Manage Oil to Minimize Costs

Getting the best return on oil investment and return on fried food costs are critical to sustaining your foodservice business. The good news is that most organizations have procedures in place to track basic oil spend and handling costs. But there's still lots of room for error.

The breakdown happens during the
traditional manual oil handling process.

A series of disconnected steps—including oil purchase and delivery through grease disposal and recycling—doesn’t offer insight into key oil metrics. These metrics can include oil usage over time, across locations, or within certain operating parameters. This leaves a gap where efficiencies and opportunities for training are missed, costing you time and money.

In addition, few operators have a good understanding of what oil handling costs in safety expenses. Though it's not the operator's fault since that information is usually held by the insurance company or the risk management department. However, these costs can add up to thousands of dollars per location per year. In fact, one study found that 60% of back of house (BOH) injuries were linked to cooking oil.

Only our turnkey solution can solve this problem. Since our automated oil technology handles the entire process from start to finish, it captures this data for you. And our user-friendly online reporting tools give you direct access to information that enables incremental (or, in some cases, more substantial) oil handling improvements that boost ROI.
