Their products are key components found in the kitchens of major restaurants around the world including Hardees, KFC and McDonalds, as well as, the equipment manufacturers that serve them.
â€śYou may not know it, but every time you go to a fast food restaurant, your food may have been prepared using a Kitchen Brains product,â€ť said Murphy.
Kitchen Brains has been specializing in designing, engineering and manufacturing innovative controllers, sensors and loT solutions for commercial kitchens for the past 50 years. They recently launched, QPM v4.1 over the summer, their latest software that employs predictive data and tracks current store activities to optimize product availability and freshness for quick service restaurants.

â€śWe are proud of our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and even more proud to maintain our facility in Stratford.
