2018 is a big year for Minute Menu Systems – it’s our 25th anniversary! This year has been a reflection on how far our company has come, the family it has created, and the relationships we have built with our customers over the past 25 years.

Our company was founded by Tom and Linda Clark in the early 1990s. They saw an opportunity to help sponsors and providers in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) by providing an automation process to reduce paperwork within their businesses. Tom and Linda put all of their time into their new software company and eventually found a handful of customers who were willing to spread the word about their new Minute Menu Systems software. After just a few years, the Clarks had built a nice, small family business together.

Over the years, we have significantly expanded our products to include so much more than could have been imagined when our founders started the business from their tiny home office. Now with an office of more than 30 employees, we have built a company that values the opportunity to work for such an important purpose – America’s children.

A huge thank you to our incredible clients – your loyalty and trust in us throughout the years allows us to push our boundaries and challenges us to strive for excellence in all that we do. Our clients are more than just clients, they are family. The relationships our company has built – and will continue to build – with each of our clients will always be our number one motivator for success.

Being in business for 25 years would not have been possible without the amazing people within our organization, which include former CACFP sponsors, center owners, and family childcare providers. We are incredibly thankful for the hard work and dedication from our employees and are so appreciative to be able to work with each of them every day. This milestone would not be possible without them.

As the story of our company continues, we honor our beginnings and the people who have made this company what it is today. We continue the legacy of finding ground-breaking ways to help children receive nutritious meals while supporting quality childcare for America’s working families.

We are proud of the progress we have made and are thrilled to see what the future holds for our company. Here’s to making an even bigger difference over the next 25 years!
