Grocery and Convenience Store food systems

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.

For these reasons more and more of the largest, most progressive grocery and convenience store operators in the country have switched to Restaurant Technologies' solutions for their oil management. From Wegman's, Tops and Winn-Dixie in the East, Hy-Vee and Lund & Byerly's in the Midwest, to Stater Bros, Raley's and Albertsons in the West, the safety, sustainability and efficiency benefits have been compelling, and the impact on consistent food quality allows them to compete every day with home cooking.

The ease of the Restaurant Technologies system means our shortening is cleaner, resulting in a better tasting product that our customers can rely on.
Ken Donahue
Burger King franchise owner
We’ve been using the Restaurant Technologies system for the last 5 years. We currently have it installed in all 172 of our restaurants. It’s one of the best systems I’ve ever seen for managing oil. There’s so many wins to this system.
Matt Hansen
Chief Operating Officer, KBP Foods
The results we saw from Restaurant Technologies exceeded our expectations. Thanks to them, we’ve gained optimal control over the cooking-oil handling process, benefiting our bottom line, our customers and our employees.
Jim Hannan
VP Operations, TEAM Schostak
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.

Franchisee, Bar Louie
People often revert to their old way of doing their jobs. But if they fully understand the benefits behind a business decision, they’re more likely to change for good.
Joe Sciortino
Procurement Manager, Wild Wing Café
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.
