Featured Menu Items: What they are and how to set them

As former baristas, we know the importance of up-selling to customers to encourage higher average tickets. With Featured Items, joe automatically up-sells items on your behalf, giving you a boost to your bottom line!

You can feature up to two items per category (Hot Drinks, Cold Drinks, Food, and additional menu categories) so choose wisely! We recommend adding splashy photos to your signature drinks, easy up-sell food items like pastries, or seasonal specials you might be offering.

There are two areas in the app where your Featured Items automatically appear to users:

  • In the "Shops near you" search page - perfect for capturing customers looking to discover more shops nearby!
  • Every menu category - encourages impulse purchases and larger spending!
