July 19th, 2022 (Miami, Florida) – Odeko, a purpose-driven digital software that provides streamlined supply chain management and mobile ordering tools for coffee shops and cafes, launches next week in Miami. To celebrate its launch, Odeko will be hosting the ultimate Latte Art Throwdown event at Vice City Bean in partnership with Espresso State of Mind.
Odeko, founded in 2019, helps to remove the complexity of business operations through a comprehensive platform that gives independent cafe owners the freedom to bring their visions to life without compromising their bottom line. Odeko merchants 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. Odeko prioritizes efficiency for shop owners by cutting their 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%.
The mobile order ahead functionality provides another point of connection between the business 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.
By placing roots in Miami, a city home to a dense population of coffee shops, Odeko can provide better services and more variety including from brands beloved by the Miami consumer like Tiger Radiate Kombucha, Tiger Seed, and Once Upon A Coconut. Odeko will open its warehouse in Hallandale Beach servicing a 35 mile radius and supporting local job opportunities for warehouse and delivery employees.
“The Magic City has had a phenomenal coffee culture for many years and continues to grow thanks to the ‘Miami Movement’ that occurred during and post pandemic,” says Dane Atkinson, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Odeko.
“We know coffee shop owners open their doors because of their commitment to great coffee and their understanding of how significant a local coffee shop can be to a growing community. We’re excited about the opportunity to support the burgeoning independent coffee scene in Miami by taking operations off owners’ to-do lists so they can get back to the heart of the business - brewing up magic for each customer.”
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. For the Miami launch, The Latte Art Throwdown will be hosted on July 28th at Vice City Bean on North Miami Avenue. The winner of the competition will receive an all-expenses-paid ticket to Coffee Fest LA.
Independent coffee shop owners in the Miami area can sign up and learn more about Odeko 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.
