Cooking Oil Management for Convenience Stores

Convenience Store Automated Cooking Oil Delivery and Recycling for Safer Restaurants - Restaurant Technologies

Consumers are hitting up convenience stores for meals and meal replacement more than ever, and it’s a huge win-win. Customers love having the super-convenient option; C-store owners love having the high-margin prepared food items to offer. Of course, hot food brings new overhead — like cooking oil — that can quickly chew up margin if you’re not careful. Don’t kick yourself: even finely tuned restaurant kitchens can struggle with oil management, and that’s why they turn to us. We’re Restaurant Technologies, and we help convenience stores manage cooking oil better. Through our Total Oil Management system, we offer cooking oil delivery, and so much more.

Total Oil Management for Convenience Stores

You’re in the business of making things convenient. You’re not in the business of oil management. We are. Let us make oil management convenient for you.

Here’s how it works. Our technicians install Total Oil Management on your premises, connecting your deep fryer to two storage tanks: one for used grease, one for fresh cooking oil. Once the system is set up, disposal of used grease and refilling your fryer with fresh oil is as easy as the push of a button. Our oil management experts will provide the initial training to you and your team, teaching you how to use the simple controls. No more manually handling hot oil, no more dangerous and labor-intensive disposal: the whole process is automated.

The grease drained from your deep fryer is stored in the secure tank until we come pick it up, haul it away, and recycle it into biodiesel fuel. At the same time we pick up your used oil, we also deliver your fresh cooking oil — it’s one quick appointment, an entire closed loop eco-friendly process.

A Trusted Name in the Food Service Industry

For more than two decades, Restaurant Technologies has been the number one choice for cooking oil delivery and cooking oil management systems in the restaurant industry. We’ve worked with some of the biggest names including McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King, and many more. 

We’re thrilled to see convenience stores getting in on the incredible market opportunity of prepared food. We’re proud to provide cooking oil management solutions to C-stores like Circle K, Kwik Trip, and Enmark, and look forward to providing the technology you need to take your food service to the next level!

Total Oil Management Improves Food Quality and Consistency

No longer limited to packaged snacks and drinks, C-store owners are realizing the significant profit potential of prepared foods. But in order for your hot food offerings to succeed long-term, it takes more than just convenience. It takes quality. If people don’t love your food, you won’t win the repeat customers you need. Total Oil Management improves food quality and consistency by ensuring that you’re always using good cooking oil — not burnt or old oil. 

We do this by making oil disposal and refilling tasks so easy that you and your employees can do them even when there are customers browsing. This ensures that these important tasks get done more often, which means your food comes out delicious every time.

Worker Safety

Convenience Store News reports that Workers’ Compensation claims are one of the fastest growing expenses for C-stores over the last decade, and the shift to prepared food offerings is a large part of the cause. In 2016, claims were up 16%, to an average of $12,320 per store.
Preparation of hot food does increase worker safety risks — that’s because hot oil is dangerous if improperly handled. The key is to create processes that emphasize safety and mitigate risk, and that’s exactly what Total Oil Management does. Total Oil Management virtually eliminates hot oil handling, which significantly reduces burns and slips-and-falls caused by spilled oil.

“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.

Dan Shapiro

Area Manager – Apple American Group

“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.”

Solutions for C-Stores

Restaurant Technologies is excited by the incredible potential of prepared foods in convenience stores. Let’s chat about how our solutions can help your business grow.

Total Oil Management

With Total Oil Management, we handle the entire oil process for you from ordering and delivering fresh cooking oil all the way to recycling used oil. Our system automates everything so you can focus on what’s really important — your convenience store business.


To protect from catastrophic exhaust hood fire and costly downtime, Restaurant Technologies designed the AutoMist system. It cleans your exhaust hood 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. Designed for unique  layouts, the fully enclosed, easy-to-use tank allows you to make practically any space work, even narrow elevators and tight hallways. And by providing a connector hose for filling and emptying the oil, your employees never have to touch a drop of hot oil again.


GreaseLock is your first line of defense for reducing exhaust hood fire risk. 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 exhaust system.
