World of Beer "In the palm of your hand" | News
Tampa, Florida-- World of Beer Franchising, Inc. (WOB), a rapidly growing Tampa-based concept, formally announced on August 23 the launch of their free mobile app for iPhone and Android users.
The highly anticipated app is aimed at providing customers all over the country with the most up-to-date information on inventory, upcoming events, nationwide locations, and loyalty status, a release about the launch states.
“As the World of Beer concept continues to grow, we are committed to providing customers with not only the most extensive beer selection, but now a platform in which we’re expanding our culture through cutting-edge technology,” said Ben Novello, CEO of World of Beer Franchising, Inc. in the release. “Users truly have a World of Beer in the palm of their hand, and this is only the beginning of exciting things for the entire WOB community."
WOB teamed up with Tampa-based app developer and avid WOB enthusiast, Matthew Breedlove of No Name Industries. Breedlove reportedly developed the idea because he, himself became frustrated with perusing a list of 500+ beers every time he ordered.
"We’ve been fortunate to combine two of our passions – beer and programming,” he said in the release. “Working with World of Beer has been a wonderful experience, and as an added benefit, we get to do extensive ‘field testing’ and call it work.”
The mobile app, now available for download as “World of Beer”, allows users to do the following:
FIND A BEER: View the entire inventory from any WOB location in real-time. By using the smart filtering system, users are able to search for the perfect beer at any location or shake the phone to have the app choose a random beer.
GET LOYALTY INFORMATION: Enter your card number to access your loyalty information. By using the loyalty filtering system, users are able to choose from a list of new beers they’ve never tried.
SEARCH UPCOMING EVENTS: Access event information for any WOB location. Whether it’s live music, brewery features and beer specials, users are able to see what is happening in advance.
FIND LOCATION INFO: Do you want to know where the nearest World of Beer is? How about hours? Phone number? Users can access all this information along with a built-in map.
WOB was founded here in Tampa in 2007. They now have 31 locations across 10 states: Florida, Virginia, Texas, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona and South Carolina.
