Not to be outdone by Dunkin Donut’s next generation store that emphasizes mobile ordering, L.A.’s favorite coffee chain, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, just announced mobile ordering for select company-owned locations.
Like other mobile programs, Coffee Bean’s pay ahead ordering allows mobile customers to skip the line for their drink. Those who use the feature will earn extra Rewards points and have access to special discounts. As of today, the feature is available in 191 company-owned store locations around Southern California and Arizona. Coffee Bean plans to make the feature available to franchises and “new geographic areas” in the coming year.
