Introducing the Flat Bread Toaster from Antunes
The latest addition to our lineup of toasters is the Flat Bread Toaster, or GST-1H. Launched this spring, the GST-1H can heat pre-cooked tortillas to 160ºF (71ºC) in approximately six seconds and uncooked flour tortillas to 160ºF (71ºC) in approximately 12 seconds.
Fast-casual, casual and QSR chains with menu items that feature pitas, tortillas or flatbreads are meeting a variety of current foodservice trends but need an efficient way to heat the wraps.
Our Flat Bread Toaster heats to a consistent temperature and toast profile, as opposed to heating wraps in a microwave or taking up space on a flat-top grill — giving operators an ideal solution for their flatbread needs with a dedicated, customizable product.

Case Study: Addressing the "Fresh" Trend with the Egg Station
Through market research and focus groups, a U.S. bagel and coffee chain found that “fresh” was a strong trend and that there was an increased industry focus on having a fresher, more health-conscious menu.
With this focus on fresh, the chain was looking to transition away from cooking eggs using a high-powered microwave and polycarbonate bowls — and they found their solution in the Egg Station from Antunes.

Video: Dual Zone Egg Station in Action
Need to cook eggs on demand? Not a problem for our NRA Kitchen Innovation Award-winning Egg Station with Dual Zone.
This Egg Station design separates the grill surface into two areas for cooking smaller batches of eggs independent of one another. Whether it's 12 at a time or an individual order, the ESDZ-1200 cooks great-tasting eggs throughout the day.
