Peet’s Coffee has relaunched its loyalty rewards program, Peetniks Rewards, and claims growth over the past six months of 350%. In doing so, the company is said to have won the 2018 Paytronix Loyaltee Award for Best Loyalty Restaurant Launch. There might be a catch however in that Peet’s moved its rewards program to the Paytronix platform, and after that . . . Peet’s won the award! Rise Biscuits Donuts, an 18 store franchise spread across 8 states, announced it will go coast to coast with new store development agreements signed in California’s San Fernando valley. The company, which began in Durham, NC claims to have 160 new stores in development across the country.
