Casual and Fine Dining Restaurant Technologies

Restaurant Technologies understands that the customer experience is #1 for Casual and Fine Dining Restaurant operations. From local independent fine dining establishments to some of the largest casual dining chains, more and more of the finest names in the business are making the switch to safer, smarter oil management solutions for their kitchens.

Food quality is key to delivering that experience and great fried food is a key part of a craveable menu. Restaurant Technologies' Total Oil Management systems with Fryer Filtration Monitoring ensure that your kitchen staff is actually doing what you ask them to do, even when you are not there to supervise them. As a result, more food is cooked in oil that is in the “sweet spot” for frying, resulting in crisp, golden and delicious chicken, fish, appetizers and, of course, french fries.

At the same time, with more pressure on labor costs, reducing complexity in the back of house is critical to supporting a great guest experience and an efficient operation. Over 60% of a restaurant’s labor costs are in the back of house. Restaurant Technologies takes away the least popular job in the kitchen to reduce risk and safety costs, labor costs and waste collection costs.

For the independent restaurant owner, franchisee or large chain, Restaurant Technologies' no capital costs, zero installation fee program makes flipping the switch to a safer, smarter kitchen and great employee and guest experience easy.

We Serve

“We’re saving time because we don’t have to drag shuttles around. But cleanliness has also improved; our floors stay cleaner and safer, the back dock is cleaner without the grease bin, and the equipment itself is cleaner.”

“Like every owner/operator using a manual process, I’ve seen injuries directly related to oil disposal—burns, slips, falls. We hauled used grease in buckets, still hot out of the fryer, to 55 gallon barrels out the back door of the restaurant for the grease guy. It was a big mess and created a lot of liability.”

“Comparing our two restaurants, cost wise we’re definitely using less oil in the location with the filtration monitoring system.”

“We estimate that employees spend at least 15 fewer minutes on kitchen cleaning at the end of each day. This can get them home to their families faster, but it also saves us about $150 to $200 per week in labor costs at each location.”

Total Oil Management

With Total Oil Management, we handle the entire oil process for you—from ordering and receipt processing to delivering fresh cooking oil all the way to storing, handling and recycling of used cooking oil. Our advanced kitchen equipment and technology even automates everything so your employees never have to worry about transporting hot oil ever again.


To protect your business from a catastrophic fire and costly downtime, Restaurant Technologies designed the AutoMist system. It cleans your hood, flue and fan every day with a powerful spray mixture of detergent and water to prevent hazardous grease buildup.

Portable Cooking Oil Management

Our advanced portable oil technology is a clean, safe and efficient way to transport oil. It is designed specifically for unique restaurants like yours, regardless of your kitchen's setup. The fully enclosed, easy-to-use tank allows you to make practically any space—narrow elevators, tight hallways and more—work. And by providing a connector hose for filling and emptying the oil, your employees never have to touch a drop of hot oil again.

Grease Lock

Grease Lock is your first line of defense reducing risk of flames entering the hood and flue. The patented disposable filter pad and metal frame reduces frequency of hood cleaning, maintenance on the roof and baffle filter cleaning. It addresses all life stages of grease as it travels through your kitchen exhaust system.
