Mission & Values

Our mission at Frontline International was to design a system engineered to clean up one of the nastiest areas of the kitchen and eliminate burns and slip hazards. We want to help prevent burns, slips, and falls and otherwise keep kitchens cleaner, safer, and more sanitary.”

— John Palazzo, President of Frontline International.

Our corporate values are best summed up by the expression “above and beyond.”

If protecting foodservice workers from burns, slips and falls is our quest, we get after it by any means necessary.

Perhaps this is because, at our core, we are an engineering company. We compete in a space dominated by large biofuel producers. To these companies and we get that it makes sense for them—they are concerned with creating a means by which oil is collected. That’s all they want, inexpensive access to restaurateurs’ oil for use as a feedstock. Not us. We are a foodservice equipment manufacturer. We react to customer requests for tweaks and adjustments to our products to accommodate their specific needs. From fryer automation equipment to cooking oil monitoring to waste cooking oil removal equipment, our products are award-winners, classy in design, and considered the gold standard.

So long as there is fryer oil, fats, and greases to be remediated, we won’t stop until the job is done. Our installations are heroic efforts. And nothing gives us more pride, short of celebrating our own employees, than seeing our customers’ employees the day after an install, when they realize they will never touch their oil again.

Installation & Engineering

We are the experts when it comes to the complexities of installation engineering.

You have a small, short-on-space convenience store? A challenging commercial kitchen on multiple levels or floors? Whether you are a small operator in food court, a university with fryers all over campus, or a stand-alone restaurant that ties cash registers to kitchens to prompt fryer top-off based on food orders, Frontline International installs and integrates its Smart Oil Management systems seamlessly.

We are the experts when it comes to the complexities of installation engineering. And we install with zero disruption to your business, even if you’re a 24/7 operator. Whatever size or shape your space, whatever your business hours or volume, when we handle an installation we bring the experience and know-how to get you up and running quickly.

Fresh oil, the easier way.

Frontline International’s proprietary fryer automation equipment, EZ Oil™ Fresh Oil Dispensing System, is a superior oil management and storage solution in comparison to bulk oil in tanks. You purchase your choice of fresh oil in boxes or jugs. Store them on EZ Oil dispensing racks—and then oil can be directly plumbed into your fryers to fill or top off as needed. If you have multiple fryers or multiple kitchens, we can upgrade the standard three-box dispensing configuration to link multiple EZ Oil racks, increasing fill capacity. Rest easy; we can engineer and install the solution that’s right for your needs.

Tanks, not dumpsters.

Many people think used cooking oil removal equipment needs to be located near the fryer, or in a warehouse, or behind the building (that is, in a nasty dumpster). Not anymore.

We find pathways inside walls and ceilings to locate remote plumbing to make fryer oil disposal easier than ever before. Need to hook up fryers on multiple floors to a single storage tank with an exterior-only port? Not a problem. No room inside for a tank? The storage tanks for our used cooking oil removal equipment can be situated indoors or outdoors, and all collection ports have a secure, anti-theft locking valves to thwart would-be oil thieves.

The site analysis is key.

Let us fully analyze your site and work out the “how” of making it happen. There are no physical space challenges we can’t work to overcome to help you get fryer oil into your fryers and used oil into used cooking oil removal equipment. And every installation we do makes employees’ jobs safer and easier, and more cost-effective for you to own and operate.

We For even more efficiencies, you can opt to have our award-winning M3 Data Management System, a web-based software package for cooking oil monitoring that connects you with a dashboard for tracking oil usage, standardizing filtration, scheduling pickups, measuring diagnostics, and more.

There’s a better way to engineer and install the exact cooking oil system you need for efficiently and safely handling fresh oil and used oil. Call us.
