We are local business owners who have developed an awesome way to help grow your business.
As told by our Founder & CEO, Johann Moonesinghe
Owning my own restaurant really opened my eyes to how awesome and powerful a group of regular customers can be.
I love food. I love having friends over for dinner, drinking wine with family, and cooking with my husband. So of course, when the opportunity to open a restaurant came up, I jumped on it.
Owning my own restaurant really opened my eyes to the struggles a local business goes through, but also how awesome and powerful a group of regular customers can be.
I strived to give them consistently great service, which isn't always easy when I am not at the restaurant myself. I designed the inKind mobile app as a way to reward my best customers for their continued loyalty and also to ensure that they have a great experience whenever they come in. It worked really well, so now I'm helping other local businesses sell House Accounts through our app.
