The Mayflower’s sees online reviews skyrocket by 275% with Magic

Company Snapshot

With 3 locations, 2 in Sydney and 1 in Melbourne, The Mayflower’s honours the historic Mayflower pilgrims’ strength, courage and faith in liberty with their vision of innovative cafes.

They endeavour to make dining immersive and free the creative mind, and their collaborations with local and international artists helps them offer their customers a modern dining experience with a slice of nature, nestled within the chaos of urban living.


The Challenge

The Mayflower’s, a thriving café chain with 3 locations, faced a common challenge in the highly competitive hospitality industry: standing out among a sea of other businesses and attracting new customers. They recognised that having a strong online presence, including positive reviews, was key to driving new business and retaining loyal customers. However, with limited resources and a busy workflow, they struggled to consistently generate and manage reviews across different platforms to improve their overall rating.

They realised the need for a solution that would help them generate more reviews to increase their online presence and reputation, and one that would help them easily manage and respond to customer reviews to build better customer relationships and improve the overall customer experience.

Difficulty generating reviews

Despite having satisfied customers and a loyal customer base, The Mayflower found it challenging to encourage their customers to leave reviews on popular platforms like Google, Yelp, and Facebook. 

And without a steady stream of positive reviews, their online presence was impacted, which in turn affected their ability to attract new customers and retain existing ones.

Limited resources to manage reviews

As the business grew, The Mayflower found it increasingly challenging to keep up with the influx of reviews coming in from multiple platforms, and with limited resources, they also struggled to respond to each review in a timely and professional manner.



“Since we started using Magic for our cafe, our online reviews have skyrocketed! With the platform’s seamless integration into our workflow, we’ve seen a direct correlation between increased positive feedback and a 35% boost in bookings.” Christian L, Co-owner of The Mayflower
