Our Use of Tablet-Based Technology‘s Mary Stroka recently wrote an article on how Five Star Food Service utilizes Tablets in micro markets.

“As the micro market industry grows, operators have  been able to find cost-efficient ways to provide services to smaller offices.

For instance, one such company is Five Star Food Service, which has its headquarters in Chattanooga, TN. The operator has found success in using tablet technology in its services to smaller clients.
