Remote refrigeration, the concept of moving your compressors to an area outside your commercial kitchen, can have many levels of benefit in your foodservice operation.
Sooner or later, almost all foodservice equipment will need to be serviced. A service technician’s top priority is to keep businesses up and running while limiting equipment downtime as much as possible. When it comes to servicing commercial refrigeration equipment, the goal is still the same.
We waste a lot of food. In fact, close to a third of the world's food production is wasted each year, accounting for roughly 1.3 billion tons and nearly $990 billion dollars. In the United States alone, Americans waste $160 billion of that total, which is nearly 30 to 40 percent of the entire U.S. food supply.
But are we making progress? What is being done to prevent food waste? Where are we at in 2018?
In all walks of life, we’re always looking for that “easy button” – that one solution that solves our most pressing challenges without causing us worry, stress, or financial burden. While the real “easy button” is just for show, remote refrigeration monitoring is one solution that’s making life easier for foodservice operators.

Just a few degrees can separate food waste from profitable food. Store food in temperatures that are too warm and it will spoil. Store food in frozen conditions for too long and you run the risk of freezer burn. However, all that costly food waste can be eliminated through proper storing conditions in a commercial freezer. Which begs the question, are you saving money by maintaining the quality of the food in your walk-in freezer?
We live in times when there's a delicate balance between regulations and repercussions. This is certainly true in the foodservice industry, especially as it pertains to refrigeration and the environment.
The office lunch break used to consist of two main options – leaving the office to grab some fast food across the street, or brown bag it with a packed lunch from home. Neither choice was usually satisfying, or all that healthy. However, in today’s workplace, corporate dining is just as important of a job benefit as vacation days or a free phone. In fact, many companies both large and small are making corporate foodservice a necessary component for every employee’s work day.
Sometimes remodels can completely change the landscape and profitability of a property. And for one of the most well-respected resorts in Jamaica, a multi-million dollar renovation was required to help the operation realize the full potential of its unique, Caribbean location.
