MTY Food Group Logo

“We selected DataCandy due to their reputation for excellent customer service and their feature-rich platform. DataCandy will work hand-in-hand with our executive and marketing teams to ensure we increase enrollment as well as engagement. A highly effective loyalty program is a key part of our strategy for increasing sales and retaining customers.”

Familiprix logoFor a decade, Familiprix offered Beauty Zone, a loyalty program which did not resonate with all customers, applied to only part of the chain’s products and was complicated to sign up to. Familiprix partnered with DataCandy to debut FAMILIPLUS, which is more in line with the brand’s mission.

Jukebox Burgers logo

After scoring publicity on Food Network Canada and increasing sales by 52%, Jukebox Burgers & Bar Laitier invested little time or energy to maintain its newly gained foot traffic. By turning to the Datacandy loyalty platform, the restaurant managed to ensure repeat visits.

St. Matthews House logo

St. Matthew’s House was ready to take its customer engagement initiatives to the next level. By adopting a DataCandy loyalty program across its thrift store, coffee shop and car wash operations, the thrift store chain unlocked deeper insights about its loyalty members’ activity.

Mission Thrift Store Logo

Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce logo

Montreal burger restaurant Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce started with one location. As its popularity grew, so did its number of locations. DataCandy helped the brand alleviate its growing pains with a gift card solution that could be used at all its restaurants.


ALDO Group

They have proven to be responsive to our needs and mirror our business culture in terms of serving customers with the best possible products and services.

La Cage logo

La Cage, a sports-themed restaurant network with 50 restaurant locations, was craving more insights into its gift card sales. By trading its old solution for a DataCandy gift card program, La Cage scored a smooth integration and gained more visibility into its gift card data.

Booster Juice logo

“Everything about our gift card business is easier with the DataCandy platform. We can pull complex gift card reports on our own and review data with ease. The platform is so easy to use that two people can manage the entire Booster Juice program across the country.”

Steven Lee
Information Technology Director

Foodtastic logo

Foodtastic turned to DataCandy to streamline its gift card business across its 25 locations and 5 brands. The restaurant discovered that DataCandy’s automated gift card program was the key to doubling its sales and improving its brand recognition within the Montreal restaurant scene.

Shakespeare and Co. logo

Shakespeare and Co. offered paper vouchers but wanted to replace them with plastic gift cards to prevent misuse. After launching a DataCandy gift card program, the restaurant sold almost 800 gift cards in the first 10 days and 1,600 gift cards within the first month.

Pet food retailer logo

This large Canadian pet food retailer had to upgrade its card payment terminals across hundreds of store locations to maintain regulatory compliance. Using DataCandy’s gift card software, the retailer was able to increase its sales and elevate the customer experience.

Les Enfants Terribles logo

For years, Les Enfants Terribles offered diners paper gift certificates — a recipe for human error — and had no visibility into its gift certificate’s profitability. DataCandy helped Les Enfants Terribles modernize and automate its gift card business to improve operations and profits.
