Odeko helps merchants cut supply costs by up to 21%, save up to 10 hours per week, lower carbon emissions by up to 66%.
AUGUST 24, 2022 (PORTLAND, OR) – Odeko, a purpose-driven digital operations software that provides streamlined supply chain management and mobile ordering tools for coffee shops and cafes, has expanded into Portland.
Founded in 2019, Odeko helps independent businesses cut supply costs by up to 21%, saving owners on average up to 10 hours per week of their own time, and reducing carbon emissions by up to 66%. Odeko customers, primarily independent coffee shop and cafe owners, have access to both well-known and locally produced brands at competitive pricing, in-app mobile ordering for customers, and overnight delivery with no hidden fees or delivery minimums.
The mobile order ahead functionality provides another point of connection between the cafe and its customer, enabling coffee lovers to use the Odeko app to pre-order from their favorite local spots or discover new coffee shops they haven’t tried before.
“It’s a privilege to expand operations into a city so well known for its coffee culture,” said Dane Atkinson, Founder and CEO of Odeko. “Not only is third wave coffee a key part of Portland’s heritage, but the cultural influence of the motto ‘Keep Portland Weird’ has inspired a strong network of independent businesses. We’re so excited to get to know you all and use our technology to continue making Portland a place where coffee and community can thrive.”
Odeko also limits the stress of supply chain shortages by ensuring preferred brands and a variety of options are in stock, especially when it comes to sourcing popular alternative milk options.
Odeko’s vendors in Portland include cafe favorites such as: Oat-ly, Minor Figures, Califia Farms, Pacific Foods Barista Series, Rishi Tea & Botanicals, Liquid Death, David Rio Chai & Tea, Sugar Foods Corporation, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Numi Organic Tea, Bume, Victory Packaging, ecoStick sweeteners, Better Booch Premium Small Craft Kombucha, Lotus Plant Energy, Maya Tea, Sun & Swell Foods, Milkadamia, 183 Maison Routin France, Kilogram Tea and Holy Kakow.
The Odeko platform currently supports 10,000 independent coffee shops and cafes across 16 markets, most recently expanding into Miami in July.
With each new market launch, Odeko hosts a Latte Art Throwdown in partnership with Espresso State of Mind to bring together the coffee community and amplify baristas’ latte art skills through spirited competition. The Latte Art Throwdown for the Portland launch will be hosted on September 1 at 5:30 pm at Concourse Coffee on Northeast Couch Street. The winners of the competition will receive cash prizes from a $1,000 pool. Anyone in the Portland area is welcome to attend and can RSVP on the Eventbrite page.
Independent store owners in the Portland area can sign up and learn more through the Odeko website. Customers can begin ordering from participating coffee shops and cafes in the coming weeks via the Odeko mobile app available for iPhone and Android.
