Squadle Introduces Food Safety Platform For Pizza Operations

Keeps both food and employees safe throughout baking and distribution processes with operational compliance, food waste tracking, equipment calibration, and temperature management

Squadle, a workflow automation company that enables multi-unit operators to simplify complex operations and streamline food safety, today announced Squadle for Pizza, an industry-specific offering that helps brands implement digital automation through best in class software and hardware. Squadle for Pizza was built specifically for the complex procedures that each pizza operation faces, from managing fresh ingredients across the food prep line to streamlining delivery logistics.

“Every day, pizza operators take uncooked food — from cheese to tomatoes, meat and dough — and turn it into the pizzas we all love and enjoy,” said Charlie Piper, President and CEO, Squadle, Inc. “Upping their food safety standards and processes will ensure that food safety is maintained throughout the pizza journey and that both restaurant personnel and customers remain safe as well.”

Squadle for Pizza brings operational compliance, food waste tracking, equipment calibration, and temperature management to pizza brands and their franchisees. The fully customizable Squadle platform includes:

Digital Workflows – Enables pizza brands to fully digitize their paper-based manager playbooks, checklists, and compliance forms to ensure higher completion rates, leading to more efficient operations and better customer experiences. Digital checklists offer clear visibility into task completion and compliance for both managers and team members.

Employee Check-in/Shift Management – Operational compliance checklists include pre-shift checks, equipment calibrations, shift notes, and more. Specifically for pizza brands, it also automates checking out car toppers and recording mileage on delivery vehicles. Managers can also monitor compliance and completion rates through an online dashboard, mobile app, real-time alerts, and automated daily emails.

Equipment Maintenance – Automating temperature and speed of pizza ovens can ensure great product consistency.

Remote Temperature Monitoring – Considering how important refrigeration is to ensuring food safety, both in the back of the house as well as on the floor, being able to oversee the temperatures of storage is key to a successful business.

Cash Control – Helps monitor delivery and other employees that interact with cash through their shifts.

Compliance Time Control – Pizza brands use Time as a Public Health Control (TPHC) for keeping food hot (135°F or above) or cold (41°F or below), like pizza by the slice, or a salad bar. Squadle helps track and monitor the food once it is properly cooked or removed from a refrigerator to ensure it is not kept past its “throw away” time.
