Connectedcontrol Helps One Of Denver’s Top Diners Save On Energy
Opened in 1988, McCoy’s Family Restaurant has become a staple for classic diner food in Denver. Whether it’s their chicken-fried steak or unforgettable cinnamon rolls, the eatery has been devoted to serving patrons with tasty, comforting food, which earned it Westword’s Best 24/7 Restaurant award in 2017.
As if running a restaurant with more than 40 employees wasn’t challenging enough, chef and owner Bob Holloway had to consistently check the temperatures of his food storage. This was made even more important as he keeps over $20,000 in inventory in his six coolers and freezers.
Furthermore, in a large older building, the employees would often start changing the thermostats but forget to change them back. Either they were leaving the HVACs on nonstop or continuously switching them on and off.
WoodRiver Energy’s team worked with Bob to customize ConnectedControl for his needs and facility with refrigeration and freezer monitoring, HVAC control and monitoring, and more. WoodRiver’s turnkey approach meant that installation was seamless and trouble-free.
Inventory Protection – The system has saved Bob thousands in inventory loss and ensured the quality of his food with refrigeration and freezer monitoring with actionable alerts.
Insurance Savings – With ConnectedControl in place, Bob’s insurance provider has reduced his insurance premiums.
Turnkey Installation – WoodRiver’s team designed and installed the system to ensure a quick installation without disrupting the restaurant’s operations.
HVAC Health Report – With ConnectedControl’s HVAC Scope Test, Bob no longer has to call an onsite technician for seasonable maintenance. Bob can request the HVAC Scope Test and received an HVAC health report.
Projected 5-Year Operating Savings
Total Savings: $33,060
“Beyond energy savings, ConnectedControl has given me peace of mind when it comes to managing my restaurant. From HVAC to refrigeration, I can access all of my vital electrical equipment with a press of a button to ensure everything is working properly.”
