Cardfree's Jon Squire Is Staying Busy Even Amidst A Pandemic

Laura Eckstein Jones | October 19, 2020 | People

With Cardfree, CEO and co-founder Jon Squire is helping the hospitality business adjust to pandemic-related business pivots.


What’s keeping you busy right now? We’re helping hospitality businesses—big and small—establish scalable contact-free solutions for the current environment’s immediate needs, but also for the long term.

What does the world need more of now?
Kindness and decency.

How are you helping the community? Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have offered our services absolutely gratis for the first three months, but we have gone beyond that for those that need it.

What’s your advice to others for helping the Bay Area? Go out to your favorite restaurants more—even if it’s grab and go—and be generous with your tips, if you are able! We all need each other. This has shown us how vital the people we come in contact with every day are. Patience and graciousness go a long way.

What is your 2020 motto? Whatever it takes.
