BEST’s South African partner, EnergyRite has been working with Moral Foods, a local franchisee of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). In a short space of time, they have generated impressive savings for two pilot stores. Moral Food’s owner, Mr. Rughubeer contacted Scott Fuller, EnergyRite’s Managing Director, after hearing about the savings the company had achieved for another local business.
Over six months, Energyrite were able to generate a total of R148,190 (around £8,500) of savings across the two stores’ electric bills, cutting nearly a quarter (24%) of their total monthly electrical consumption.
In simple terms, this could be equated to the cost of providing 5,951 Streetwise 2 meals to customers.
However, the energy savings don’t stop there, Scott and the team at EnergyRite have been given the green light to extend the pilot to the remaining 13 stores and are already in the process of identifying further reductions across those
The success has opened up doors with other franchisees across the region, with negotiations for a further 150 stores already underway, and the potential to install across the 900 KFC franchises within South Africa in the future.
Moral Foods owner, Mr. Rughubeer says, “We are delighted with the results EnergyRite have been able to achieve, they have exceeded our expectations.”
Jesper and the team installed Eniscope at four locations considered ‘typical’ of the full portfolio.
In terms of raw figures, the full rollout equates (so far) to some incredible savings.
