As Menuat's banker, I can attest to Jeff's attention to detail and genuine focus on growth with a defined strategy to accomplish those objectives. Often times, entrepreneurs fail to take the time to understand the "numbers". Jeff excels in this regard, and it will serve him well in taking Menuat to whatver levels he desires. I look forward to accompanying and consulting Jeff on his journey to great success.

I have worked directly with Jeff for the past 4 years and have to come to respect him as an outstanding technical and business leader with a strong passion for success. Jeff is a dedicated Family person, does the right things for his people and company and has a unique ability to connect with customers regardless of their technical experience. Jeff has the highest level of integrity, works very hard and is a natural entrepreneur. I'm very proud of how Jeff has led Menuat to cash flow positive this past year. He has a great vision for the future.

Jeff is an extremely creative, passionate entrepreneur with a stellar team who are executing with laser focus. Their product, Hatchware, offers an immediate, crystal clear value proposition in a growing market that's just really being explored and offers enormous opportunity.

I am pleased to write a recommendation for WeAreCharette and Hatchware. This new product is exciting and potentially transformative. Even more, this creative team is inventive, hard working, and forward looking. I have seen their creativity in action on numerous occasions and witnessed the overwhelmingly positive response that they've received for their work. I can say without reservation that it would be a wise decision to back WeAreCharette's latest offering--Hatchware.

Hatchware is an exciting concept with incremental potential that in my view has still yet to be discovered. And I believe the team there has the creative and technical capacity to develop a unique product with a strong value proposition. I’ve known Jeff and Emily for a few years now and found them to be very talented. And a product in the early stage of its lifecycle demands that there’s a team that listens to the market and responds with key innovations. My belief is that they can accomplish that. Additionally, they have demonstrated an understanding of the business model and can articulate the ROI for customers (which in this case, the intangible value may far outweigh the short term $$ impact for customers). Hats off to Hatchware for a great start to what should be an exciting business that could change how consumers/patrons buy!

Our Hatchware Digital Menu Board has immensely improved our customer experience while facilitating our need for adaptability and flexibility as a boutique coffee shop with ever changing offerings. A displayed menu board is oftentimes incongruous with the ambiance of a shop, due to the necessity of conveying as much information as possible while keeping items up-to-date. Making changes to our previous chalk based menu was laborious and time consuming. The digital menu board solves these conundrums, allowing for the efficient and clear communication of our menu items with a customized style and background that is very much complimentary to our overall theme. Indeed, it has become a focal point of our customer experience. We thoroughly enjoy our professional relationship with Hatchware, as they are ever innovating and changing the way we communicate with our customer base. We are excited about what the future holds for this firm and are glad to be a part of the revolution!

Jeff is a great product designer and innovative thinker. He's smart and gets stuff done. Emily is an accomplished designer and has an extraordinary eye for brand experience and interaction. Everyone at Hatchware is a pleasure to work with, always professional and courteous. They are experienced in connecting with customers and are a great fit for a diverse variety of project spaces.

Hatchware is an ideal team for businesses to work with. I think they will succeed in strengthening the relationship between restaurants and customers. This is an interesting opportunity that I'm excited to see play out.
