In 2008, 365 Retail Markets was started in a
garage, with three hard working friends.
Since then, Joe Hessling has built his team to over 130 employees across the country, and expanded 365’s business to deliver the same great technology and service that we have in the US. However, Joe remained true to his Michigan roots by not only keeping the headquarters in Metro Detroit, but also making it the hub of our design, development, support and manufacturing of our world class point-of-sale hardware, software, and mobile technologies for the workplace.
With tens of thousands of payment centers in the marketplace, 365 has been expanding our offerings beyond MicroMarkets to encompass a broad range of self-service and payment products.
