CEO Connection® is proud to recognize Restaurant Technologies, led by CEO Jeffrey R. Kiesel, as the winner of the 2018 Mid-Market Company of the Year Award.

This annual award is given to the company that embodies the highest standards of leadership in both business and society.

Restaurant Technologies represents the very best of the mid-market and showcases the most collaborative, strategic, and insightful teams working at the mid-level between industry icons and scrappy newcomers.  

Led by CEO Jeffrey R. Kiesel, a seasoned executive with 25 years of leadership experience, Restaurant Technologies has earned its position as an uncontested mid-market leader in food service safety and management solutions.

Protecting workers from injury and owners from financial loss can be a challenging job, but Kiesel and his team are up to the task, and have the 20-year track record to prove it. Oil delivery, containment, transport, and disposal present high-risk challenges in chaotic restaurant environments with limited space and access. Under Kiesel’s leadership, Restaurant Technologies offers beginning-to-end systems for oil transportation, full-service fryer filtration monitoring, and cleaning systems for hoods, flues, and fans.

“We are so pleased to be recognized with the Company of the Year award, especially given the caliber of its past recipients,” said Kiesel. “This acknowledgment is a testament to our team’s passion for making the restaurant workplace safer, smarter and more efficient with our game-changing solutions.”

Company of the Year Award candidates are nominated by the community at large, then are referred to the selection committee that reviews and identifies a short list of finalists. A second committee, comprised of prior award recipients, makes the final award selection. Previous Mid-Market Company of the Year Award Recipients include Key Safety Systems (2017), LinkedIn (2016), and Zulily (2015).
