Order your coffee ahead with startup Mojo

February 13, 2019

Want the convenience of big box store order-ahead coffee service, but at your local, independent coffee shop?

Dayton startup Mojo has your back.

The order-ahead coffee app is now up and running in its sixth Dayton-area coffee shop, cofounder Noah Bragg shared this week. You can order your coffee and pick it up at Courthouse Coffee, Third Perk Coffeehouse & Wine Bar, Gem City Catfe and Ghostlight Coffee in Dayton, as well as Coffee Hub Xenia and Coffee Hub Beavercreek.

“Independent coffee shops are part of the community,” he said. “That’s why we at Mojo want to partner with local coffee shops and help them bring more convenience, but still keep their unique feel.”

Noah & his co-founder Drew Bidlen were college roommates before they became business partners. They developed Mojo to empower unique, independent coffee shops — there are 35K independent coffee shops across the US — to offer the same order-ahead convenience as larger chain coffee shops.

They actually built the beta version of the app by working with a coffee shop in New Hampshire.

Noah pitched at Dayton Tech Guide’s Early Risers program in August 2018 seeking connections to coffee shop owners.

At the top of 2019, more than 2,000 transactions have been processed through the Mojo app, representing more than $16K worth of coffee sales.

As of next week, both Noah and Drew will be working at Mojo full-time.

“We are really excited to have recently hit these goals and milestones with Mojo,” Noah said.
