One of the big differences between Frontline International and others that want to put oil management and oil recycling equipment in your operation is that most of them don’t really care about the equipment. Rather, they are huge, publicly traded oil processors. They lease you equipment, rent you use of their fresh oil, and then grab it back when the frying oil is used (without even paying a rebate).
And all of this for a monthly fee.
Remember that car lease you could never afford to get out from under? Or that first apartment? This is the cycle you fall into. Ask yourself if you lease any other foodservice equipment.
When you choose Frontline International as your supplier partner, you will own your award-winning commercial kitchen equipment for fresh oil and oil recycling. It is how to dispose of cooking oil. You will be free of monthly lease payments and yearly contracts, and Frontline International equipment pays for itself in 12 to 16 months.
If your store’s oil volume doesn’t rise to the level of a Direct-Plumbed® system for cooking oil recycling and cooking oil disposal, with plumbing and the works, ok, we have a caddy system that is an unbelievable start to the best oil recycling system on the market. But you can always upgrade. Our Smart Oil Management™ systems are modular, so you can buy only what you need and you can upgrade at any time.
Some oil management plans offer zero rebates for your used cooking oil (UCO). Essentially, you rent their equipment and they own the oil, including the valuable waste oil. You are leaving a lot of money on the table. And even if you are collecting rebates, Frontline International commercial kitchen equipment can help you earn average oil recycling rebates of $.15 to $.25 more per pound on frying oil because Frontline International’s filtered, cleaner waste oil is worth more at waste oil collection time. We are recognized to deliver the best used cooking yields in the industry, up to 95% pure.
With a nod to Maxwell House, our innovative EZ Oil™ Fresh Oil Dispensing System was designed to invert the boxed frying oil in storage. The inversion ensures that every drop of oil is used, increasing oil yields by up to 10% over conventional bulk oil with no automation. Add to that, our EZ Oil™ System costs less, takes up less space, and keeps oil fresher than bulk tanks.
Our M3 system is a data-mining machine. We were the first to offer this kind of system and, for that, we won the 2013 Kitchen Innovations award. Others copied, but they don’t compare. You can learn more about M3 here, but here’s two big COST SAVING points: 1) knowing exactly—to the ounce—how much waste oil is in your tank makes knowing your rebate from your waste oil collection contractor a simple matter of multiplying your agreed upon oil recycling rate by the volume of waste oil. No more guessing or taking the measurements on faith. Remember, it’s not just knowing how to dispose of cooking oil, but knowing how much you’ll earn by doing so. 2) M3 makes the most of the frying oil you use. Our automatic top-off function is unique in the industry. Right from the cash register, complex calculations are communicated to our M3 system, and from M3 to our EZ Oil™ commercial kitchen equipment, so that the guesswork of keeping precise amounts of oil in the fryer instead becomes the science of Smart Oil Management.
Make sure your agent is in the loop on the kind of commercial kitchen equipment that is in your establishment. Having the safest cooking oil with automatic filling of fryers and Direct-Plumbed® waste oil systems reduces accidents such as burns, slips, and falls from hot oil and greasy floors. This is just like proving you have a fire extinguisher to reduce rates. And preventing accidents has a direct and positive impact on your bottom line; in fact, every $1 spent on safety programs adds $5 to your bottom line.
