Energy is one the most significant reoccurring expenses in the food service business. As a result, reducing energy usage produces the greatest measurable financial savings for food service retailers. According to the Edison Electric Institute, the cost of energy accounts for anywhere from three to eight percent of a food service chain’s total operating expense. Energy use costs are especially high for grocery stores and studies shows that a 10 percent reduction in energy costs for the average supermarket can boost net profit margins by as much as 16 percent and sales per square foot by $44.
In restaurants, similar numbers also in favorite for energy efficiency plans, where studies shows that a 10 percent reduction in energy costs for the average limited service restaurant can boost net profit margins by as much as 4 percent and sales per square foot by $17.
