Temptee Specialty Foods started in 1962 as a small supplier of roast beef to mom and pop grocery stores and local diners in the Denver region. The focus eventually shifted to meet customer demands, first to deli products and then to products with more menu flexibility and a reliable convenience standard. This expanded their market more effectively into the food service division. With the rise of fast casual restaurants in the 90’s, more customers were demanding fresh not frozen products. Temptee was able to accommodate the new trend to become the protein supplier for the widely known Chipotle Mexican food restaurants, followed by Noodles and Company and Qdoba.
Temptee’s manual systems strained under the pressure of higher volumes and a faster paced operation. The company needed a system that would enable them to provide real-time data cross-departmentally to help keep everyone on the same page. This was not only vital to their operations now but was necessary as the company grew. ParityFactory was integrated into all areas of production which improved the management of inventory, provided real-time data, and reduced overall labor costs.
