NUTRIKIDS was founded in 1989 by Paul Moriarty. Paul's extensive background in software development and in-depth understanding of his customers' needs helped him create software applications for the foodservice industry. When the Menu Planning & Nutritional Analysis program was ready for release in 1990, he took it on the road, making stops across the country to show people how it would save them both time and money. It wasn't long before both foodservice professionals and the USDA were showing great interest in it.
Following the overwhelming success of our nutrient analysis software, we continued to answer our customers' needs by creating an entire suite of school foodservice software applications ranging from Back Office Management to our Point of Sale solution. We have also developed online nutrition education tools for parents, children, and educators. And we have established an unmatched reputation for training, customer service, and technical support.
Today, NUTRIKIDS is proud to have been purchased by over 8,600 school districts in all 50 states across the country. We've trained more than 12,000 school foodservice professionals nationwide. We are located in Rochester, New York, and staffed by 80+ highly dedicated customer support representatives, software developers, and trainers. We also have offices in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, and California.
On July 2, 2012, we announced that NUTRIKIDS is now part of Heartland Payment Systems, Inc. and will operate under the Heartland School Solutions team. Heartland Payment Systems is now the leader of software solutions for the K-12 market and is one of the largest payment processors in the country. This change allows us to continue to provide the outstanding service you have come to expect from us, as we look towards the future.
