Hollymatic was founded to solve a problem. Inconsistent patty size was partially due to the amount a variability of the labor needed to make a patty. This also led to inconsistent cook times and food waste. An easier, more efficient way had to be found to make standard-sized patties. Mr. Holly first invented a wood version of the machine and it has grown into a multi-faceted steel version of the Patty Machine, as well as many related products.
