Grind & Co., the independent group of central London spaces serving coffee cocktail and food from day to night, has released their first app, the Grind App, which allows customers to pre order and pay for their coffee from their iPhone. In just three taps your morning coffee fix will be ordered and paid for ready for you to collect at your nearest Grind – no need to queue or even take your wallet out of your pocket.
Inspired by the simplicity of ordering an Uber, Grind wanted to streamline the customer experience. The first of its kind for an independent coffee group, the app aims to revolutionise how we order for regularly purchased drinks – why queue in line to place the same order day after day?
With four sites since the launch of Shoreditch Grind in 2011, Grind has become a firm favourite of the independent coffee shop scene in London. Last year saw the launch of their first restaurant, London Grind, and the crowdfunding of £1.3m through Crowdcube, to finance the opening of a state-of-the-art roastery in east London, as well as their expansion across the city in 2016.
Grind App is free to download on iOS devices now via the App Store. It can be used at all of the Grind branches.
