A global provider of delivery, collection, ordering and loyalty tech – LOKE gives businesses in the hospitality sector the tools they need to transport their menu to local customers.
The technology is designed to help cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs set up their very own delivery app and begin taking orders in just 24 hours – creating a vital income stream to stay afloat during lockdown.
There’s no setup, transaction or licensing fees involved – with no contract periods, either.
Every new signup is also entitled to a 30-day offer.
LOKE says their system has been proven to help bars increase revenue, boost customer engagement, maximise staff efficiency, and reward customer loyalty – with the ability for brands to dig deeper into their database and target high-spending or high-frequenting consumers.
Big companies like Brewdog, Comptoir Libanais and Shake Shack are already on board – having reaped the benefits of their very own delivery app – and one client, Chargrill Charlies, has said that customer spend has risen by as much as 30% since setting up with LOKE.
“The LOKE app was the best one out there in terms of it being able to fit in with our brand,” said Brian, a spokesperson at Chargrill Charlies.
“Initially, we wanted the app to appeal to our younger generation of customers, however older customers have actually adopted it as well. The customer’s average spend has increased by 30% which we see as a success contributed to the app.”
Matt Khoury, LOKE CEO, said: “LOKE is a global provider of delivery, ordering and loyalty technology to the hospitality industry. We transition businesses to the digital world helping them drive new revenue whilst improving the customer experience.
“Brands are tired of paying 30% of their revenue. At LOKE, we are significantly cheaper – protecting and supporting local businesses.”

Tesco to make Clubcard prices ‘clearer’ in stores following watchdog advice
Tesco is to start making Clubcard Prices “even clearer” in stores across the UK after a row with the leading consumer watchdog.
The supermarket‘s Clubcard loyalty scheme has more than 20 million people signed-up nationwide, making it one of the most popular of its kind on the market, by far – but over the coming weeks, members will start to see changes in the way Clubcard Prices are displayed when they’re shopping in Tesco stores.
The retailer has been advised to make the prices “even clearer” by the UK’s leading consumer watchdog.
It’s all to do with unit pricing, as Which? had said that Tesco’s decision not to display this on its Clubcard offers could, essentially, be breaking the law.
According to BBC claims, Which? reported Tesco to the regulator, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), in June of last year, as competition rules state that unit prices could be seen as “material information”.
This means that they’re something most people would need in order to make an informed decision about how to get the best value from what they buy.
But while Tesco apparently said at the time that Which?’s claims were “ill-founded”, it looks to have changed its tune now, as the supermarket’s bosses have this week announced that unit prices will now be displayed in stores.

Tesco’s UK CEO Jason Tarry said the retailer is “working harder than ever” to help make sure customers get “great value” when they shop in stores nationwide.
“We want our customers to be able to see just how well these offers stack up,” Mr Tarry said.
“If you are in store, you will now start to see that the way that we display our Clubcard Prices will not only show the total price, but also the unit price of the product (by volume or weight), to allow a direct comparison of the price per unit between the Clubcard Prices offer and the price of alternative products.”

Mr Tarry claims this is something Tesco’s been “planning to do for some time”, and is “pleased” the retailer is now ready to make the change.
He continued: “Over the coming weeks, these changes will appear in all our stores, as our colleagues update millions of price labels on the shelf edge, and we will also be adding these unit prices to our Clubcard Prices deals online.
“It may be just a little extra help, but we know that every little really does help at the moment.”
