Hatco® Corporation, a proud employee-owned foodservice equipment manufacturer, is excited to announce its license and product supply agreement with Minnow Technologies, Inc. 

The future of foodservice takeout and delivery, as well as many other business applications, will all benefit from Minnow Technology products. These NEW MMP-8I Minnow Pods create an innovative frictionless solution for foodservice operations seeking to improve their carryout and delivery operations. 

“Customers will be drawn to an industry-leading carryout and delivery experience all around. Operators now have the ability to add a plug-and-play solution with advanced technologies to their business. We’re all very excited!” said Michael Whiteley, SVP of Hatco Corporation. 

Minnow chose to align with Hatco because of its strong market position globally and its world-class manufacturing abilities. The new agreement gives Hatco the ability to build these units for Minnow and license the design technology to add to their already successful line of Hatco heated and ambient Flav-R 2-Go® Locker Systems. 

Founded in 2017, Minnow is on a mission to create a better food delivery and pickup experience with its contact-free Pickup Pods, which keep food secure and people safe. Pickup Pods can be used anywhere that food is delivered or picked up. The result of a three-year, human-centered design journey, the Minnow Pickup Pod enables foodservice operators and commercial property managers to provide a safer and more convenient food experience. 

“This move unites Hatco’s world-class manufacturing capabilities, vast distribution channel, and decades of experience in the foodservice equipment industry with Minnow’s award-winning hardware design and cloud-based IoT software,” said Steven Sperry, Minnow’s CEO

The Minnow Pods conveniently hold multiple food orders with quick and secure access. Customers and delivery drivers can arrive, access their specific Pod, and leave without waiting in line or disturbing the flow of business. These systems can integrate into foodservice operations in a various ways, both standalone or fully integrated into POS systems.
