Powerhouse Dynamics Honored for Innovation with 2023 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award


BOSTON, July 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Powerhouse Dynamics, the leading enterprise-level Internet of Things (IoT) partner to the restaurant, foodservice, grocery, C-store, and retail industries, has received a 2023 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award for its Open Kitchen IoT platform from IoT Evolution World, a major website covering advances in IoT technologies from TMC and Crossfire Media.

Powerhouse Dynamics’s Open Kitchen platform for foodservice and restaurant brands enables clients to connect, analyze and control their equipment to improve operational and energy efficiency, reduce costs, automate tasks, increase food quality and safety, speed new recipes/limited-time promotions into the market, and help meet environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) goals.

“The solutions selected for this award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the multibillion-dollar IoT market today. It is my honor to congratulate Powerhouse Dynamics for their superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition,” said Jay Fiske, President of Powerhouse Dynamics, a Middleby (NASDAQ: MIDD) company. “Though the pandemic was hard on the restaurant and retail industries, Powerhouse Dynamics’s Open Kitchen IoT platform helped our foodservice customers maintain their strength and have been critical to their comeback. It is gratifying to be a part of our clients success stories.”

Open Kitchen’s equipment-brand-agnostic technology easily integrates with clients’ refrigerators, freezers, ovens, fryers, dish machines, HVAC, and more to deliver improvements across the enterprise. Monitoring equipment data and automating processes from the cloud makes everything easier—from ensuring compliance with HACCP food safety guidelines, to minimizing peak demand utility charges during the hot summer months.

The recognition from IoT Evolution World is the latest in a number of awards that Powerhouse Dynamics has received. For example, in 2022, Inspire Brands® honored the company with a Maverick Award as the company’s most innovative equipment supplier.
