CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), the leader in end-to-end supply chain management software for the foodservice industry, announced another year of record growth in 2020, demonstrating the criticality of its technology to the foodservice supply chain during a year of unprecedented industry challenges. ArrowStream solutions played a pivotal role in mitigating disruptions to the restaurant industry caused by the coronavirus pandemic, prompting recognition across customers and industry publications, and adding to its record customer growth as companies sought to modernize their supply chain operations.
ArrowStream continued in its mission-critical role for customers throughout this market disruption, providing a single, integrated platform for data visibility and supply chain management that allows teams to monitor inventory levels and supply risks, reduce supply chain costs and protect their brand quality. During the year, ArrowStream added 14 new restaurant chains to its family of customers, including QSCC, Foodbuy, IPC/SUBWAY, Brinker International, and Menchies Frozen Yogurt, among others. The ArrowStream industry network now exceeds 250 restaurant chains, 8,000 suppliers and 1,000 distribution locations, establishing a platform for collaborative operations and collective innovation that is changing the industry.
“Having been in foodservice for over 20 years, I am proud to be part of an industry that is so resilient with amazing people who have come together to find creative solutions in seemingly impossible circumstances,” said Jeff Dorr, President at ArrowStream. “Our customers never give up when thinking about how to serve their communities in some of the most difficult times we’ve seen. It inspires us to adapt just as quickly to meet the needs of our customers and continue to lead the industry in supply chain innovation.”
Following the recent acquisition by Tailwind Capital (“Tailwind”), a middle market private equity firm focused on growth-oriented investments, ArrowStream plans to further expand its innovation in 2021 with Tailwind’s support, accelerating the addition of new solutions for its customers.
