Buddy Brew is leveling up, and has officially launched its express mobile app (Buddy Brew Coffee), allowing caffeine junkies to order from their phones. Take that, Starbucks.
Although Tampa Bay locals usually find themselves planted in one of Buddy Brew's four locations around town to marvel (and document) their foam art, sometimes we need to catch a buzz on-the-go.
App users can choose a pickup time from any of the coffee shops locations from as soon as the next 10-15 minutes, or schedule out a specific date and time. Say, tomorrow morning on your way to work, because you just can't get through the morning commute without your flat white latte.
By the way, you can also grab juices, teas, pastries, merch and a bag of beans through the app, as well.
The best part about this new app? Once you download it on your smartphone, you get your first drink on the house. Local coffee shops are doing all they can to cancel out chains, like creating comfortable and vibe-worthy spaces, free Wi-Fi and now a way to becoming more than ever to shop local by catering to those who don't have the time or the patience to order through an employee. Buddy Brew locations located on Kennedy Blvd., Park Tower, Hyde Park Village and within Oxford Exchange.
