How Our Customers Are Using Kanova

The Bean Coffee Shop

The Bean prides itself on single origin modern coffee, decadent baked goods, and its role as a local hangout. Nearly the whole town frequents the shop for pick-me-ups, a place to read, or to listen to local singer songwriters. The Bean desired a way to keep their community informed and engaged – without posting flyers – and to cut down the wait time. So, The Bean created a private Kanova group to promote events, share updates & news, daily specials, and allow customers to order ahead of time. Customers joined the group in seconds via the QR code on the counter, set up member profiles, and even interacted within the group.

Restaurant, bar & food truck

Lobster Roll LLC (comprised of two brick-and-mortar restaurants, one food truck, and a busy catering business) became successful and sought after among locals and tourists alike. The customers loved the food but were annoyed with inefficiency. Hearing their customers’ pleas, Lobster Roll LLC created an all-in-one public Kanova group. They offer online ordering, incorporated a geolocator for fans to locate the lobster roll truck, and they share their Instagram & Twitter pages all within the group. Additionally, Lobster Roll LLC created a fundraiser in the group, securing donations for employees’ families impacted by Covid-19.

Running store & network

Run the World is more than a shoe store. It’s a network of runners that walk, jog and race together, and form friendships beyond their runs. Kanova helped Run the World solidify their network by setting up a Kanova group. They invited all users in the store to scan the group’s QR code and invited their contact list via email. In addition to selling their shoes and apparel in the group, Run the World lists two to three runs in the group, and an occasional social activity. Their network expanded in size, their members became closer, and consequently, the store achieved brand loyalty.
