Boston, Massachusettes, US – October 28, 2019
Fresh Ideas will be the first Food Service Management company in the US to implement cloud-based Jamix Kitchen Intelligence System for managing their food service operations. Fresh Ideas is a food service management company serving academic institutions, corporations, and senior living communities in the Midwest, South, and Southeast. The agreement with Jamix will cover 35 locations.
Foodservice Management magazine recently named Fresh Ideas one of the Top 50 food service companies in the US, and selected Fresh Ideas as one of the “6 Companies to Watch”.
Technology is one of the corner stones of innovation in Fresh Ideas and the company has been internationally featured for technology and forward-thinking. Innovation and future-forward thinking have been a priority in Jamix, as well, since the start of the company 30 years ago. True to Jamix’s heritage, it’s development engineers continue to publish almost 100 system enhancements and updates every year. Each enhancement or update simplifies and improves the user experience.
Fresh Ideas’ Chief Technology Officer, Bob Love has this to say about Jamix:
“From the first time we reviewed at the Jamix solution I thought to myself “Finally someone has created a solution for real culinarians vs. some tech that culinarians can try to use if they can figure out how to use it!”. Not only that but, the solution is built with enterprise proven technologies that can be configured for modern kitchens, techniques and methodologies. We were developing our own solution in frustration not being able to find a solution for our culinary teams. But, as soon as we reviewed the Jamix solution; we knew that we had to find a way to create a partnership so that we could get the solution in the hands of our culinary teams. Again, another magic moment; the team at Jamix (including the CEO) has been with us every step of the way answering every question and providing resources to help us with our decision process. There is no other solution that I am aware of that has a Master Chef as part of their team! “
In addition to satisfied customers, Jamix’s innovative approach was recently recognized with 2019 National Restaurant Association’s Kitchen Innovations Award. KI Award recipients reflect the trends and topics most important to hospitality today and showcase the future of the industry.
Jamix is the leading supplier of kitchen intelligence systems for professional kitchens with 30 years of experience. Building on Jamix’s long history, the company is now operating in the United States for a couple of years now.
”We are excited to start co-operation with a forward thinking food company like Fresh Ideas”, says Mikko Jaatinen, founder and CEO of Jamix.
