The Loyal Cast app launched in 2018 as a restaurant invitation tool for mobile with an emphasis on customer retention and loyalty.
Realising the immediate need for restaurants to generate positive cash flow and to offer customers a touchless meal pick up experience, we pivoted Loyal Cast to serve both of these urgent needs.
Restaurants, craft breweries, cafés, and food trucks can now benefit from our easy to use online dashboard software and free mobile app to manage the essential aspects of prefix meal customer pick up.
Consumers looking for a touchless meal pick up option can purchase meal codes from participating restaurants and then select which prefix meals they would like to redeem their codes for through the app.
Consumer privacy, convenience, and reliability drive our core values. We are commited to deliver a state of the art mobile user experience that suits the needs of owners and their customers.

Born and raised in Florida, Jud attended vocational schools to learn the skill of auto repair, specifically for Mercedes-Benz. After half a decade enjoying the thrill of problem solving, but disliking busted knuckles, he traded his wrenches in for a computer. In the years that followed, Jud developed software to test vehicle components and received two patents at a Mercedes-Benz engineering facility in Jacksonville, FL. Jud made the decision to hang out his own shingle in 2014, founding Exclusive Origin, a software development studio to serve the automobile industry in development and manufacturing principles. During this period, Jud picked up the skills and knowledge to create web and mobile applications.
Anthony Giallourakis met Jud in 2017 with the request for bid in developing Loyal Cast software systems. After Loyal Cast chose Jud and his team, development began, and the core functionalities and first version of Loyal Cast web and mobile applications were completed. Since that time, Jud has been managing, maintaining and upgrading the software applications at the direction of Anthony and Michael.
