New alarm timers provide restaurants with simple solution to quality control management
Fresh Alarms are programmable timers which offer a simple yet innovative way for restaurant managers to effectively encourage repeat customers and avoid food safety hazards.
Restaurants are able to avoid customer dissatisfaction with restaurant cleanliness and inconsistency of food quality with these helpful reminders, which provide consistent quality by reminding staff to maintain washroom cleaning schedules and remind of specific training tasks, regularly rotate prepared food and perform food quality checks.
The timers surpass regular kitchen and cooking timers by reminding restaurant staff of various daily reoccurring tasks that can range from cleaning to cooking.
"Fresh Alarm reminders are made to ensure quality and consistency in restaurants," says Stefan Solvell, founder and president of Fresh Alarm. "Restaurant customers expect consistency in food quality and restaurant experience; our timers deliver the ability for restaurants to provide consistency in their control processes."
Easy to set and use, the timers are inexpensive to buy and require minimal training.
The most popular reminder, the Multi-Alarm is an ultra easy to set timer that has up to 37 auto-repeating daily alarms that can be set to go off on the hour and half hour. The Vibrating Pager has up to 12 daily auto-repeating alarms and will vibrate or beep when a task, such as 'restroom check', needs to be completed. The Talking Timer is an interval reminder that plays unique messages when a specific task needs to be completed such as 'brew coffee'.
The Fresh Alarm Vibrating Pager can be conveniently attached to an employee's belt. The Fresh Alarm Reminder Watch has up to 12 auto-repeating daily alarms and will nag the staff member until the task, such as 'freezer temperature check', is completed.
