About Us

Yave was born in coffee.

Our story started with a simple mission: to help small business owners across the coffee supply chain be more profitable. Now, we're opening up our technology to all makers, flavor mavens, and craftspeople. Join us.

Main street brands deserve to stand out in their markets. In today's environment they also need to be able to compete with big businesses on convenience, ordering, and customer engagement.

We know because we were made in a cafe. Yave levels the playing field by cutting out middle-man ordering marketplace apps like Uber Eats, and helping you invest directly in your customers. As end-consumers, we want to know where our money is going and the purpose behind the brand names we support. Yave helps you bring your story to life in a beautiful and easy-to-use format.

Know your regulars. Grow your regulars. We build beautiful technology that empowers you and your best customers to enjoy maximum value over every single sale. A digital relationship at your point of sale is 300% more valuable than a traditional transactional relationship over the lifetime of your engagement with that customer.

We value:
Inclusion    ·    Quality    ·    Candor    ·    Hustle    ·    Grit    ·    Positivity
