Founded in August 1999, Java House aims to introduce gourmet coffee drinking culture in Kenya, but has since evolved into an American diner style restaurant. As one of the leading coffee brands in Africa, Java House has grown to have outlets in 14 cities across 3 East African countries (Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda). Java House has also gone on to birth three sister brands - Planet Yogurt, a healthy and tasty frozen yogurt store, 360 Degrees Pizza, a casual dining restaurant, and Kukito, a uniquely Kenyan modern fast food brand.

Challenge: Knowing What Consumers Say About The Brand
Maintaining a brand as stellar as Java House is no small task, and it was necessary for Java House to have a robust social listening tool that could be their eyes and ears when it came to what consumers had to say about their brand.
Managing the brand's different social media accounts was also a priority for Java House, who have over 20 social media accounts. Having an all-in-one platform that makes publishing content easier and less time consuming was how Meltwater effectively addressed this need.
"My experience with the Meltwater Team has been great; they are hands on with us when we need them to be. Anytime we need something done, it's done immediately. Nadine (Client Success Director) follows up with us, and we feel taken care of."
