inKind's Products & Differentiators
inKind provides restaurants with upfront capital in exchange for food and beverage credit, which is then sold to guests on the inKind app. The capital is debt-free, non-dilutive, nonrestrictive and the operator never has to pay inKind back. In fact, inKind offers the lowest cost of capital available to restaurants. The cost to service the capital is equivalent to the restaurant’s cost of food & beverage, typically 35-40% of sales, which only applies to guests who pay with the inKind app. In addition, inKind provides marketing services– email, SMS and social– to increase a restaurant’s discoverability, customer loyalty and traffic. Guests who use the inKind app visit restaurants 2.5x more often and spend more per visit.
