We’re here to give local businesses the upper hand

You don’t need to be a Starbucks or McDonald’s to run a hyper-efficient business with sophisticated systems and healthy margins. Our mission is to equip local food businesses with the tools you need to thrive.

60 % of food businesses fail 
within their 
first year

And less than 20% make it past their 5th birthday. The main culprits? Inefficient operations, a lack of business acumen, and a reluctance to adapt to new technology. But fret not, we’re here to help you avoid all these common pitfalls.

Tell me how!

Hi, we’re Jess & Puteri 👋

The first time our paths crossed, we immediately bonded over our penchant for flakey pastries, milky bubble teas, and people-watching at cafes. Our shared love of food and sustainability eventually led us to start a company together.

Savvie was born out of our passion to support local businesses. We’re here to be champions for local chains, mom and pop shops, and holes in the walls - because we believe that, with the right support, every hole in the wall has the potential to eventually become a dominating market presence.  

That’s why we make sophisticated technology affordable, accessible, and easy-to-use for independent players. Our dream is to help food businesses everywhere grow by optimizing operations through our AI-based digital assistant.
