Kitchen Management

 

Coordinating and Optimizing the Restaurant of Things.

The modern-day restaurant kitchen is a dynamic internet of things, including fryers, broilers, freezers, refrigerators, holding units, and more. With the majority of customer wait times spent on kitchens preparing food, connecting and optimizing all of these things has the potential to dramatically enhance speed while also elevating quality.

SICOM Chef™ Kitchen Management enables restaurants to simultaneously move the needle on speed and quality by optimizing preparation and cooking processes in the restaurant kitchen, then empowering staff to carry those changes into action.

SICOM Chef Kitchen Management

The kitchen management system that unleashes IoT in your restaurant.

priority

Mastering the Science of Priority.

Your kitchen is a dynamic environment, and not all items are created equal. SICOM Chef understands and evaluates each order in the queue and dynamically prioritizes kitchen directives accordingly, taking cook and prep time into account.

demand patterns

Aligning Directives to Demand Patterns.

In most quick service and food service environments, traffic wanes and picks up in distinct patterns by hour of day and day of week. Chef streamlines kitchen processes by aligning directives with demand patterns to mitigate food waste, and use valuable lulls in activity to make the best, most impactful use of crew time.

multi-channel

Many Channels, One Kitchen.

It’s an omni-channel world, and your kitchen is no exception. Chef seamlessly integrates omni-channel orders that have been placed via web, mobile app and delivery app by harnessing geo-location and taking arrival time into account.

configuration

Your Restaurant, Your Configuration.

Restaurants’ kitchen blueprints often vary, even within the same franchise or brand. Chef understands your unique kitchen configuration and can be readily tailored to your unique product holding unit placement, pan layouts, day-parts and hours.

performance tracking

Cross-Location Performance Tracking.

Chef goes beyond merely providing optimized directives to crew members. It carries these directives through to action via the intuitive SICOM Portal, where your business can grade performance across locations, maximize accountability, and make meaningful improvements.

Featured Expert

“Speed of service is not a front of house phenomenon. Many don’t realize the integral role kitchen processes have on a restaurant’s speed. Chef turns the kitchen into an internet of things that identifies the best, most impactful kitchen activities at all times to drive faster service and improve food quality.”
