Middle of House

The Middle of House™ (MoH™) is the heart of the restaurant – and it is also flyover territory for digital integration.

The kitchen team of today – and tomorrow – are digital natives. Instead of giving them digital tools they are familiar with, they are stuck with manual processes and antiquated equipment. Frustration builds and leads to continuous turnover.

A calm kitchen is one tap away.

It’s time to connect the commercial kitchen.

Digital tools are available to streamline every process in the commercial kitchen, yielding data for the manager to boost top-line revenue and automating protocols to make life less stressful for the staff.

We were born in the commercial kitchen.

You may ask what makes us so confident in our ability to deliver. It’s our history. We literally invented this space. Starting with Hardee’s in 1969 and KFC soon after, we were the secret weapon in their commercial kitchens that helped them ascend to the top of the QSR market.

And when operators chose to overhaul the front of house – a long-overdue upgrade to customer experience, it left the middle of the house as the next frontier to conquer.

And we had that terrain staked out and transforming a long time ago.

Headquartered in Stratford, CT, USA, since Neil Armstrong landed on the moon.
