Although Garner Foods is based in South Carolina, they sell hot sauce and Green Mountain Gringo brand products all over the world. With digital tools, their projects are easily managed remotely, and team members can work from anywhere.

Garner Foods chose to partner with Microsoft 365 Business to easily onboard new employees and to secure company data stored on countless devices.
