Convenient, New Oil Management Option for Des Moines-Area Foodservice Industry


July 10, 2013

New location serving Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois region allows local foodservice establishments to reduce oil usage and improve food quality through proper filtration

MINNEAPOLIS – July 10, 2013 – Foodservice oil management innovator Restaurant Technologies, Inc. (RTI) has expanded its frying-oil delivery, management, removal and equipment service capability with the addition of a Des Moines, Iowa depot.

The company’s first Iowa-based oil depot supports more than 130 current customers located throughout Iowa, Eastern Nebraska and Western Illinois. It will also supply and service 80 new installations coming online around the region over the next four months. The depot serves as a central services center. Each location installs equipment, and monitors and delivers fresh oil. It also removes used oil for RTI customers, and provides ongoing consultation, training and maintenance.

RTI was recently named a CIO 100 honoree by CIO magazine for its Field Service Automation Technology used at depots. The technology allows RTI drivers to use mobile phones to monitor customers’ oil and equipment needs and update driving routes in real time for the most efficient service.

A grand opening for the new depot, which expands the RTI regional staff to nine employees, is scheduled for today, July 10. The facility is located at 1501 NE Broadway Ave. in Des Moines.

Utilizing 41 regional depots based in U.S. metropolitan markets, RTI delivers new oil in metered, bulk quantities and removes waste oil. The company has added four regional locations over the past 12 months to optimize responsiveness and improve the cost efficiency of stocking and managing frying oil for customers. The depots facilitate restaurant sustainability initiatives through oil credit programs as well, collecting used oil for recycling into biodiesel.

For more than 15 years, RTI has helped the foodservice industry improve food quality and consistency, operational efficiency, safety, cleanliness and sustainability through the automated delivery, storage, handling and disposal of fryer oil. More than 19,000 foodservice locations like McDonald’s, Jack in the Box, Burger King, Albertsons, White Castle, KFC, Carrabba’s, Applebee’s and Chili’s use the turnkey RTI oil management solution to decrease the costs, hazards and inconvenience of handling fryer oil.
