Show Special: Visit Booth 2401, try Punchh risk-free for 90 days, and see an immediate ROI


Cupertino, CA (June 23, 2012)— Punchh, the social loyalty solution created exclusively for restaurants, invites operators at the Southwest Foodservice Expo  to sign up for Punchh at the show , try it risk-free for 90 days, and see for themselves how easy it is to track and manage referrals from loyal customers and quickly build  their customer base and ROI.


Punchh is easier to use, less expensive to buy and more effective in increasing business than all other loyalty programs used by restaurants today.  Currently, 260 restaurant operators who employ Punchh in more than 600 locations report up to a 400 percent increase in referrals and increased business.


“Operators have always known word of mouth sustains their businesses,” said Jitendra Gupta, CEO of Punchh. “We will prove to them that smart use of social media will increase their return on investment like never before.”


Operators can visit the Punchh booth 2401, sign up, and Punchh will install the application and provide in-store signs, cards and displays at no charge.  Operators then have the option of cancelling within 90 days to obtain a full refund.


Mr. Gupta, quoting Mark Zuckerberg who said that the trusted referral is the “Holy Grail of advertising,” added that operators using Punchh attribute referrals to 71 percent of their business.

“However, there is no one-size-fits-all across all industry approach; in fact, some referral platforms like Yelp have unjustly damaged a restaurant’s reputation,” Gupta said.  “Punchh simply delivers results.”

Operators can use Punchh to instantly reward social behaviors that influence customer dining decisions and to manage gifting, invitations, group rewards and cause marketing.
