It has been fantastic working with Kitchen Armor for over a decade! The team at Kitchen Armor understands our brand and continues to provide unique and creative solutions as our business needs change and grow. Kitchen Armor is a great partner who thinks of our business the way we need them to.
Kitchen Armor’s team has been able to provide creative solutions to help our restaurants. We now have data on our kitchens that we couldn’t obtain in our last 60+ years operating. As we continue to grow our brand, Kitchen Armor has let us produce a higher volume of orders with our small team. We look forward to continuing to explore and expand the capabilities.
In a world of on-demand digital ordering, getting orders to the kitchen isn’t the challenge, it’s getting them out. Kitchen Armor has been an invaluable partner in solving our throughput challenges with technology and Operational expertise. We cook a lot of burgers over an open flame. That leads to lots of heat and grease, two things that historically wreak havoc on technology equipment. Kitchen Armor’s industrial grade hardware helps protect our technology investment and keeps the burgers flowing!
...we worked with Kitchen Armor to implement the QSR integrated kitchen system at all our locations. This has helped us to increase food production, particularly in the area of take out... ultimately improving our guest's experience.
With Kitchen Armor's knowledge, we have been able to ensure timely food delivery with accurate order delay and course timing. The result is a consistently high quality guest experience.
We were able to use existing cook time data from our other locations, which simplified kitchen staff training... they have given us a level of efficiency not previously thought obtainable.
