Bob Evans Farms, LLC. owns and operates more than 550 family restaurants in 19 states, primarily in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions of the United States. Through its BEF Foods segment, the company is also a leading producer and distributor of refrigerated and frozen convenience food items under the Bob Evans™ and Owens™ brand names.
As the Columbus, OH-based company grew over the past decade, its data usage and information-technology needs grew with it. During this time of growth, the company found it increasingly difficult and expensive to store and optimize its IT equipment in-house.
