Founded in 2009 and acquired by The Middleby Corporation in 2019, Powerhouse Dynamics is the leading provider of ”Internet of Things” (IoT)-based solutions to connect, analyze and control equipment and deliver enterprise-wide operational efficiencies to portfolios of commercial facilities.

Open Kitchen is a platform that connects commercial kitchen equipment to the Cloud, providing remote access to critical data-enabling, real-time performance monitoring. Foodservice operators and retailers are afforded a single view of their kitchen operations across all locations and all equipment.

Offering three applications that include “Connected Equipment,” “Food Safety,” and “Equipment and Energy Management,” – all as part of a Level 1 PCI Certified secure platform — Open Kitchen enables users to:

· Centralize HVAC, lighting, and equipment control to balance customer comfort and energy use with remote controls, monitoring and analytics

· Remotely distribute recipes and menus to ovens, fryers, and other critical equipment

· Monitor food prep and storage temperatures 24/7 via both direct equipment connectivity and, where appropriate, self-installable wireless sensors

· Leverage real-time, escalating alerts to be warned about food not stored or prepared at the proper temperatures or prepared for the right amount of time

· View proactive, configurable exception reports to spot equipment that may not be performing properly, consuming (oil, water, sanitizer, etc.) more than it should be, or not being operated properly

· Easily digitize checklists and capture temperature data that cannot be automated (using a Bluetooth probe) with a highly configurable mobile app that can even be used offline

· Track corrective actions taken – or not taken

· Fully automate HACCP Food Safety Reporting, and easily archive, search and distribute reports
