our story

springbig is no newcomer to loyalty marketing, our founders have over 20 years of experience in creating loyalty rewards programs for retail businesses. In fact, they were some of the original pioneers of retail loyalty marketing. CEO, Jeffrey Harris founded InteQ over 20 years ago, a company that took loyalty marketing from simple punch card programs in coffee shops to technologically advanced marketing tools at the forefront of some of the country’s biggest companies. Companies like Adidas, Reebok, and Citi Bank. After years of experience in big-box retail, our founders saw tremendous opportunity in the underserved cannabis industry and decided to bring advanced loyalty programs, an essential marketing tool in such a competitive industry, to cannabis dispensaries and brands.
