PROMOTED: Ace Coffee

2019-05-16T12:07:26+03:00May 16, 2019|4 Comments

It’s time to ace it!

In the past couple of years Kuwait has grown tremendously in the food and beverage market, and the more it does the more there is a need to deliver a higher quality. With third wave coffeeshops popping up all over Kuwait City, finding fresh roasted coffee that also tastes great was surprisingly elusive. Therefore, we decided to do something about it. We did not set out to change the world, just a small corner of it.

Ace was founded in 2017 out of the mere enjoyment of good coffee, our deep love towards coffee inspired us to open a coffeeshop that offers a great fresh ground coffee outside the dense area of Kuwait City. We started up with Mahboula and recently opened two new branches in Jabriya and Sabah Al Salem. We offer a great quality of coffee, good food and an exceptional customer service in a cozy environment. At ACE we are devoted to high standards of quality and simplicity, offering a beautiful aesthetic in an intimate homey vibe for our visitors’ daily coffee run.

Since its inception, we are aiming to inspire more sustainable communities in Kuwait. Being a sustainable coffeeshop we collaborate with a number of initiatives to come full circle, whether it’s sourcing our coffee from local roasters in order to ensure freshness or donating coffee compost for it to be consumed as an eco-friendly natural fertilizer to make use of our ground coffee waste, we are dedicated to supporting our community. We also engage in coffee education and making coffee equipment/tools accessible for coffee making at home.

Ace is simply an intimate cozy spot for people to stop for a good cup of coffee and a little more. This place is made for you, to take a break and unwind while enjoying a tasty cup of fresh roasted coffee and a snack. We care about the process as much as the outcome, and we are very transparent about it. We follow a sustainable kind of approach and we put an effort in everything we do. Our care extends to the community we operate in, we support it, nurture it and act responsibly towards it. If you enjoy having a good time and appreciate a good cup of coffee and socialize then you’re the one!

Sponsored: Its Time To Get Addicted With Japanese Curry!

2018-12-10T20:30:45+03:00Dec 10, 2018|0 Comments

We all know Japanese food is associated with sushi and a whole lot of seafood! But have you ever tried the Japanese curry? It is one of the most popular street food dishes in Japan and is commonly served in three main forms: curry rice and curry udon!

Meme’s Curry is the first Japanese curry house in Kuwait and has over 3 branches spread across the country where we all love food! With new places popping up everyday, we generally miss out on a few gems. Meme’s Curry is the place where the recognition and identification value is based on the Japanese Street Food Concept.

We take you to the urban-cool vibes of the Japanese where modern interior meets local food. Our fusion of providing a cozy atmosphere to dine in and inviting you to blend into our space is all what makes Meme’s Curry restaurant a place to remember. And did I even mention the food? If you are a fan of flavors, you need to visit the place!

Some of our most popular dishes are the Meme Monster with an add on of Shehab’s way, the Ramen and our special dish which is called the Meme’s special. The Meme’s Fries are worth digging in and so are the waffles! Our favorite sesame sauce is drizzled on top of our Chicken Stingers and Ebi Stingers. They pair up as the perfect appetizer to your main dish.

We have recently collaborated with Sayood to come up with a very creatively visualized concept for our Meme Curry fans.

Take advantage of the great weather Kuwait has for the next couple of months and enjoy our outdoor seating at Mall 30 in our Abu Hasaniya branch. The interactive and cozy vibe of The View Mall in Salmiya is very welcoming and Al-Rehab Complex in Hawally offers a very comfortable and laid back atmosphere. We have something unique to offer you in all our 3 branches and cant wait to expand in K-town and across the GCC with more Meme Curry outlets.

At Meme’s Curry, we constantly aim to improve and make our customers’ experience better each time they visit. We celebrated and rejoiced our 5th anniversary in October 2018. We are so happy and proud of the customer fan-base we have created over the years and would like to thank each and every loyal customer who visited our store and made us what we are today. Thank You!

Sponsored: SRVME – A solution for all your maintenance needs

2018-11-27T16:49:48+03:00Nov 27, 2018|11 Comments

SRVME is not your ordinary maintenance app. SRVME is planning to change how the service industry works.

SRVME, an on-demand service app is here to get rid of all of the inconveniences of maintenance work and make your life so much easier. Instead of asking your friends for an electrician that they know, waiting for their reply, then waiting to see if they even have the guy’s number saved, SRVME connects you – in less than 5 minutes! – to the most trusted service providers.

With SRVME, we can ensure that you will receive reliable, trustworthy and high-quality service as all of the SRVME service providers have undergone a thorough assessment process.

Apps promise a lot these days. We know. All kinds of services can be received at the click of a button. BUT, have you heard of something similar to this – SRVME’s price per hour approach.

Price per hour approach
Usually, maintenance businesses in Kuwait operate by charging a fee “per item”. So the more the items fixed, the bigger the invoice. At SRVME we found a solution to this. We charge all of our services at a set “price per hour”. Try it yourself and see the difference.

Let us give you an example, assume you do an annual maintenance for your A/C unit which costs you around 10-15 KD per unit, five units would cost you 50-75 KD. But, with the “price per hour” approach you would only pay per hour worked! Five units would take three hours to clean, leaving you with a cost of only 27KD.

Love it already? We’ve got more.

Trackable Handyman
You are able to track the service provider through the app. So, you can check his exact location (just like Uber)

Online payment
Flexibility in the payment method, you can pay by KNET, Credit Card or Cash. You can also save your Credit Card information.

Warranty Included
Something went wrong? Claim your warranty through the app within 30 days.

Rating Provided
Do you like the work of the technician? Give him 5 stars and he’ll be the first to get the notification for your next order.

Saved History
No need to keep hold of printed receipts, all your receipts are saved on the app.

How to use the app?

So, let’s say you wanted to fix your A/C or satellite, all you need to do is:

– Share your location
– Choose your required service
– Book a date and time at your convenience
– Select your preferred online payment method (cash/Knet/credit card)
– Confirm the service and we’ll be ready to serve you!

What services do we offer you?
A/C maintenance
Satellite maintenance
Plumbing services
Electrical maintenance
NEW! Interior painting
NEW! Carpentry
We will be adding additional services every month.

Sponsored: Cybersys Point Of Sale System

2018-11-20T12:28:12+03:00Nov 20, 2018|4 Comments

Choosing a Point Of Sale (POS) system can seem like a big task and its one of the most important business decisions when starting out. With so many options and different costs for systems, it is hard to choose. Below is a list of 10 features every POS system should have.

1. Inventory Tracking: At a basic level a POS system needs to tell you how much you to have in stock so you know what you have at the store without counting every item. Alongside this feature, it should have a detailed log of what caused the inventory to change (Such as having a sale or receiving a PO).

2. Sales Tax Tracking (if it is compatible in your country): The only things that are certain in life is death and taxes. If your POS system cannot track tax; then it will be hard to pay your taxes each month. It should also be able to handle different types of taxes for items. Depending on the state certain items (such as food in different nations) are taxed differently than others.

3. Advanced Reporting: Reporting should be included to help you make good purchase decisions. The reporting needs to tell you which items are selling well and which aren’t. There should also be reports to see which categories and brands are selling well also.

4. Customer Tracking: Many businesses will find it beneficial to track the customers they get. This is very useful for email marketing, sending receipts, and just knowing who your best customers are.

5. Emailing and printing of receipts: Modern POS systems should be able to email receipts and print them on a receipt printer or even a letter sized printer. The more advanced ones should be able to print from any device such as a phone or tablet. Generating a receipt from a sale should be a fast process when you evaluate POS systems.

6. Credit card processing (including EMV/chip processing): In this day and age many customers prefer to pay by credit card or debit card. If your system cannot accept modern payment; your customers will be frustrated that they can’t pay with credit card.

7. Employee accounts and permissions: If your business takes on employees you will want to give them access to your system, but you will want to limit their ability to change pricing and view reporting. A modern system should provide the ability to set up custom permissions so the employee can only do what is allowed.

8. E-Commerce integration: Many customers love the convenience of shopping online. A good pos system will allow you to sell online. This is a great revenue stream for businesses and selling online should be included.

9. Purchase Orders: Generating purchase orders can save time when it comes to reordering product. A good POS system should make this easy based on stock level and supplier. This can save a business a lot of time to be able to generate these fast.

10. Cash Management: It is important to make sure your cash is correct in the register and the employees aren’t stealing from you. A good cash management system is important when choosing a POS system.

Picking a POS system and starting a business is hard enough. The list above should help you narrow down what you need to focus on when picking a system. Cybersys Point Of Sale has all of these features and is very affordable and easy to set up.
