Interview with Dave Perrill, president of WAND Corp

Family business is finding new growth in digital menu boards

By Steve LeBeau

The WAND Corp. got started 30 years ago with an emphasis on point-of-sale systems and backroom operations technology. But for the last eight years the company has become a major player in digital menu boards, serving more than 70 brands in the “quick food and fast casual” niche, including Cinnabon, Church’s Chicken and Auntie Anne’s. Cyndy Brucato of Greater MSP Business recently talked with WAND’s president, Dave Perrill, who explains that menu board technology has become more affordable thanks to the lower costs of tablets, cloud computing and the displays themselves.
