Ken Lovegreen, Founder of TEXT2PARK

The LRS Coaster Call, with its flashing red lights, has become the worldwide standard in guest paging for many industries. You’ve probably used one this week at Panera Bread or another restaurant. My partners and I developed this iconic restaurant pager in 1993 under our company, Long Range Systems (LRS). We are proud of the 25 patents we filed to build LRS.

We believe in the concept “Keep it Simple.” When something is simple, people will use it.

In 2011, I sold LRS and started TEZ with SMS Valet. TEZ has created innovative, simple mobile technology solutions for streamlining operations, increasing efficiency and improving overall guest experiences in several different markets. Intuitive TEZ products power delightful guest experiences in venues including restaurant, hotel, residential, commercial and more.

TEXT2PARK started in 2017 using the Keep It Simple philosophy that powers everything we do.
