How is your coffee shop different?
Is it the roast of the beans? The inviting selection of pastries? The chairs and couches? Music can make your store different and memorable. What’s playing in your coffee shop says a lot about your brand, your employees, the customers who visit, and the kind of experience you want your guests to have.
The fact is, no two businesses are exactly alike, so why play the same ordinary corporate music or satellite radio that gets played in cars, offices, or grocery stores? Sound just like Starbuck’s…or completely different.
Custom Channels is different because we stream music directly into your coffee shop without satellite dishes, downloads or discs. We have more fully licensed songs available than many common music services. And we love music!
Won’t just any music service or radio be OK?
Think about the coffee and food you serve? Why not simply go to the grocery store, buy a can of ground coffee, brew and sell that? Because it’s ordinary, commonplace, and doesn’t set you apart. Same with music. Music sets the tone, vibe, and atmosphere for the superb coffee, tea, drinks and food people love. Be distinctive! Be bold!
And what about your employees? Want them listening to an ordinary, repetitive music mix all day every day? Not at all.
Think you can do-it-yourself?
Some shop owners like to play their own music meaning they’re using an iPod, iTunes, iPad, CD’s or Pandora. It’s a lot more work, with songs that often don’t fit or are inappropriate; and it’s not always legal. Plus, you’re avoiding the required licensing and copyright fees. See our blog on DIY music.
That’s why we created ReMix. Many DIYers have switched to Custom Channels’ ReMix so they can be hands-on creating and managing their playlist, yet be legal with licensed music with superior audio quality streamed to their store.
