(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Cloud Equity Group, an investment management company focused on opportunistic acquisitions of web service providers, today announced the acquisition of Fresh Roasted Hosting, a leading provider of premium web services based out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Fresh Roasted Hosting was founded in 2011 as a premium service provider offering high-end hosting solutions to both individuals and small businesses located primarily in Central Pennsylvania. The company boasts a superior service model and has separated itself within the industry by leveraging a highly customizable client-first approach as a premier local provider. As their name indicates, the Fresh Roasted Hosting brand is often compared to the superiority of a fresh, hot, premium brewed coffee.
“Fresh Roasted Hosting’s commitment to providing premier solutions and high quality service complements our existing portfolio companies and further supports our ability to provide premium hosting solutions across a wide range of geographical markets,” said Sean Frank, Managing Partner at Cloud Equity Group. “Fresh Roasted Hosting’s founder, Dave Sheranko, was critical to the growth and development of the company’s robust infrastructure, as well as its strategic positioning as a leading provider of high performance hosting solutions within a niche market. We look forward to working with Dave as we continue to grow and expand the Fresh Roasted Hosting brand.”
