Fiscal 2014 Revenues: $242,000,000
A pair of acquisitions in 2014 has helped boost CulinArt’s business and geographical reach. In July it acquired Host America Inc., strengthening its foothold in the New England marketplace. Then, after several years of mutual courtship, it sealed the deal on the purchase of Arizona-based Sacco Dining Services, adding a fourth regional office to the company in Scottsdale.
The past year also saw CulinArt entering a partnering agreement with Karp Resources to enhance its sustainability programs and with Mercury Payment Systems to pilot and launch its StoreCard mobile payment solution, which is now in place with two large tech clients and has become part of CulinArt’s standard technology solutions portfolio.
CulinArt’s first food truck launched last September, delivering items like Korean rice bowls, street tacos and specialty Black Angus burgers to associates of a prominent technology client that has a limited onsite kitchen and serving areas.
Under the leadership of its new culinary development director, veteran restaurateur and chef Peter Klein, CulinArt relaunched its Regional Chefs Network and increased participation to some 60 chefs nationwide.
