Tony’s Fine Foods Selects PAR Logistics Management Systems as Key to Delivering Freshness with their Refrigerated Fleet

PAR Logistics Management Systems (PAR LMS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR), today announced that Tony’s Fine Foods will install its Two-Way Reefer Monitoring and Control System throughout its refrigerated fleet of 156 trailers serving markets in six states.  Joining more than 100 customers, Tony’s Fine Foods chose PAR LMS because of their outstanding customer service, industry expertise and superior refrigerated technology.

Tony’s Fine Foods is the largest privately owned distributor of deli, bakery, food service, specialty, and perishable products in Northern California. Tony’s is committed to providing quality products, exceptional customer service, and innovative logistical solutions to a wide variety of food industry establishments. Now a third generation family-owned business, the employees of Tony’s follow the tradition of integrity, hard work, and exceptional customer service established by their founder, Tony Ingoglia Senior, in 1934.

“The PAR system assures we maintain the proper temperature of our product, which is vital to meeting our commitment to quality customer service,” said Ron Selders, Vice President of operations for Tony’s Fine Foods. “Before PAR, once the driver left our facility we had no way to ensure the proper product temperature was maintained throughout transit. Now with PAR’s technology, we have visibility and control of the product temperature from the minute it leaves our facility until it is delivered to the customer.”

The PAR two-way reefer system generates the information needed to monitor and control refrigerated trailer temperatures, react and respond to alarms, and optimize logistics and management of cold chain assets and resources. Customized reporting provides users with alerts and alarms on variances to refrigerated trailer temperatures

  • operability
  • low fuel
  • abnormal/excessive fuel consumption
  • excessive dwell time.

If cold chain requirements call for temperature monitoring at the product level, PAR provides an independent hard-wired product temperature probe to monitor and report every 15 minutes.

“Our cold chain management system met Tony’s stringent requirements for real-time temperature monitoring with the ability to remotely control the refrigerated trailers when necessary,” said John Sammon III, President, PAR LMS. “Tony’s Fine Foods is a strong brand that we’re proud to add to our growing number of customers in the ‘cold chain’ industry.”

PAR LMS will exhibit and demonstrate the company’s food service monitoring products and services in Booth 307 of the IFDA’s Distribution Solutions Conference, October 24-25, 2011, at the Fort Worth Convention Center located in Fort Worth, Texas.
