Introducing the new Flyer Enterprises App!

Introducing the New Flyer Enterprises App!

In Spring 2016, FE IT employees Abby Schatzman (current CIO) and myself – Katie Deneen (VP Digital Marketing) pitched the idea to develop the corporation’s first mobile application at the Flyer Enterprises’ Business Plan Competition. The idea won and received a lot of interest. To make the dream a reality, the IT team spent the next year developing the app.

Today, we are pleased to announce that the mobile app is now available to download on iOS in the AppStore allowing customers to browse menus, take advantage of  promotions, earn rewards, and more!

Personally, using the  new capabilities of the Flyer Enterprises app  I’ve managed to save myself money, time, and even scored a taste of some delicious new products! I use the app everyday to stay up to date on my favorite divisions, keep track of my reward punches, respond to real-time notifications, and much more!  Now with the app available you can do the same.

Here are some examples of how you can use the app daily:

Access and Track your Reward Cards

With the Flyer Enterprises App, you can digitally punch a reward card for all divisions all in one place. Say goodbye to those paper cards that always seem to disappear! To view rewards cards, go to an individual division and select Rewards. Select a rewards card and start gaining points. Its that easy!

Stay Up to Date  on Divisions with Promotion Notifications

You can now gain easy access to FE discounts and annoucements by enabling push notifications.  Be the first to be notified of:

  • Discounts on special items for each division
  • Monthly featured items. Example: In August the Blend has the Sugar and Spice Latte
  • Chances to enter raffles for cool prizes or even free trips…Did someone say a free trip to Daytona??
  • Changes in store operating hours

View Division Menus, Anywhere Anytime

Within each division page, you can see menus before you even arrive! You can even view ingredients, prices, and descriptions of each product.

Get to Know the New CEO: Erica Roux!

1. Could you give us a short background of yourself?15Roux

I am from Saint Louis. I have 2 sisters and I consider myself very family oriented. In high school I played soccer and field hockey .I love to run for fun and be active! I am a double major- Finance and Operations and Supply Management.

2. What was your role in Flyer Enterprises before you were hired as CEO? What did you accomplish?

January of my freshmen year I was hired as a sales associate at The Blend. Later, I applied for a management position. I was promoted to a manager at The Jury Box! Then junior year when I applied for the executive team I landed the position of President of Dining Services Joint Venture. As President of Dining Services Joint Venture, I worked with the managers at The Chill to create a healthier menu. All in all, at each position that I have had at Flyer Enterprises I work to provide a better experience for everyone around me. I am not afraid of change.

3. How do you see the company changing, and how do you see yourself creating that change?

Overall, I want there to be more excitement and involvement from all Flyer Enterprises employees- executives to sales associates. I want everyone to strive for more everyday. I would also like executive team to play more of a resource and leader role to make sure that our vision is executed.

4. Is there anybody in your life that you look up to for inspiration?

One person that I look to for inspiration is one of my old managers at the Jury Box who graduated two years ago. She was involved in everything and gave her all in each involvement. There was a passion in her that brought a special light that everybody wanted to be around. 

5. If you could be any animal what you be?

A bald eagle! They can be fearless, but they also have the capability of seeing so much and obtaining so many different viewpoints!
