An easier way to run your restaurant business
Blanket’s mission is to help front line teams thrive, and bring joy to their everyday work.
During his years operating his growing restaurant business, Blanket founder Michael Jacober dealt with endless problems managing and organizing all the work within his stores. He knew there was a better way than relying on email, text messages, and paper-based systems to manage, multi-unit operations, especially for people who are always on the go and rarely in the office.
To help keep his teams on track, he built an internal tool that allowed him and his partner to communicate more effectively with their in store teams. Inspired by how much time they saved traveling between locations, Michael founded Blanket to help operators maximize their time, and manage their everyday work.

I ask myself that at least once a day. I had a pretty good thing going as a restaurant owner/operator, but as my business was expanding, it was getting exponentially harder to manage my day to day. More staff meant more management, and more management meant less time focusing on the things that inspired me to grow my business.
Staying on top of my staff's daily duties was nearly impossible, even after spending countless hours setting up systems that were supposed to make things easier. Communication was a huge challenge as well. Email and SMS were proving really tough to stay on top of, so I tried many types of software that were supposedly designed to make these things run smoother. None of them seemed to make sense for someone on the move as much as me.
Blanket is a task management solution and communication tool for companies whose staff is on the go, or on their feet, not behind a desk. We built a very simple interface that's easy to understand, but extremely powerful, and all with Real Time functionality.
