THE BOSTON PIZZA RESTAURANT IN WOODSTOCK, ONTARIO USES IOT TECHNOLOGY TO AUTOMATE FOOD TEMPERATURE TRACKING TO ENSURE ACCURACY AND SAVE MONEY.

 

 

SITUATION

 

Boston Pizza needs a systematic, and secure way to monitor the temperatures inside their fridges and freezers.


     • Boston Pizza requires three temperature readings a day for restaurant appliances
     • Manual, paper log readings are time-consuming, and subject to human error


The challenge is to ensure the consistency of the temperatures inside their cold storage units, and ensure food is being stored safely.

 

TEMPERATURE MONITORING IS LABORIOUS AND MANUAL
With extreme temperatures in ovens and cold storage units, safety is a top priority.
Employees use pens, paper and clipboards to complete manual temperature checks multiple times a day.
Temperature data is difficult to access and often stored in boxes.
 
SOLUTION
 
Lee and Megan Porter are the co-owners of P&E Restaurants, operating as Boston Pizza Woodstock, a bustling establishment in southern Ontario. The plan was to find a solution to improve food temperature monitoring in their restaurant. 
blueRover™ designed and installed a smart monitoring sensor system to automatically track and log temperatures. The data is stored securely on the internet, and accessed easily online. The business has saved time and money by automating the temperature monitoring process. The accuracy, consistency, and real-time online reporting of the temperature readings, improved food safety.
