Case Studies

Coffee Company Brews Up Good Vibes With Custom Music Station

This coffee retailer is streaming a custom CloudCover station to more than 450 of their stores every day. They wanted to match their background music with their quirky, fun-loving brand. So we worked with them to build a custom music station that reflects their positive energy. After a full brand sound analysis by our professional music curation team, we hand-selected every song in their new station, which gets updated every week with new tracks. Now their employees are brewing up great coffee with a huge smile on their faces. And customers are loving it too.
