CCP secures Mendakota’s 19th hole

CCP secures Mendakota’s 19th hole

The Mendakota Country Club in Minnesota is steeped in history and has evolved into one of the finest private clubs in the Twin Cities area. Located where the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers meet, the impressive club house features panoramic views over the golf course, which makes it the perfect setting for fine dining, wedding ceremonies and receptions, social events and business meetings.

For many devotees, golf is more than just a sport: it’s a social occasion. Increasingly, the trend is for golf clubs to offer sophisticated hospitality. In a 2017-2018 private club trends report, the CMAA noted that national surveys continue to show that club dining operations represent the most popular amenity offered by clubs.

Mendakota Country Club is open year-round, and dining operations are under the watchful eye of Executive Chef, Michael Harper. With food safety a key priority in food service, Mr Harper must ensure his operations run smoothly when he is not on-site. This led to CCP being engaged to provide 24/7 wireless automated temperature monitoring at Club premises, rather than continuing with traditional paper-based manual checking methods, which can be unreliable.

Mr Chicoine, CCP Network North America’s President, commented that:

“Automated continuous temperature monitoring of refrigeration is far more reliable than manual checks. In using CCP’s low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) technology, Mendakota has immediately reduced its business risk”.

Life’s Great with CCP installed

Life’s Great with CCP installed

Mingara Recreation Club facilities are viewed by NSW Central Coast locals as a “life essential”. As part of its vision to make a significant contribution to the community, this club offers aquatic, fitness and athletics facilities, restaurants, cafes, bars, events and promotions.

In a highly competitive hospitality environment, clubs focus on affordable high-quality dining. However, unlike standard food service venues, hospitality operations in a large club is challenging. Under the one roof, clubs offer highly diverse food experiences with menus frequently changing.

Mingara offers some of the best dining experiences in the NSW Central Coast region. Food safety is a top priority. The club has recently installed CCP to support its hospitality business. Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise refrigeration performance.

Michael White, CCP CEO, said: “There are more than 1,300 registered clubs in New South Wales. At every club there is an increasing focus on hospitality. That means refrigeration systems are more mission critical than ever before. We offer an affordable solution to reduce the business risks associated with refrigeration failure.”

CCP offers a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached.

Web and mobile dashboards provide business intelligence and task management.

Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan joins the CCP Network

Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan joins the CCP Network

Meals on Wheels meal delivery services have been operating across Australia for many decades. Currently, there are over 600 centres across the country providing meal services and support to vulnerable members of the community (elderly and frail, and people who are younger with a disability) – enabling these people to remain independent and at home.

In NSW, the community-based not-for-profit organisation has been running for 60 years. Our latest client, Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan – part of the NSW network – supplies meals and support five days per week to people living within that local government area.
For food service operations dealing with vulnerable persons, food safety is critical.

Michael White, CCP CEO, said:

“I’m delighted to see another Meals on Wheels join the CCP Network. We offer a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached”.

The NSW Food Authority currently licenses around 1,200 businesses that provide food service to vulnerable persons, including: hospitals, aged care facilities, same-day aged care services, respite services, and certain “delivered meal” organisations like Meals on Wheels.

A recent NSW Food Authority industry forum report (1) has highlighted the importance of food safety when serving vulnerable persons.

“Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise operations”, Mr White said.

Web and mobile dashboards provide business intelligence and task management.

St Kilda’s Junction Cafe joins the CCP network

St Kilda’s Junction Cafe joins the CCP network

The Junction Café is located on the busy St Kilda Junction in Melbourne. The new owner, Michael Bradley, has wasted no time in rebuilding patronage by presenting an attractive menu, delicious coffee and attentive service.

Behind the scenes, the Junction Café is now a very different proposition. As a testimony to their focus on food safety and food quality, CCP has been installed in the café’s fridges.

“Refrigeration systems are critical to my business. When a fridge fails it causes significant business disruption. With CCP in my fridges, I’ll immediately know if there’s a problem. But more importantly, I want to know my fridges are doing their job of keeping food at the right temperatures to optimise safety and shelf-life,” Mr Bradley said.

CCP’s smart tags continuously monitor temperature controlled environments. Web and Mobile dashboards display critical control point information. Reports provide easy access to compliance and task management records. Configurable alerts are delivered via SMS, push notification and email. Business Intelligence reports provide enterprise and site level KPI’s.
