365 is committed to the growth and success of our clients. To honor Five Star Food Services hitting a major milestone, 365 team members including CEO, Joe Hessling and Marketing Manager, Jen Tonio traveled down to Chattanooga, TN to present the Five Star team with an award for opening their 500th MicroMarket.

This major accomplishment makes Five Star one of the nation’s first independent operators to surpass that threshold. Since installing its first MicroMarket in January 2011, Five Star has expanded the concept throughout Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.

“Congratulations to the entire Five Star team for surpassing the 500 market milestone! I’m sincerely proud of their hard work and dedication to this rapidly growing line of business.” said Five Star Vice President Mark Stephanos “Our MicroMarket team consistently performs at the highest levels to deliver on unsurpassed service and quality to our customers. 365 has been a valuable technology partner along the way as we’ve grown; virtually becoming an extension of our MicroMarket team.”

One thing that makes Five Star so successful is their ability to engage and excite their customers. From their robust promotions calendar, stringent product selection process and strategic merchandising plan, Five Star’s attention to detail and creativity leaves nothing to chance.

“The team at Five Star continues to lead the industry with their growth, innovation and operational efficiencies. “ said Hessling “The 500th MicroMarket location milestone is another example of their leadership.  Congrats, to Al and the team.”

The future is bright for both Five Star and 365 as they continue to lead the industry.
