The Counter Adds RTI’s Total Oil Management Solution

Franchisees of The Counter are loyal clients of Restaurant Technologies, Inc., and recently added the company’s new fryer filtration monitoring technology to their Total Oil Management solution from RTI. RTI’s solution allows franchise owners to monitor each of their restaurants’ compliance with standard operating procedures for frying.

“The addition of fryer filtration monitoring to The Counter’s existing RTI oil management solution helps maintain the high consistency of our fried products, and extends the life of the oil through filtration,” says franchisee Steven Gruman.

RTI’s fryer filtration monitoring technology collects data from sensors in the fryer, and feeds insights directly to the customer’s online Total Oil Management customer portal.

There, users such as Gruman can easily identify and determine corrective actions for any deviations from standard operating procedures. Gruman can also view oil usage across all restaurant locations, and then can compare that information.

The RTI Total Oil Management system is comprised of two space-conscious tanks in the restaurant’s kitchen, one for fresh oil and one for waste oil, and a secure outdoor fill box. Fresh and waste oil lines run between the fryer and tanks inside to an exterior fill box.

RTI collects and recycles all waste oil on behalf of customers like The Counter.

“The Counter continues to partner with us for oil management solutions because they see the value in our automated service,” says Jeff Kiesel, chief executive officer, RTI.
