TurboChef Technologies, Inc., produces high-speed ovens using a combination of cooking technologies. The company’s products cook food in a fraction of the time taken by conventional ovens, with quality said to be suitable enough for the finest restaurants. The products have primarily been marketed to convenience stores, sports arenas, movie theaters, restaurants, and others seeking easy-to-use, compact, high performance cooking solutions. One of the company’s most visible customers is the 22,000-unit Subway sandwich chain, which in 2004 signed TurboChef to be its exclusive provider of high-speed ovens. TurboChef has also aimed for the higher end of the home market. Once primarily a technology licensing company, in 2001 TurboChef transitioned into a manufacturing and marketing organization, securing a production partner in China.
