Blanket is a work management solution and communication tool for multi-unit restaurant operators. The product has been built with a very simple interface that is not only easy to understand, but extremely powerful, and all with real time functionality. From food safety to repairs and maintenance, Blanket helps organize and execute everyday work for the multi-unit restaurant operations. Streamlining employee capital during and after the coronavirus pandemic has never been more prevalent.
“I truly could not think of a better strategic partner to be working with than Aurify Brands. The positive culture they have built within their organization is what initially drew me to them, but it is their sophistication as multi-unit operators that ultimately won me over. I couldn’t be more excited for the next phase of my company as part of their portfolio.”
