Essex Food Rewards

Essex Food Rewards is our loyalty and cashless payment app. Collect points with every purchase you make in selected outlets and use them towards your favourite treats! Cashless payment means you can pay in store and collect points in one easy transaction.

How it works

For every £1 you spend in Essex Food outlets you'll be rewarded five points. Each point is worth 1p and you can redeem your points as money off future transactions. If you decide to use our loyalty and cashless payment account you collect points and pay via your card every time you get your app scanned. More information about using Essex Food Rewards can be found via the app.

Download the app

You can start paying and earning points with Essex Food in four simple steps:

  1. visit the App Store or Google Play, search for 'Essex Food' and download the free app or sign up to our desktop version on the browser on your smartphone
  2. register your account
  3. choose from loyalty only or loyalty and cashless payment (you will need to enter your bank card details for this)
  4. start paying and collecting points in any of our outlets

Sign up via your browser 

You may find that you can't download the app due to your account being registered outside of the UK, but not to worry. You can register your account through your smart phone's browser and pay and collect your points in exactly the same way. Just sign up now!

Where you can use it:

Exclusive multi-buy deals

Hot drinks

All of our outlets offer an exclusive multi-buy deal on our selected hot drink range. If you grab your morning cuppa from campus, don't forget to tap your app and start building your points. After you've purchased nine hot drinks, you’ll get your 10th one absolutely FREE! So whether you lunch in Lakeside or brunch in Blues you know that every time you buy one of our selected hot drinks, you’re making your way towards that freebie.

We have launched a new Click and Collect service through the Essex Food Rewards app. You can also use our Essex Food app website to order. Order ahead and collect your lunch from our convenient collection point without having to queue! Your lunch will be freshly made when you order, just for you.
