QSR Magazine - Budderfly, the premier sustainability partner for businesses with repeatable footprints, announced a corporate partnership with restaurant platform company Craveworthy Brands to drive down energy consumption at Cravewothy’s corporate and franchise-owned restaurants. Craveworthy Brands owns, operates, and franchises multiple restaurant brands across the country, including Genghis Grill: where Budderfly’s Energy as a Service (EaaS) offering will first be rolled out to 21 corporate-owned restaurant locations and 11 franchise locations over time, generating an estimated 30 percent reduction in energy usage at each site. This corporate partnership underscores the impact and scalability of Budderfly’s solution. The cost-saving and sustainability outcomes stemming from this partnership will establish a new benchmark for sustainability across the approximately 200 other current and planned restaurant locations within the Craveworthy umbrella. 

Craveworthy Brands is a restaurant hospitality platform that connects brands with solutions across all aspects of operations, to help grow their business, including advising owners and operators on essential technology stacks that improve operational efficiencies and support sustained innovation. Budderfly will install, monitor, and manage a combination of patented technologies and high-efficiency equipment including HVACs, LED lighting, refrigeration controls, water conservation systems such as smart valves, low-flow toilets, and foot pedal sinks, smart panels, sensors and more – at no upfront cost. Budderfly’s in-house expertise and growing tech-enabled capabilities will drive maximized and long-term positive outcomes for Craveworthy Brands restaurant locations over a 10-year period.

“Craveworthy Brands is laser-focused on fostering growth and success for our brands and that can only be done when franchisees and operators are winning. They truly are the backbone of our own success,” said Gregg Majewski, CEO and founder of Craveworthy Brands and former CEO of Jimmy Johns. “Budderfly’s forward-thinking and outcome-driven business model is the innovative approach to sustainability that we’re looking for to ensure that we provide our franchisees with the support they need to operate out of tech-enabled facilities built to provide better returns for the brand, franchisees, and planet.”

Budderfly’s holistic offering will improve the overall building environment, including air quality, functionality, aesthetics, and comfort for customers and employees. Budderfly also offers real-time monitoring and reporting capabilities so that restaurant operators can access valuable data about their energy consumption, monthly savings, and carbon footprint reduction.

“Food service buildings, such as quick service and fast casual restaurants, are among the most energy-intensive commercial building types, subjecting franchise owners to sky-high electricity bills and a significant carbon footprint,” said Al Subbloie, chief executive officer and founder of Budderfly. “We’re excited to expand our work shaping the energy future for the food service industry in partnership with Craveworthy Brands. The company shares in our commitment to support the millions of mid-market U.S. businesses that empower our economy and, now, can help enable a resilient and sustainable future.”

This partnership adds to Budderfly’s robust portfolio of over 6,000 customer sites, including restaurant franchises, retail, healthcare, fitness centers, schools, and more.
