At a pivotal point in the chain’s development, Żabka wanted to equip its franchisees with the right digital tools to facilitate store management.

We had already performed a Design Sprint workshop with the stakeholders and built a prototype based on their insights.

Now, it was time to deliver a full-fledged store management application.

We had already designed the application and tested a clickable prototype with future users,

so we started the development process with a full understanding of the results we needed to achieve.

We set out to build the entire software infrastructure necessary to deliver a mobile app for both iOS and Android, complete with the backend, data layers, and integrations.


We knew the app would need to process enormous amounts of data,

so we decided to develop the backend in Node.js, a technology known for its exceptional performance when it comes to processing large amounts of data in real-time.

It turned out to be a great decision, as shortly after launch Frappka was already handing 70 million receipts every month.

On the frontend, we implemented an elegant solution for processing and aggregating the data to visualize it in an intuitive and aesthetically pleasing manner.


Thanks to Frappka, franchisees got to access and analyze all sales information

by time period (real-time, hour, day or month), product, category, or product availability in a given store.

They could also simulate their future income based on real data and have constant access to ongoing payment information.

The Frappka app was the starting point for Żabka’s ambitious digital transformation journey that we are proud to have supported over the years.


Frappka allowed Żabka’s franchisees to gain sales insights with features like:

  • Supported the Client in choosing the right features based on business requirements and user needs
  • Validated the clickable mock-up with Żabka’s franchisees
  • Built a working prototype that allowed the subsequent mobile app development phase to proceed quickly and with minimal risk
