Dutch Bros Loyalty Program Exceeds Expectations
Dutch Bros Coffee's Dutch Rewards program, launched in early 2021, has seen early success. The brand shared that the rewards program accounts for 60 percent of sales, and Dutch Bros' CFO Charles Jemley now believes 70 to 75 percent is "probably a realistic goal."

"I think with privacy laws, it's going to get more and more difficult to engage with people, and having them as registered users gives us the license to speak to them on their terms, which is very important to remember," Jemley said.  

Dutch Rewards gained 3.2 million members in its first year, with 500,000 in the fourth quarter alone. The Dutch Rewards program allows customers to earn points based on spending instead of the previous punch card system. Loyalty members receive five points for each dollar spent, and customers earn a complimentary drink and bonus points simply for enrolling.
