Fully Automated Temperature Protection Solution Saves Restaurant Thousands of Dollars

Many facilities manually monitor refrigeration systems, but it is nearly impossible to monitor equipment 24 hours a day manually. Expensive, time-consuming, labor-intensive monitoring processes cause operational efficiency to suffer, resulting in an increased risk for non-compliance.

But the foodservice industry is changing rapidly. Technology is transforming the future of foodservice, helping businesses better manage each aspect of running a successful operation.

Facing Challenges in Refrigeration

In the restaurant industry, proper refrigeration is vital for preserving the quality and safety of dairy, produce, meat, eggs, and other perishable food items.

It is crucial for meeting health department compliance regulations and ensuring the satisfaction of your customers.

The owner of Lariat Lodge Brewing Company experienced first-hand what could happen when refrigeration systems fail.
One of their refrigerator air vents got blocked by bulky food items, causing the internal temperature to spike to a dangerous level.

The kitchen staff did not notice the temperature change until the following morning, but the food was spoiled by then. Lariat Lodge had no choice but to throw away the food, costing them thousands of dollars in inventory. The owner immediately realized that they needed a way to automate temperature monitoring for the refrigerators to ensure the disaster would not happen again.
