LED Lighting for Casual Dining

Keeping a restaurant profitable can be difficult, especially in today's market. It's critical that restaurant owners take a close look at their operating expenses to find ways to reduce costs and free up capital.

Many casual restaurants still use outdated lighting technologies that waste energy, require higher maintenance, and lose brightness quickly.

The Cost of Lighting a Diner

Lighting actually accounts for a significant portion of the overall energy consumption of the average casual dining restaurant.

The average fast food restaurant runs:

  • led lighting fixtures 24 lights
  • hours per day for retail lights For 12 hours a day
  • days per year for retail lights 357 days a year
  • energy costs for retail shopping plazas At an average cost of $0.12 per kWh
Even a small decrease in energy usage can create a big impact on a casual restaurant’s bottom line.
