Casual & Fine Dining Restaurants

Casual and Fine Dining - Kitchen Solutions and Innovations

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 and 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.

Managing oil effectively is vital in our business because it affects cleanliness, employee safety, and operational efficiency. We can’t afford to misuse shortening because it affects the flavor, quality and consistency of our products.

President Central Iowa KFC Inc.
When KBP Foods walks into a room of general managers and says we’re going to put Restaurant Technologies into their restaurants, we get a standing ovation. It’s that important and that impactful.
Matt Hansen
Chief Operating Officer, KBP Foods
Our old system was so messy, physically strenuous and even dangerous, that employees were cutting corners to avoid doing the work. Instead of filtering the oil, employees would add fresh oil to bad oil, overuse the oil and then dump and replace large quantities.
Tony De Salvo
Franchisee, Bar Louie
The cooks would kill me if I took Restaurant Technologies out at this point. In fact, automated oil management has been so successful at Red Fish Grill that the parent company is installing it in a California restaurant.
Haley Bitterman
Corporate Executive Chef, Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group
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.
Tony De Salvo
Franchisee, Bar Louie
We started with Restaurant Technologies last May, and it has really been a great experience for us. Everyone in our company loves it.
