This summer, Clover took to the streets, traveling around the country on our Main Street Momentum tour.
Since June, we’ve visited small businesses in Nashville and New York, Portland and Philly, introducing our solutions and handing prizes, giveaways, and more surprises along the way. We recognized 40 Clover Achievers with $500 prizes in 84 events on our 12,000-mile tour in over 20 states. That’s over, 48 gas stops! Our road trip had brought us some wonderful moments, and as we wrap up our tour this week, we wanted to share some of our favorite highlights.
June 12 – Port St Lucie, FL: The tour got underway at Clover Park, the Mets baseball training stadium in Port St. Lucie, Florida. We presented the Clover 2021 achievement award to Justin Kilmer, owner of Mow-tivated Lawn Care service, who started his business knocking on doors to recruit customers and has since grown to a team of 22. We also got to spend some quality time with Clover merchants and hear how they’ve survived the pandemic (with a little help from Clover). The first stop? A total home run.
June 20 – Lebanon, TN: We visited Ross Chastain, 8th generation watermelon farmer and driver of the Nascar #24 Clover car! Also had a chance to meet some Clover fans before heading to Nashville for a heart-pounding Ally 400 race. Of course, no stop in Tennessee would be complete without a stop at a distillery — so we headed to Wheeler’s Raid Distillery! Owner Ryan Thomas was the recipient of a Clover achievement award worth $500. Cheers!
Finger-lickin’ good: DAS BBQ, Atlanta, GA: Our Main Street Momentum tour wanted a taste of the south, so we stopped to visit some friends in Atlanta, Georgia: DAS BBQ. DAS BBQ mixes old school recipes with new school flair for a mouthwatering menu and great experience. The team at DAS BBQ has been with us since Day One, so naturally, we had to show our appreciation with a little cash.
July 7 – Elizabeth, NJ: We met the self-crowned “Clover Queen” Yaquelin Suriel who was in the middle of signing the bakery across the street from Clover’s pop-up with Santander. She and the team in Elizabeth, New Jersey had a busy day meeting with existing Clover merchants and recruiting new ones to join our community.
Epic stop at the Football Hall of Fame, Canton OH: After making our way north, we headed west to Canton, Ohio and the Pro Football Hall of Fame! Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk shared how he went from selling popcorn to breaking records in the NFL. It was a memorable stop and one that we were excited to share with all of you.
July 16 – Milwaukee, WI: Milwaukee was a BIG stop for us. We kicked off our time in the new city with a pop-up booth at Restaurant Depot, where we met tons of new customers and existing Clover clients. Milwaukee merchants broke the tour record thus far for the number of new referrals, with existing Clover customers raving about our products to new customers. What an amazing community to be a part of — thanks to everyone who came out to visit our booth!
Next stop: The launch of Clover Station Solo at the Fiserv Forum. Have you met the Clover Station Solo yet?
The event featured an award-winning panel of leaders in the hospitality industry — including celebrity chef Aaron Sanchez — talking about how their work has changed in light of the pandemic, and how technology like Clover helps them stay nimble. Check out the video for more behind-the-scenes from our summer event and to see what Station Solo can do.
The big one: the $1000 giveaway!
Before we wrap up, we had one more big giveaway to host.
A big thank you to all the merchants and partners who came out to support the Main Street Momentum tour. We loved meeting all of you in person and getting the chance to help your business grow.
