An elegant reuse system that is great for business

You are probably here because you realise that single-use isn't the best solution for the planet - or your business.

'Compostables' have their own environmental issues, are likely not composted, and probably don't meet your's or your customers' expectations.

Most importantly, they are still single-use and they are costing you more to operate.

HuskeeSwap is a deceptively simple reuse solution for cafes and venues to eliminate disposable cups. Here is why it is good for your business:

A self-managed purchase model system, with no ongoing costs.
Save thousands of dollars on disposable packaging costs with uptake.
Adds an additional revenue stream to your business.
An App-supported (but not required) low-tech solution (customers can Opt-in when they want, use how you want).
Designed with cafe operation in mind - universal lids, stacking, POS and pre-ordering guides, low-barriers for high-volume servce.
We replace damaged cups free, and give them an end-of-life through HuskeeLoop program

Why use a Swap System?

You could simply use or sell a HuskeeCup as the favourite BYO cup. Many do.

However, there are some compelling advantages to using the HuskeeSwap system (see below).

Implementing a Swap system shows an important commitment and helps your business integrate reuse behaviour into their service for their customers. This is more than just putting the onus on the customer to buy and remember to bring their reusable cup.

Business Benefits

Commercially washed and hygienic cups, ready to go
Can utilise pre-ordering systems with reusables
The cup sizes and system is designed for baristas
BYO doesn't scale great with busy/high volume service

Customer Benefits

No need to wash their cup on the go. Swap it
App-supported (deposits, credit cards & even app are not required to start). Opt-in to features they love
Swap for any size. Use design-winning cups for a great coffee experience
An experience almost as convenient as disposables, and way better for the planet

What your target customer reuse participation is.

24 Cups Pack - Small volume Cafe (1-100 coffees/day)
