Lighting for Commercial Foodservice

Efficient lighting is an easy way to save energy in a commercial food service operation but it's important to make sure that the lighting fits the mood, décor and function.

Using the latest technologies in solid state (LED) lighting, it is possible to illuminate the front of house in a way that is appealing and inviting to your customers while cutting energy costs by 75% or more.

Attendees will learn:

  • Lamp types most appropriate for new installs or easy retrofit into retail/foodservice.
  • The difference between quality lighting and poor lighting, why it matters in food service and why some products don't work.
  • How to read the Lighting Facts label and how to use it as tool to make better purchasing decisions.
  • How to use simple online calculators to determine savings.
