Quick Serve Restaurants (QSR) & Fast Casual Restaurants

Quick Serve Restaurants are where Restaurant Technologies started more than 20 years ago with our founding customer, McDonald’s. We understand that QSR is a pennies business, and we help most of the largest brands and their franchisees save pennies in all sorts of ways such as more effective oil filtration compliance leading to reduced oil costs, reduced Worker’s Compensation claims from burns, slips and falls, reduced waste collection fees or reduced labor costs for changing out the oil.

At the same time, both quick serve and fast casual brands are built on consistently great tasting food at a great price. Restaurant Technologies helps deliver that consistently great-tasting food from location to location—whether you are a franchisee of one location or seven hundred, or a brand franchisor looking to ensure consistent quality across your entire system.

For these reasons, some of the biggest names in the business, such as McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, Shake Shack, Jack in the Box and many more, rely on Restaurant Technologies for safety, food quality and efficiency.

Solutions

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 processing to 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.

Grease Lock

Grease Lock is your first line of defense reducing risk of flames entering the hood and 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.

Best of all, there is no upfront capital cost—it’s all included in the service agreement.

24/7 Support

If you have an issue, we have local service technicians and customer service experts available to you 24/7. We know you don’t have time for downtime. Since we stand behind our equipment, all repairs and services are included in the regular program fee so you don’t have unexpected call-out charges.
