Middleby Acquires a Taste for Fries


The Middleby Corporation today announced the acquisition of RAM Fry Dispensers, which makes automated frozen fry dispensing equipment used in foodservice. It was unit of Automated Equipment LLC based in Red Wing, Minn.

“The addition of RAM enhances our restaurant automation portfolio. In the current market, operators are in need of solutions to address labor costs and availability. As an innovation leader, the RAM automated fry dispenser also manages portion control through inductive basket sensors, decreasing food waste and promoting a higher quality cooking environment,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of Middleby. “This is a natural extension of our best-in-class fryer brands. RAM is currently in use with many large global restaurant chains. We expect to further develop and integrate this solution with our existing products.”

The RAM Fry Dispenser units operate by releasing portion-controlled frozen product directly from the freezer into fry baskets, allowing fries to be cooked directly from frozen. The fries are loaded in the baskets, and then removed and placed in the fryer for cooking.
