Referral Programs for Coffee Shops

Grow your coffee shop through word of mouth.


If you ask us, word of mouth is still the best way to gain new customers. What’s better than your loyal customers telling their friends about you? And now, creating, running, and managing a program is easier than ever. Pollen lets you build a custom referral program for your coffeeshop so you can reach more locals through word of mouth.


Launch a referral program in minutes.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.



Choose a gift

“Give your friends a free coffee


Then a reward

and earn a free drink


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.

Not only are referrals the best way to grow your coffee shop, they can also be the most cost-effective. For just a few dollars worth of product, plus the cost of Pollen, you can gain new customers that come back to spend $100-500+ each year with you.

How about an example?

If Pollen brings you just 5 new customers this year, and they end up spending $10/month with you, you’ll earn $600. Calculate how much Pollen can help your business earn using our free calculator here…
