Protect your investment with KitchenCare’s Extended Warranty program

Give yourself peace of mind by protecting your equipment investment with a Welbilt KitchenCare Extended Warranty. An extended warranty allows operators to manage repair costs beyond the original manufacturers warranty, including parts and labor.

Your Welbilt KitchenCare extended warranty coverage, including all terms and conditions, is identical to the Welbilt factory warranty that you received when you purchased your equipment. This full factory warranty would now be extended by one extra year from the effective start date of that warranty.

Who We Are Connecting With

Franchisee Owners

QSR (Quick Serve Restaurants)

QSRs require continually enhanced fast delivery of consistent, high-quality food and the ability to measure customer satisfaction. The ability to easily access data related to equipment operation and performance ensures the highest quality food delivered at the fastest possible speed. Equipment connectivity puts this information at operator’s fingertips and makes it possible to manage recipes and menu offerings, as well as equipment firmware updates with the push of a button to one or multiple locations.

Fast Casual Restaurants

Fast Casual restaurants are driven by their ability to provide customized, freshly prepared, high quality meals while delivering a relaxing dine-in experience to their customers. Profitability and brand equity are achieved through customer desired menu offerings, consistently prepared without outages or service delays. Equipment connectivity makes it possible to identify the popularity of menu items, control inventory, and minimize service delays. Brand equity is protected when the connected kitchen provides the dine-in experience expected by customers.

Convenience Stores

Convenience Stores are challenged to continually improve the quality, taste, freshness and healthfulness of their food as they compete to attract customers from other established foodservice providers. They must leverage their strength, convenience, to attract customers who are increasingly looking for meal solutions that in addition to being convenient are easy, effortless, safe and efficient to obtain. Their customer base is looking for value at a low price point so their foodservice operations must be extremely efficient to meet these expectations. Equipment connectivity can provide these efficiencies through data solutions for inventory control, food safety, energy and consumables management, proper equipment operation and preventative maintenance.


Hotel/Resorts have diverse food operations in multiple locations under the same roof. The asset management capability of connected equipment, allows managers to use the IoT to make smarter resource decisions. Connected devices enable the integration of systems, giving a greater level of equipment control that maximizes utilization, efficiency and performance. Outside food delivery brought quickly to customers has been a great challenge against which hotels must compete. Data from smart equipment allows the early identification of customer use trends so that offerings can be tailored to customer needs. This allows the forging of closer connections to their customer base and builds customer loyalty.
