365 Retail Markets, the global leader in MicroMarket technology—offering a best-in-class point-of-sale platform for the vending, foodservice and hospitality industries—is pleased to announce that it has signed a long-term, exclusive contract with MicroMarket and vending powerhouse, Five Star Food Service.  

Five Star Food Service is arguably the largest independent operator of MicroMarkets in the world with over 1,000 locations operating in Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and Alabama. An early adopter of technology and matched with a close-knit management team, Five Star plans to expand both geographically to take advantage of underserved areas with MicroMarkets, as well as using newer technology like mobile and tablet to take their offerings to smaller offices and businesses.  

“Joe and the team at 365 have been true partners and a tremendous asset to our growth in micro markets, said Al Recher, President and Chief Executive Officer of Five Star Food Services. “We appreciate their commitment and ability to align with our organization and objectives. We see 365 as a core strategic partner as we continue to scale the business.”  

This contract allows both 365 and Five Star to focus on growth as they cement their reputations as dominant forces in the convenience services industry and widen the gap between their respective competition.  

“Having Five Star as an exclusive customer is a testament to the team at 365, said Joe Hessling, CEO of 365. “The Five Star team moves very quickly and demands excellence to keep up with their growth plans, the fact that they have put their trust in us for the next few years took a lot of dedication and collaboration. I am extremely proud of them and their accomplishments.”  

“We’re here to help operators succeed in this industry. Having the right exclusive partnership is important as it provides opportunity for growth, strengthens your business, allows you to achieve goals and more. 365 is more than just the technology in breakrooms across the world, we are strategic partners that help operators become successful," Hessling said.
