"We wanted to give our customers a faster and easier way to pay for their meals."

Brown Bag, Inc., Washington, DC's premier provider of healthy salads, sandwiches and more to DC's harried lunch crowds and corporate catering needs, is launching a new way to pay this week in all of its DC locations. Powered by LevelUp, their new app will allow patrons to pay for their breakfast and lunch orders with their phones.

Members of Brown Bag's Loyalty Program get even more benefits. Not only will their checkouts be quick and painless, their loyalty rewards will be automatically entered and easily tracked through the app. Current Loyalty members will receive an instant $2 discount the first time they use their new Brown Bag app in-restaurant. When they've accrued $99 in loyalty points, they will earn an additional $9 to spend in any DC Brown Bag location. If you're already a Loyalty member and wondering if your previously accrued Loyalty points will transfer over, not to worry! You won't lose them; they'll be automatically linked to your account through your phone.

Other features the app includes: a full menu, list of Brown Bag locations (as well as maps and directions), and easy access to your Rewards account. Asked why he decided to offer this app to customers, Founder and President of Brown Bag, Inc., Erich Fuldner, replied, "We wanted to give our customers a faster and easier way to pay for their meals, first of all. DC is a city that moves fast and so do our customers. We advertise 'cuisine on the fly', and we try to deliver healthy meals as quickly as possible to all of those working and living in the DC area, so they can get on with their days. Our new app puts everything at their fingertips: the menu, their Loyalty Rewards account balances, as well as Loyalty accrual benefits, and fast checkout. We think people are going to be very happy with the way this app works for them."

If you're interested in downloading Brown Bag's free app, simply download it from the iPhone App Store or Google Play, and go into your nearest Brown Bag for a meal that's even faster than their usual "on-the-fly".
