ECRS Acquires ReciProfity For Prepared Foods Growth

ECRS reciProfity

ECRS has acquired reciProfity, a provider of cloud-based food costing and recipe management solutions for more than four decades.

This move enables ECRS to better serve its community of traditional grocers, natural grocers and food co-op retailers as it continues to expand deli and grocerant formats. 

In collaboration with the CATAPULT retailer community, ECRS identified reciProfity as the “ideal partner” to enhance its suite of solutions for prepared and weighted foods, creating continuity between kitchen-costing software and point-of-sale systems.

With this acquisition, Boone, North Carolina-based ECRS is bringing to market the first-in-the-industry integrated system capable of handling complex transactions for grocery retail. 

“We are really pleased that ECRS is involved,” said Matthew Starobin, reciProfity founder. “ECRS will have the ability to carry on in the food service world because of their experience, market share, product development know-how and capitalization. I think that is very good news for reciProfity users.” 

reciProfity will continue to operate under its brand, providing customers with a seamless transition. This approach underscores ECRS’ unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and highlights its dedication to preserving the exceptional service that reciProfity has consistently delivered. 

Looking toward the future, ECRS will prioritize ensuring the reciProfity software is optimized for growth. They will complete software development projects, explore new features requested by the food costing community and implement integration capability with CATAPULT Retail POS.

The addition of reciProfity to the ECRS suite of prepared foods functionality – such as online and in-store made-to-order software, deli scale software and kitchen printing – will help grocery retailers streamline their operations and serve their customers.  

“It’s an honor to carry the legacy of reciProfity into its next chapter,” said ECRS President Caroline Catoe.

“Food costing and recipe management are time consuming operations. reciProfity is designed to automate these operational areas and free businesses up to focus on their most important aspect – the customer. We have big plans to bring new features to the system and a long-term vision of being the very best food costing solution in the world.”
