In 1987, JAS Software, a sole proprietorship, created Food Service Management Tools to assist a local school district with the management of its cafeterias. The director was so impressed that she began spreading the word and more and more schools began using the software. Within a few years, the company expanded into a two-person partnership with the goal of making food service management even easier.
Although the DOS-based software was powerful and quite reliable, the company felt it could do better and began working on its first Windows-based point of sales system. That project led to the original Meal Magic point-of-sales software in 1998. Schools began flocking to the new product, and a year later the company incorporated and took on more employees to handle the demand.
Meal Magic became very popular and business was booming. Not wanting to sit contently, the company began working on other innovations and ultimately developed the first Windows Mobile sales register, as featured in Business Solutions magazine. The existing Meal Magic became Meal Magic Classic and the new .Net-based Meal Magic .Net Suite, now Meal Magic Suite, was released. The following year, the country’s first online free and reduced application web site, LunchApp.com, developed by Meal Magic Corporation, went live.
In 2013, Meal Magic Corporation began offering the first iPad-based POS system for school cafeterias, and, in 2018, Meal Magic Cloud delivers our SaaS hosted solution. Creativity is alive and well here. Even now Meal Magic Corporation is looking at the next best thing to make school food service management easier.

Meal Magic Cloud provides easy management of your food service operations through a powerful web browser interface. You can use Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and other popular browsers to access administrative services from your office or home.
Cloud Administration begins with two-user access, and each PC or pad sales register license adds another for up to 50 concurrent users. If that’s not enough, you can add more for plenty of access to Meal Magic Cloud. For security, you can grant individual access rights to as few or as many functions as needed.
Meal Magic Cloud interfaces with student data systems via Ed-Fi data connector or file exchanges to keep information current, and it also integrates with SendMoneyToSchool.com and LunchApp.com. Your workload is lessened by these time-savings features.
Cloud Administration includes free and reduced application processing, nutritional analysis, pre-defined and custom-definable reports, low-balance emails, and a whole lot more.
Integrating vending machines into Meal Magic Cloud is a breeze. With minimal effort you can automate sales and begin increasing your revenues. Our powerful vending software allows customers to use their accounts or pay with cash at the machine. They can even make deposits.
Items can be vended as a-la-carte offerings or combined into reimbursable meals when possible. Machines can operate all day or on schedules. Pricing can be fixed or flexible based on grades and benefits and can vary between students and adults.
Parental restrictions are enforced at vending machines. This includes blocking snack foods, requiring cash for a-la-carte purchases, restricting purchases to specific meal periods, and implementing daily spending limits. Vending purchases are viewable by parents that use SendMoneyToSchool.com.
Currently, Meal Magic Cloud interfaces with Vend-ucation vending machines through a VendNovation interface. Please contact Vend-ucation for assistance with selecting compatible equipment.
Paper applications require a lot of labor and number crunching, and manual processing requires duplicate validation. Optical scanning helps, but the forms are expensive. Then there are the jams and the misreads that slow you down. LunchApp.com is a much better answer.
LunchApp.com guides parents through the application process in simple steps. The flow is modified to match situations specific to the family based on their answers, so confusing, non-relevent sections are skipped as appropriate to make the process fast and easy.
Some districts receive more than 50% of their applications through LunchApp.com, definitely saving them a lot of paper handling. Imagine how much more time you would have if that were your story. It can be if you contact us now to get started.
