365 is thrilled to work with such a pioneering group that has helped turn Company Kitchen into an outstanding company that it is today. 365 is also looking forward to working with hundreds of new customers and take advantage of the premier customer engagement, dining and self-service technology the Company Kitchen team has built.

“We are thrilled to work with other pioneers within the MicroMarket industry. There is no question that under one roof we will now have the most experienced and talented team in our space.

I have been with CK for 8 years and am delighted to continue utilizing the technology that we created and being able to innovate with 365 and their employees. We have a wonderful customer base that will continue to receive the amazing services they have known from CK and will only benefit from the expertise within 365. I look forward to growing with our new team and strategically helping the industry flourish.” Cory White, CK Director of Operations.
