality Bowls, the superfood café chain beloved by health-conscious communities across the nation, today announced the debut of its new mobile app developed by Punchh, a cloud-based technology platform that builds engagement, loyalty and superior, customized experiences in the restaurant industry.
The app offers users one loyalty point for each dollar spent at Vitality Bowls. Once the user reaches 100 points, they are rewarded with $10 off their next purchase. Additional rewards for friend referrals and birthdays are seamlessly accessible for redemption within the app. The app also integrates mobile payments, gift card sharing and includes a store locator, with plans to continue to roll out new functionality in the coming months.
Originating in Northern California, Vitality Bowls has solidified itself as America’s superfood café – combining a dynamic café vibe with a unique collection of menu items containing high nutritional values and extraordinary tastes. Vitality Bowls offers an antioxidant-rich menu, with breakfast, lunch and dinner items made to order for each customer. All açaí bowls and smoothies do not contain ingredient fillers such as ice, frozen yogurt, added sugar or artificial preservatives, giving the purest taste possible.
Punchh’s clients include more than 100 leading restaurant chains such as Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, El Pollo Loco, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Pieology, Quiznos, and Smashburger. Punchh’s Restaurant Marketing Cloud™ is the first platform that bridges the gap between restaurants and customers, empowering restaurants to shape personalized offers that attract and engage more meaningfully with loyal customers.
