The PAR Purpose
We believe business is a force for good and seek to deliver value to our stakeholders, including our employees, customers, shareholders, the vendors we work with, the communities we live in and the environment.
Our values reflect who we are as PAR people and define the way we promise to act, define our character and drive our behavior. These five values are core to PAR as an organization and our focus to live out and emphasize each of these values will breed success for all our customers and stakeholders.
We make the conscious choice to be who we are, stand up for what is right and embrace the conversation that demands that we speak our truth.
Our dreams are the intangible brightness that when executed through creativity and discipline, bind us together. Imagine what is possible.
We chase clarity through presence with ourselves and each other during our human moments – so that we remain open to opportunities, appreciate the journey and focus on what is most important.
We do not build the business, we build the people who build the business. We focus on quality interactions, respect the humanity in all of us and show up for the person to the left and right of us.
We rise to challenges and with a deep breath, take the next step together.

The pineapple is a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries. During early Colonial days in the United States, families would set a fresh pineapple in the center of the table as a colorful centerpiece of the festive meal, especially when visitors joined them in celebration. The pineapple was served as a special dessert after the meal as a symbol of hospitality and warm welcome. Often when the visitor spent the night, he was given the bedroom which had the fruit carved on the bedposts or headboard–even if the bedroom belonged to the head of the household.
The traditional representation of “welcome” is why we chose the Pineapple as our symbol.
