The National Restaurant Association Show 2013

In May of 2013, the team at ChefPad Pro traveled from various locations across the country, coming together to attend their first NRA Show as exhibitors of the ChefPad Pro Tablet and Software. 

Over the course of the four day event, the team provided hands-on activates and live demonstrations. Each person who approached the booth had the opportunity to experience all the possibilities ChefPad has to offer. A few of the frequently awe-inspiring features included the touch screen, which enables the user to zoom in on recipe images. The Wi-Fi printer, allows the user to select the print button and watch the selected label print remotely. During several live demonstrations, the ChefPad Pro windows based tablet was purposely dropped on the floor to prove its rugged exterior is more than just good looks. 

ChefPad Pro received a warm welcome at their NRA debute, the reaction from show attendees was overwhelmingly positive. To all those who attended and supported us at the NRA show in 2013, we would like to say thank you!

The Paperless Kitchen!

The ChefPad Pro
is a digital recipe device that will transform any restaurant operation into a virtual 
“Paperless Kitchen.”

Based on our extensive kitchen operations experience we recognize that a kitchen tablet needs to meet certain criteria for water, dust, vibration and shock resistance. It must be able to operate in a wide range of environments from freezer to cook line, and it most certainly needs to be cost effective. Our easy to use touch screen menu is battery powered and temperature resistant to be transported to walk-in coolers or dry storage, ensuring that your chefs can gather ingredients for any recipe. Beyond kitchen use, the ChefPad Pro is an effective training tool when used for server and bartender training.

For the small local chains, the ChefPad Pro makes it easy to run specials while keeping recipes and trainings organized. Large corporate chains have the ability to do multiple new menu roll outs instantly, without expensive color printing or postage.  Recipe updates are transmitted from the company’s corporate office or back of house computer, and then downloaded via a WiFi Internet connection and stored on the tablet. Whatever the size of your concept, ChefPad Pro eliminates wasted management time in updating of recipe manuals.
