Handcrafted Beverage Chain Joins Leading Foodservice Cloud Platform for Supply Chain Intelligence Network
CHICAGO – April 26, 2023 - ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), the leading foodservice cloud platform for supply chain intelligence, welcomes Aroma Joe’s, one of the nation’s leading handcrafted beverage chains, to its network of over 275 chain operators across 105,000 restaurant locations, 1,300 distribution locations and 10,000 manufacturers.
Headquartered in South Portland, Maine, Aroma Joe’s is a major disruptor in the quick service coffee space. The chain’s proprietary coffee blends are craft roasted and Rainforest Alliance Certified which means they are sustainably grown and ethically sourced. And their signature AJ’s RUSH® Energy drinks have resonated with a new generation seeking their daily energy in new and unique beverages. With over 100 locations, Aroma Joe’s is looking to ArrowStream to put a supply chain visibility solution in place that allows them to scale and maintain their aggressive growth objectives moving forward.
“As we are beverage-led with a large majority of our business through drive-thru, our disposable cups are critical,” said Julie Visser, Chief Procurement Officer at Aroma Joe’s. “Through ArrowStream, we’ll have access to daily and accurate data on our product spend, inventory levels, and deliveries, allowing us to always have a real-time pulse of our supply chain. ArrowStream will improve our inventory risk identification allowing us to proactively take action and not worry about running out of the products or ingredients necessary to serve our customers.”
Behind the scenes, ArrowStream’s proprietary technology and data management team are transforming raw distributor and manufacturer data into clean, actionable data. A key part of the solution includes a multi-tier product categorization design which enables next-level category management and analytics. With complete visibility and actionable insights, risks are mitigated, costs are reduced, and supply chain operations become more efficient.
“Aroma Joe’s is committed to always improving and modernizing their supply chain through technology and we’re proud to be the strategic partner they chose,” said Marc Larson, VP of Sales at ArrowStream. “With guided analytics and auto-refreshed dashboards, Aroma Joe’s can focus their attention on business opportunities and supply chain threats instead of wrangling data. We’re excited to partner with Aroma Joe’s during such an important time of their business’s growth.”
Aroma Joe’s is the latest business to partner with ArrowStream, joining a growing list of customers, including Sweetgreen, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, and Mellow Mushroom, among others. ArrowStream’s solutions are developed specifically for the foodservice industry to help its operator customers evolve their supply chain team’s capabilities with a digital supply chain that enables them to manage food costs and ensure end-to-end visibility.
