How offering a subscription can help your coffee shop

Posted by | April 6, 2022

Subscriptions make customers loyal. Customers need to feel that you care about them, that you're giving them a great deal, and that you want to build a long-lasting relationship with them. The best coffee subscription programs know how to make this happen in big and small ways.

That's why the most successful subscriptions are clear about what customers get in return for their loyalty: they provide exclusive benefits, like special deals on community events or discounts on new types of coffee. They also ask their customers directly what they'd like the subscription to offer. This provides an opportunity for you to build your relationship with your customers even more by actively listening to what they have to say.

Keep track of who is subscribed at all times so that when it comes time for a special event, you know exactly which customers should be invited first!
If you use Subport Software to manage your subscription, we will handle all of it for you.

A coffee subscription increases your revenue. When you sell coffee at a discount, you can expect the number of customers to grow; the money saved on marketing will pay off if new customers become loyal fans.

You can offer a subscription at the same price for all customers. This discount is a win-win, since you still make money on every sale, and your customers will appreciate the price break. Alternatively, you can offer a discount for people who buy a certain number of coffees upfront. No matter what format you choose, try to make it easy for customers to subscribe: when someone purchases coffee from your shop and finds out about the subscription program, they shouldn’t have to play 20 questions to figure out how much they’ll save if they sign up.

Your coffee subscription should be available for a limited time only (we recommend 30 days). By making your offer temporary, you can create an urgency that may convince more customers to sign up immediately instead of waiting until tomorrow or next week.

Coffee subscriptions are easy to manage. You can manage subscriptions using Subport's software; there's no need to worry about keeping track of paper cards or punch cards any more.

  • If you offer subscriptions to your coffee shop, you can use the new-found revenue to: increase your store’s hours, hire more employees, purchase an espresso machine, or offer a buy-one-get-one deal. The possibilities are endless!
  • Subscriptions help retain customers. It becomes their second home with regulars who know their name and order in advance of arriving at the counter. This makes them feel like they belong there and want to keep coming back for more. Customers also tend to spend more money at coffee shops when they have a subscription because they don't have as much guilt about spending so much on one cup. Subscriptions can be pricey but worth it if you're looking for an excuse not to feel bad about drinking too many lattes every day (I mean who wouldn't?!).
