Many utilities are finding the restaurant sector to be a difficult industry to recruit to customer-facing programs and engage in strategic relationships. However, it’s not the one to overlook. We help utility account managers deepen their understanding of the food service industry’s energy profile and some of the common elements of success in reaching out to restaurant owners. This Sector Snapshot provides industry-specific energy data, offers recommendations for no-cost and low-cost energy-efficiency measures for restaurant operators, and highlights the latest developments in kitchen technology that are good candidates for incentives. By guiding your customers to a valuable opportunity, you are not only helping them to achieve their profit goals—you may also help them to stay in business.
