Kitchen Brains ... Who we are

In 1969, Ben Koether founded Food Automation Service Techniques, now known as Kitchen Brains, with the goal of helping restaurants overcome operational challenges. Our first product, the FASTRON cooking computer, had a simple single goal: serving the perfect french fry. Over the years, our products have evolved into smart devices controlling complex processes and application software for managing commercial kitchens and monitoring food safety.

Today, we operate a world-class manufacturing facility at our global headquarters in Stratford, Connecticut where we design, engineer and produce the latest electronic control devices. Our KB360 global applications connect these and other IOT devices across commercial kitchens, enabling management to view key performance indicators and send updates to locations, helping to assure quality and consistency, while reducing training and operational costs.
