Referral Programs for Bakeries

Grow your bakery through word of mouth.


As a bakery, word-of-mouth is a powerful marketing tool to help you grow. Pollen lets you create a referral program for your bakery, so your customers can refer friends to your bakeshop right from their phones. Now you can launch a custom program, that runs itself, in minutes. Pollen will make the bread, while you make the bread (see what we did there?).


Launch a referral program in minutes.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.



Choose a gift

“Give your friends a free pastry


Then a reward

and earn any artisan loaf


And the number

for every 3 friends who use it.”


How it works.


Share the link to your program.

After you create your program, you just share 1 link. When customers tap or click the link, they’ll be able to join your program in seconds and start referring friends. Share your link anywhere your customers are: your website, social media, and more.


Customers join in seconds, create an account, and can refer friends right from their phone.

Your customers will be able to share your gift with friends in just a few taps, through text message, social, or anywhere else they want.

Customers redeem rewards, in seconds.

Customers can use our “tap to redeem” feature, so everything is hands-free for you. And redeeming a Friend’s gift just takes a few seconds. From there, Pollen will invite the friend to join your program and start inviting their friends.


How Pollen makes you money.

As a bakery, you’re margins are probably small. That means paying $2/click through social ads, or paying hundreds each month to digital marketing professionals may not be cost effective. With word-of-mouth, you can gain dozens of new customers for just a few dollars per customer (plus the cost of running Pollen of course).

How about an example?

If Pollen helps you gain just 5 new customers this year, and they come back and spend $10/month at your shop, Pollen will make you $600/year. How’s that for dough?
