Working in the restaurant industry isn't just about whipping up delicious dishes and satisfying hungry customers. We know the nitty-gritty struggles that come with the job, and we're here to spill the beans.
From the high turnover of staff to the difficulty of tracking inventory, it's a juggling act to keep things running smoothly. And don't even get us started on managing chefs (they can be quite the handful).
Busy shifts leave equipment on by accident, and old, poorly maintained equipment can increase electrical use and costs. And don't even get us started on inconsistent handovers between managers.
It's tough to keep up with it all, especially when each restaurant has its own unique challenges. But we're determined to stay on top of things and be alerted when issues arise.
So, the next time you're dining out, remember the blood, sweat, and tears that go into the behind-the-scenes of your meal. They are doing their best to make it a memorable experience for you..
Helping You Take the Bite Out of Kitchen Costs!
Salamander grills, walk-in freezers, heating, and cooling devices - all equipment that consume a high level of energy and lead to skyrocketing energy bills. As if that wasn't enough, lack of competition in the energy supplier market has led to less competitive rates for restaurant businesses. No wonder companies are paying over 75p/kWh instead of the usual 15p/kWh.
Add to that the challenge of having a diverse mix of inherited outdated equipment, plus an ever-revolving door of staff leading to a loss of expertise, and you're practically swimming against the tides.
Upgrading and maintaining equipment is essential, but how do you know you're spending money in the right areas? And let's not forget the lack of accessible data that could help you make informed decisions.
It's tricky when you don't have an in-house energy monitoring expert, and outsourcing it is not always an option. Besides, with so much on your plate, you may end up pushing back energy-saving practices until "tomorrow."
But guess what, energy costs aren't going anywhere, and neither is the pressure to help the environment. So let's make a start - or rather, let's make it easy for you to start - with actionable solutions that can make a massive difference while saving your business from a financial drain.

Get The Right Data to Make Real Change with Our Property Bear!
Are you making changes to your energy consumption but unsure if they're working? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
Here's how to effectively track and analyse your energy usage:
First things first, don't drown in data. You need just the right amount to draw meaningful conclusions. Ideally, monthly data spanning several years will give you the insight you need to benchmark your energy usage and set goals for improvement.
But how do you compare apples to oranges? Every building has its unique blend of energy sources, whether it's gas, electric, or both. That's why we create simple benchmarks, like total energy per square meter per year, that allow you to compare your performance to other properties in your industry.
And what about those frigid months when your heating bill skyrockets? By plotting your monthly energy usage against outside temperatures, we can help you see how your energy consumption compares to your overall annual profile and take action accordingly.
Of course, data is useless unless it's shared. Our Property Bear makes it easy to share and analyze your energy data in real-time with your team, keeping everyone informed and accountable.
Don't just take our word for it. Clear, actionable data is the key to reducing your carbon footprint and saving money. So stop talking and start measuring – for the planet and your pocket.
A Bear-y Good Solution for Energy Monitoring!
Energy monitoring is a must-have for everyone, but it's a game-changer for businesses with multiple sites, various businesses under one roof, or complicated buildings.
It's hard to keep things straight when you're juggling lots of high-consumption equipment, separate teams, and different priorities.
With energy monitoring, you can easily benchmark your usage and find best practices to keep costs low. Plus, you'll get a bird's eye view of who's doing well and what needs improvement, so finance, operations, and maintenance staff can all work together better. And if you have multiple departments, well, energy monitoring is just the thing to keep everything running smoothly.
Are your energy-saving efforts actually working? Simply taking meter readings and switching to LED lights isn't enough. You need to analyze your data, but not too much-- just the right amount. Monthly data is the bare minimum, and it's even better if you have years of historical data to benchmark against. This will help you see how this month's consumption compares with the same month last year, which is a more reliable gauge than comparing to unrelated months.
But crunching numbers is just the first step. You also need to make the data easy to understand and take action on. After all, what good is data if it doesn't help you save energy? And it's not just about you - your team needs to be able to access and use the data as well.
