Dear Minute Menu Clients,
Our founder, Tom Clark, has retired after more than 26 years building solutions to support the CACFP and childcare. He remains an advocate for the CACFP community and committed to the long-term success of our company and our customers. Those of you who attend CACFP conferences are sure to see him there over the coming year, and possibly beyond. His retirement preparation included a long transition of responsibilities to ensure continued success for the CACFP, Minute Menu, and our devoted clients.
Minute Menu Systems is proud to introduce our new CEO, Matt Wilson. Matt brings over a decade of leadership experience, including service in the US Army and advanced leadership training in the manufacturing and engineering space. After completing his MBA, Matt was drawn to Minute Menu’s larger mission supporting the CACFP and the childcare industry. Like many Americans, Matt grew up in the childcare system, and is thrilled to be in a position to support the people who directly and indirectly care for the children of working Americans.
Matt joins Natalie Clark, who will continue in her long-term role as Chief Operating Officer and Board Member, to complete our executive team. We know that Matt’s enthusiasm for our company’s mission and his diverse background will drive our company to new levels of accomplishment and success.
Partnership with Alpine Investors
As a part of this transition, Minute Menu Systems is very proud to announce our new partnership with Alpine Investors. We are very excited for this opportunity to join forces to address the needs of the childcare and CACFP marketplace.
