Grocery Deli Operations Cooking Oil Management and Hood/Flue Solutions

For grocery food-service operators, we know that keeping things friendly and presentable behind the deli counter is a must. With the continuing growth of home meal replacement and the ever-increasing role of hot, prepared food in these “Grocerant” solutions, having a deli operation that functions as efficiently as any commercial restaurant kitchen is critical.

Grocery operation comes with its own challenges: delis tend to be located far from the back dock, sometimes requiring hot waste oil to be transported through the aisles of the store with all the safety concerns that raises. Also deli employees tend be older than a typical restaurant workforce and more vulnerable to back strain and slip and fall injuries.

Grocery Chains We Serve

“I love it, we don’t have to close down for cleaning anymore. For that reason alone, I love the system, and won’t want to go back to the old way.

“I saw this system and I said ‘this has to be better.’ By providing better productivity and safety, it just really resonated with me as being an opportunity to make things more efficient. One of the things that employees dread doing anywhere is fryers. So, when I saw it, I knew I had to know more.”

Solutions

Restaurant Technologies has been providing services and solutions to the growing Grocery segment for over 30 years. As deli operations continue to include more and more hot food, rotisserie, and fast-fresh options. Restaurant Technologies continues to innovate our product/solutions offering to ensure you have a Safer, Smarter Kitchen.

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.

AutoMist

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.

GreaseLock

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.
