Jonas Software has a 15+ year history of providing mission critical software solutions to customers in food-related industries, such as foodservice providers, restaurants, liquor stores, wineries, and food processors. Since our initial food-related acquisition in 2007, Jonas has subsequently acquired another 14 companies in the various food-related verticals.
Similar to our story with private clubs, construction, fitness, and many more industries, Jonas Software has developed a deep understanding of food-related verticals and the best practices that can be used to succeed as an operator and acquirer of software companies serving these industries.
Foodservice was the third vertical Jonas Software entered via acquisition after focusing on the private club and construction industries in our early years. Since then, we have entered another 30+ industries around the world through our 145+ acquisitions of vertical market software companies.
To celebrate our success in acquiring and operating software companies focused on food-related industries, we wanted to highlight the 15 amazing companies we own in the space.

Why is Jonas a Good Home For Your Vertical Market Software Company:

Jonas Software’s strategy is to acquire, manage and build industry-specific software solutions. We like to talk about our ABCs in terms of how we are unique:

  • Autonomy – we have a decentralized structure and do not seek to take over the day-to-day operations of our companies.
  • Buy & Hold Forever – since our beginnings in 2003, Jonas has never sold a company it has acquired. This is our software for life promise – selling to Jonas means you have found a permanent home.
  • Culture of Sharing Best Practices – we place a high value on sharing our experiences on how to run great software companies with those who are a part of the Jonas family through educational events, webinars, etc.


Let’s Hear Some Testimonials

Kim Goldberg Profile Image

“I was able to experience the autonomy firsthand with my time at Computrition. It truly is a decentralized, but really supportive model. We continue to keep our fun and focused culture and independence. [As COO of Computrition] if we had a company that was struggling, we didn’t talk about selling them, we talked about helping them. We could all pull together and see, where did they need help? What did they need? What could we do to bring their success back and working hand-in-hand with those businesses to improve the areas where they needed us? Best practices are probably the largest focus for me because that tied into a lot that I did as an integrator.

Kim Goldberg

Group Leader (Former COO), Jonas Construction Software (Formerly Computrition)

“Jonas continues to expand their presence in the food manufacturing software industry around the world. They recognize both the value of our technology, and the tenure and vertical focus of our team. I know Hellenic will continue to grow and prosper under their stewardship.”

Terry Carter

Managing Director, Hellenic Systems Ltd

Matthew Gatter Headshot

I chose Jonas because I felt that they had the expertise to take MCR to the next level. I also liked the decentralized model, and I felt that MCR would be able to operate as a separate entity within the Jonas organization, and it would enable us to keep the same management team in place, which I thought would give us continuity. And that was important for the team.”
