After 26 years in business, Superior Restaurant Group recently acquired 26 Wendy’s Quick Serve Restaurants (QSR), bringing the organization’s total restaurant portfolio to 32 individual locations in NJ, North Carolina and Virginia. Shortly after purchasing the 26 QSRs, owners Robert Cammarano, chairman, and Todd Bialow, CEO, discovered that location thermostats were constantly set too low at 59 degrees, causing moisture to build up on the floors and ceilings, in turn creating maintenance issues inside stores and potentially the rooftop units themselves.
“It was a common theme that we witnessed in many places,” Bialow said. “Some stores didn’t have thermostats in the right place and others didn’t have any at all. One of the first things we had to do was program the thermostats correctly and then set the status of the units themselves.
In addition to HVAC issues, many store lights needed major upgrades to improve restaurant aesthetics for customers and employees, and the lights were not energy efficient or properly controlled.
“There were different types of lighting inside and outside restaurants, none of them were high efficiency LED lighting. Finding someone to maintain them was also extremely difficult in this environment, ”said Cammarano.
Superior Restaurant Group has found Budderfly to be the complete solution for all of their energy management issues with a one-stop, cost-free and effortless offering.
