Monterrey, Mexico, 22-May-2012 – Energy Advantage Inc., a global leader in providing total energy and environmental management services, is pleased to announce Premium Restaurant Brands (PRB) has selected Energy Advantage to complete a benchmark assessment of its Mexican restaurants chains, KFC and Pizza Hut. Energy Advantage will help PRB understand its current energy and environmental performance to identify energy savings opportunities at its restaurants.

A global leader in chicken and pizza, PRB operates over 350 restaurants across Mexico. With steadily rising energy costs and limited savings from recent energy efficiency projects, Energy Advantage will evaluate PRB’s restaurants to identify where its energy costs are being consumed. To begin, Energy Advantage will develop a baseline of its restaurants to zero in on areas where energy costs are significant.

“We are looking to maximize our potential energy savings and Energy Advantage’s benchmarking assessment is the perfect approach for us to get started,” says Javier Rancaño, Director General PRB. “Results from the assessment combined with Energy Advantage’s knowledge and expertise will help us develop realistic short and long term energy goals that will drive our energy management program.”

Energy Advantage will evaluate PRB restaurant’s energy data, behavioural and operational data and facility details by employing a mix of interviews, energy audits and baseline analysis. Results from the assessment will feed into the creation of PRB’s strategic energy and environmental plan.

“Energy Advantage is excited to work with PRB and help the restaurant chain uncover opportunities to reduce its energy costs and impact on the environment,” says Oscar Bartolini, Mexico Director, Energy Advantage. “Energy Advantage will help PRB understand how its energy performance compares to best practices and clearly identify opportunities for savings in three major categorizes: capital, operational and behavioural.”
