CHATTANOOGA, TN -- Five Star Food Service, based here, will retrofit its existing micromarket coolers and freezers and equip new ones with TriTeq Lock and Security LLC's health timer door locks over the next two years.

Elk Grove Village, IL-based TriTeq's Series 2000 FreshIQ health timer locks continually monitor the temperature and power source to the cooler. A function of time and over-temperature or a power outage will cause the glass door cooler/freezer to lock down to prevent the consumer from accessing product that is potentially unsafe.

TriTeq's FreshTraq onsite monitoring system provides the operator with remote diagnostics and locking and unlocking capability from a computer or smartphone.

Available for both single- and double-door models, the NAMA-certified and NSF-compliant FreshIQ lock can retrofit coolers and freezers from the following manufacturers: Habco, Imbera, Liebherr, MinusForty, Mimet, Royal, QBD, True, Pro-Cool and FrigoGlass.

Founded in 1993, Five Star Food Service has grown to one of the largest privately held operators in the U.S. and is a franchise of Canteen Vending.
