John Michael Bodnar, CFO of Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q, was seeking a fast and efficient solution to his company's ballooning energy bills. Beyond reducing energy consumption and providing a quick return on investment, the solution had to be easy to use and not create an energy management burden for an already busy staff.
The 25 location restaurant group found the solution in EcoView™ Commercial, a cost effective, user-friendly energy efficiency system, designed specifically with the restaurant environment in mind.
Return on investment was almost immediate with Jim 'N Nick's realizing an average savings of $1,000 a month per store in electricity costs. During heating months, natural gas consumption was slashed by more than 16% per store, the equivalent to saving an additional $745 a month.
"With its affordability and robust capabilities, the EcoView system has been a boon that has all but eliminated our company's energy management burden while helping us glean greater operational profits," commented Mr Bodnar.
The system's success speaks for itself; it has been embraced by industry leaders such as Jim 'N Nick's as well as Burger King, Taco Bell and Arby's franchise operators. In every case customers have experienced returns on investment in less than a year.
