WHAT WE DO
LoyalFree is a mobile phone app loyalty scheme which is used to collect rewards at local independent businesses. This allows businesses gain from customer analytics and brand exposure.
Building the business in our home town of Leicester has given us access to many great startup initiatives at the universities and through other institutions in the city.
