The University of Arizona offers one of the finest college dining services in the country. The quality, variety, convenience, and healthy food options are unsurpassed. Our mission at the Arizona Student Unions is to set an example for the University and Tucson communities by offering programming, resources, and processes that enhance and promote its sustainability.
Recently, we installed the Frylow Technology in our most popular restaurant, The Cactus Grill, to see how it would work. Our entire staff was amazed by its performance. In that one restaurant alone, we will be saving over $4,500 a year on frying oil, we will be saving on our labor costs by changing the oil half as often, we will be reducing our impact on the environment by 50%, and the risk, to our mostly student-employees, for an injury or mishap with the hot oil during the change-out just got cut in half also.
