Quest Coffee Roasters

Australian coffee roasters and cafe owners Quest Coffee wanted to upgrade their old, unhygienic paper punch-card system. Instead, they wanted a contactless digital solution. Take a look at how it works!

Quest Coffee Roasters

Background

Located on the enviable sunny Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Quest Coffee Roasters have been brewing up coffee perfectionism for over 10 years.

Quest Coffee runs a busy cafe serving their specialty brews and cakes, as well selling bags of coffee, loose teas, a range of coffee equipment – and for the ultimate caffeine addict – coffee subscriptions.

As the name suggests, this company is on a quest to provide great coffee – and a way to reward their customers for accompanying them on their journey too!

The Brief

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Quest Coffee were searching for a digital loyalty solution to replace their old, unhygienic paper punch-card system.

With a busy cafe and stock flying off their shelves Quest Coffee approached Stamp Me to assist them with implementing a loyalty solution that would increase customer retention and boost in-store sales.

Key Objectives

The primary goals that Quest Coffee and Stamp Me strived to achieve with a digital loyalty solution were to:

  • Safeguard customers with an effective contactless loyalty program
  • Strengthen the emotional connection between the business and its customers
  • Motivate customers to make repeat purchases
  • Keep the Quest Coffee brand front-of-mind for existing customers
  • Gain valuable data and insights into customer profiles and purchase behaviours
  • Send targeted communications and promotions directly to customers’ mobile devices
  • Add an element of fun and modernity to their loyalty program

How the 

Quest Coffee Roasters

 Loyalty Program Works

The Quest Coffee loyalty program rewards customers for regularly patronising their cafe and store.

They have set up two separate loyalty offers, one for in-store coffee drink purchases and another for take-home coffee bean purchases.

Coffee drink offer:

  • Customers earn a stamp for every tea or coffee purchased (any size)
  • After collecting 10 stamps, they are automatically rewarded with a free cup of tea or speciality coffee to redeem at their convenience
  • To help their customers along, Quest Coffee award one stamp upon sign-up

Coffee bean offer:

  • Customers earn a stamp for every 500g bag of coffee they purchase
  • After collecting 10 stamps, they are automatically rewarded with a free 500g bag of coffee of their choice, to redeem at their convenience
  • To help their customers along, Quest Coffee award one stamp upon sign-up

Validation Methods

Quest Coffee uses a unique Stamp Code to securely validate stamps for their in-store coffee offers.

Positioned next to the cash register, customers of Quest Coffee are able to open the app at the time of payment, and simply scan the stamp QR code to claim their stamp.

Promotion

Customers of Quest Coffee will usually become aware of the program when they visit the store through posters positioned strategically around the venue.

The passionate staff are also brilliant advocates of their new program. They educate customers at the point of sale and prompt them to download the Stamp Me app (with great take-up rates!)
