Ecova manages energy cost and consumption for nearly 70 leading quick serve and casual dining brands with portfolios totaling more than 15,000 sites. Restaurant businesses are intensive energy consumers, spending around 75 percent of their utility budgets on electricity alone. Despite electricity costs that are forecast to rise 8 percent through 2025, Ecova clients consistently achieve an average 12 percent year-over-year reduction in kWh per square foot.
“Ecova has architected and implemented a sustainability program that has helped us reduce costs, gain a greater understanding of our resource consumption, engage the right people to take action, and ensure we have a roadmap for future success.”
