Budderfly announced a partnership with Centralized Supply Chain Services (CSCS), the exclusive supply chain cooperative for the IHOP and Applebee’s systems.
"The new master supplier agreement makes available a customized energy efficiency program for its [CSCS] 3,300+ Member restaurants to upgrade lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and cooking equipment at no out-of-pocket cost," Budderfly said
"Budderfly will provide new equipment to participating Franchisees that reduces overall energy consumption in each restaurant to guarantee immediate energy savings and carbon footprint reduction. Typically, Franchisees must invest their own money into equipment upgrades, maintenance, and repairs, taking on all the risk to ensure upgrades are successful and yield return on investment. This has made the upfront cost of equipment, facility, and efficiency upgrades daunting and often impossible. CSCS’s new program with Budderfly gives participating Franchisees the option to outsource their energy management with no expenditure. Plus, Budderfly is a single-vendor solution that takes care of the upgrade investments, project management, installation, ongoing maintenance, and monitoring," Budderfly said
Upgrades for CSCS Members may include LED lighting, HVAC system upgrades and replacements, cloud-connected thermostats that enable automation and remote control, and more.
