Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
365 Retail Markets, a foodservice technology company, will be honored at an awards ceremony during the tenth annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business event on May 6th, 2014 in East Lansing, Michigan.
365 Retail Markets is the industry leader for MicroMarket technology, providing the hardware, software and support needed for their operators to successfully manage their MicroMarkets. A MicroMarket is an unmanned convenience store typically located inside a work environment. Rather than transactions being handled by a cashier, however, users scan items themselves and pay through a self-checkout Kiosk.
Over the past three years, 365 has experienced rapid growth – increasing their market share, creating over 50 Michigan jobs and eclipsing $10 million in annual revenue for 2013.
“We are proud to be a Michigan-based company,” Joe Hessling, Founder & CEO of 365 Retail Markets, said. “Small businesses like 365 and the other awardees are what will continue to grow the Michigan economy and provide jobs for Michigan workers.”
Companies making it into the “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” list are a remarkable group of second-stage companies defined as having 6 to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in annual revenue, working capital from investors or grants. These companies form the backbone of Michigan’s economy, representing all regions of the state and a diverse range of industries. Companies like 365 Retail Markets are known for their exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, innovation and sustainable competitive advantage.
Winners were selected by Michigan-based judges from the banking, economic development, entrepreneurship development and venture capital communities.
