Tips for the optimal curbside experience

  • Step 1 - Offer customers an easy way to order ahead, either through mobile ordering with joe or over the phone to your shop
  • Step 2 - Baristas fulfill the order right away and notify the customer when it's ready!
  • Step 3 - Provide a designated pick-up zone for quick curbside pick up
  • Step 4 - Baristas walk the customer's order out as soon as they arrive. joe's "I've arrived" feature on the consumer app notifies baristas when the customer has pulled in.

Pro tip: For an added layer of precaution, set a table on the sidewalk of the pick up zone. Baristas can set the drink down on the table, and the customer can pick it up.


Indaba Coffee Roasters is thriving with curbside pick up through joe at three out of their five locations. They've designated pick-up zones right outside the shops  to allow for quick and healthy service. Check out their curbside experience in the video below, their customers love it too!


Moving to mobile ordering only is the safest possible way to serve your customers and keep your doors open.
