An open letter to customers, partners, and friends
You may have heard that we recently changed our name from WhenToManage to PeachWorks. Names matter, so this change was not undertaken lightly. We were inspired. Inspired by all the innovations we see happening in the restaurant landscape – and all the innovations that are still to come. Innovations that are being shaped by next-gen technology.
Why did we change our name? (A name change and a game change!)
Our goal over the past decade has always been to bring you the very best in restaurant software. We are incredibly excited about what we see as the next technology revolution in our new restaurant operating system, Peach. With new and more powerful cloud-based applications that work the way you do, Peach is changing the landscape of restaurant and food service management. Applications that become so seamless, so helpful, and so second nature that restaurant managers will wonder what to do with all the extra time they save – and why it wasn’t always this easy!
We chose this time to change our name – to better reflect this vision and our growth as a company. Creating a true restaurant operating system is the just the beginning of what’s next.
A few introductions …
Our new name also coincides with a few important organizational changes and new investments. We welcome Mark Symonds to the team as our new CEO. Mark comes to us with some serious credentials in the software-as-a-service / cloud software arena. As chief product officer, Jeff Schacher, our founder, will focus his considerable expertise on expanding the Peach platform of tools and applications. New investments from Allos Ventures, Huron River Ventures, Arsenal Venture Partners, and Invest Detroit are supporting the scale up of sales, marketing, and product development activities.

What will never change!
For our customer, partners and friends, our commitment to your success remains our single most important objective. We thank you for trusting us with your business, and for your continued collaboration and support.
We look forward to showing you what’s new in cloud solutions for recipe and inventory management, POS analytics, and staff scheduling solutions for your restaurant, hospitality, specialty retail and food service operations.
