Casual Dining

Casual Dining

AN OVERVIEW

Lighting represents a significant opportunity for energy-efficiency improvements in casual dining reataurants because it represents a significant portion of the overall energy consumption of the average casual dining restaurant. Casual Dining restaurants work with tight profit lines, so any cost reduction creates a big impact on their bottom line.

While efficient lighting upgrades are often the opposite of a cost reduction: they often involve huge capital investments and very little return on investment. With FES, there is no downside. With zero capital investment, casual dining restaurants can enjoy the big rewards from energy efficient lighting: cash savings, positive impact on environment, better lighting levels and reduced maintenance.

The typical technology available in casual dining restaurants is a mix of Metal Halide and Fluorescent lighting. These technologies incur a great amount of lamp failures and maintenance requests. These keys issues can be solved by FES.
