KFC Continues the Colonel’s Quality and Innovation Traditions with Automated Oil Management

Automated oil management measures and monitors usage to serve the “original recipe”

MINNEAPOLIS – Oct. 16, 2012 – While Col. Sander’s famous “finger lickin’ good” chicken taste has stayed the same for decades, some KFC restaurants have entered a new era when it comes to handling its fryer oil.

Restaurant Technologies, Inc.® (RTI) is helping Central Iowa-based KFC franchisee Kevin Schlutz optimize his oil-management operations with its innovative closed-loop process and services. The RTI Total Oil Management™(TOM™) solution eliminates the often messy and time-consuming process of manually handling oil, while maximizing Schlutz’s food quality and bottom line.

“Managing oil effectively is vital in our business because it affects cleanliness, employee safety, and operational efficiency,” Schlutz said. “Plus, we can’t afford to overuse or misuse shortening because it affects the flavor, quality and consistency of our products.”

Understanding the impact these injuries could have on your business and knowing how to prevent them can help make your restaurant a safer place for your employees to come to work.

Are you getting golden results from your cooking oil?

Cooking oil has the power to change the taste, texture, and appearance of the food you fry. You might think you're serving the perfect French Fry, but a change in how you manage your cooking oil could raise your fried foods to the next level — and ultimately lead to more satisfied customers coming back for their favorite dishes.

Choosing the Right Cooking Oil

Cooking oil may be the secret ingredient no one is talking about when it comes to fried food. It can mean the difference between a one-time visitor and a regular customer. You certainly want good taste, texture and appearance, but there are also other considerations for choosing oil.

Is your cooking oil making the grade?

You can use the best ingredients in the world, but if your cooking oil isn't up to par, your efforts might not reach their full potential. Download the Oil Testing Guide to test, grade and determine which cooking oil will best complement your cuisine and your operation.

High quality food is something we just won’t sacrifice. The Restaurant Technologies monitoring system takes the guesswork out of oil management and filtration processes, improving consistency and employee accountability which positively impacts our food quality.

I recommend the system to my fellow franchisees. I do think it improves the quality of your product and it does give you the ability to hold your managers accountable and I highly recommend it based on my experience.

“I made a decision to partner with Restaurant Technologies for several key reasons including Safety, Cleanliness and Simplification. This program has been very helpful to our team and has made the life of our restaurant general managers much easier. Retaining quality people is key for us and this program makes the employees happy. We have seen at least a 20 minute reduction in time spent handling oil by replacing a very manual process with an automated system. This allows us to reallocate resources to more customer facing tasks. This has been a great benefit to the Kedis team”

The cooks would kill me if I took Restaurant Technologies out at this point. In fact, automated oil management has been so successful at Red Fish Grill that the parent company is installing it in a California restaurant.
