Good news! Your daily cup of Bo's err, joe is just a click away with the introduction of the advance ordering bot from Bo's Coffee, BOTTY!
Bo's Coffee has been known for serving their quality Philippine coffee since 1996, with beans harvested by local farmers in Sagada, Benguet, Bukidnon, Davao, and Cotabato. This time around, the coffee chain upgrades their service with digital innovations to make ordering hassle-free for their customers, thus, the launch of BOTTY-- a country's first.
“We really want to give our loyal customers the best of both worlds. If they want to unwind and relax, they can come to our stores and enjoy the ambiance. When they want to save time and don’t have time to line up, we also have the platform for that and that’s BOTTY,” this according to Steve Benitez, CEO of Bo’s Coffee.
BOTTY founder Cary Gee, also shared his experience with LINE in China, where the messaging app had become an all-around platform for food ordering, money transfer, and other services. This is what Gee is trying to bring to the Philippines through the online messaging app mostly used by Filipinos, Messenger.
