Our mission statement is to love our customers and all the people we do business with everyday.
At FiveStars, we want to drive a level of engagement and interaction between customers and businesses that was never possible before. Whether it be through customer loyalty, VIP treatment, or social interaction, our technology platform enables us to leverage an interaction channel that will make customers happier and businesses more profitable.
FiveStars was born in December 2010. Since then, we've raised funding from first tier venture capital firms and some very prominent angel investors. We're growing insanely fast and are now going national because of our latest influx of investment. So to answer your question, yes, we are awesome. We are solving some incredibly challenging technology problems that bridge the retail business world and the digital world. And best of all, we have an amazingly driven, talented, and fun team. We've got a PhD in string theory, the top analyst at McKinsey, and everyone in between. We work hard, play hard, and look good doing both.
