GETTING STARTED WITH CORRIDOR COFFEE CLUB

FAQs

THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN BEING A PART OF THE CORRIDOR COFFEE CLUB. WE'VE PREPARED THIS FAQ AREA TO ANSWER SOME BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR PROGRAM AND HOW IT CAN BENEFIT YOUR BUSINESS

We are thankful that we can extend to independent coffee shops and roasters access to our market program at no cost. Our revenue is generated through the sale of our digital passports. We use part of those proceeds to promote and market independent coffee shops.

When a passport holder comes into your location, they will display their ‘redeemed’ digital voucher and are eligible for one cust of drip coffee each month. You, the shop owner, may opt to offer the user an upgrade or other option in place of their digital coffee voucher.

Example: You may offer $1 off a premium coffee or muffin when they use their monthly discount.

We invite shop owners to treat passport holders as a preferred group and offer our passport holders the same promotional rate you would offer any other select groups.

The goal is to keep them coming back and choosing you over the big-chain coffee shops.

This IS NOT a requirement for your participation in the program.

As of this moment, our program resets January 1, 2025. We are expecting an up grade to our system that will provide a rolling-registration where a person’s passport will expire 1-year from their date of purchase.

We will provide additional updates when this become available.

We are currently adding coffee shops and roasters to our program. Our initial goal is to have between 50-60 coffee shops in the Greater Atlanta area participating in the program.

Our mobile app is location aware, so it will always show the coffee shops closed to the user.

Please keep in mind that one of the goals of the program is to redirect dollars from the big-chain stores into the independent coffee shop community.

Consider that 215 Starbucks in the Atlanta area generated over $200 Million in revenu while 170 independent coffee shops generated just $69 Million.

No. Our program is based on a mobile app in which the Passport holder activates their reward and displays it to you. There are multiple elements in the redemption that allow for validation, which keeps it fast and simple.

We don’t contract a given time period but do ask that you stay with the program at least 1 year to allow us time to promote and share your business with our audience.

If you feel the need to leave the program, we do ask for a 30-day notice.

That’s great. Corridor Coffee Club is about building and supporting the collective of independent coffee shops and roasters. You are encouraged to continue your efforts to build and grow your own programs.

We are here to support the community of independent shops overall.
