Challama is a platform that allows businesses nationwide to more actively engage and reward their most loyal customers as they strive to become known as the "Best in Town", while attracting new loyal customers along the way.
Our goal is to provide businesses with more that just Facebook fans and Twitter followers, but instead, a real-life army of loyal supporters.
