Joe Coffee raises another $1.3M to help more coffee shops take mobile orders

Gone — or at least on hold for a long while — are the days of hanging around a coffee shop, poking around the Internet on the free WiFi while sipping the same coffee for three hours. The entire idea feels kind of alien right now. A little anxiety-inducing, even.
But coffee shops still want to find ways to safely stay in business, and people still want their coffee. With many states limiting orders to pickup/to-go, mobile ordering is seeing a massive uptick across the food industry. That’s great for Starbucks and anyone else who already had mobile ordering in place, but it leaves many smaller shops scrambling for a solution. Building your own app is complicated – and getting people to download it can be its own challenge.
For the last few years, Seattle-based Joe Coffee has been building a mobile ordering “network” for indie coffee spots — basically, a one-stop app for ordering from nearby coffee shops that aren’t Starbucks. The team had raised $2.2M previously; after seeing a massive uptick in usage and interest from coffee shops in recent months, the company has raised another $1.3M to scale up with demand.
