Restaurant Technologies knows that more and more consumers are looking to convenience stores to provide quick food and beverage options. Millennials are frequenting convenience stores almost twice as much as fast-casual restaurants, which turns your operation into a trending location for meal replacement. This makes it even more important that your hot, prepared food is crave-worthy and consistent in quality.
Having a convenience store operation that functions as efficiently as any commercial restaurant kitchen is critical to producing the quality of food your consumers expect. As you add cooking tasks to your labor needs you take on more risk than back when sandwiches were all you sold. In fact, Convenience Store News reports that the fastest growing expense item for C-Stores in 2016 was worker’s compensation, up +16% to $12,320 per store. That’s one reason why many top names in the convenience industry use Restaurant Technologies, such as Rutter’s, Krispy Krunchy Chicken, Enmark and Circle K.
The oil management solution is a simple and easy program for convenience stores to implement and because it’s so simple and easy, it also drives productivity improvements. By eliminating manual oil handling, convenience stores reduce the amount of time wasted on non-value-added tasks and create a safer, smarter operation by increasing efficiencies.
C-Stores We Serve
“With Restaurant Technologies, we just open the spigot and use the wand to level off the oil. It’s so much easier. This system also makes it simple to dispose of used fryer oil. We no longer have to drain the hot oil into a container, and wheel it outside to an oil-rendering tank. That process was messy and dangerous and left potential for burns, slips and falls. With this oil management system, we no longer have to do that.
“Number one, you always want to provide a safe workplace for your employees and we do a great job at that.”
“Our employees love not being exposed to hot oil during the filling, cleaning, and disposal process. Our stores are simply cleaner. We’ve seen a reduction in the risk of injury because fewer oil and grease spills happen, and staff no longer carry heavy containers of hot of oil through the store.”
Restaurant Technologies has been providing services and solutions to the Quick Service and Fast Casual Restaurant segments for over 30 years.
Total Oil Management
With Total Oil Management, we handle the entire oil process for you—from ordering and receipt process 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 is your first line of defense reducing risk of flames entering the hood & 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.
