How Therma° saved Eggs Up Grill $1,000 in one month
From Power Outages to Power Moves: Eggs Up Grill's Journey with Therma°
Background: battling the elements at Eggs Up Grill
Eggs Up Grill is located in the hurricane belt, an area known for frequent power outages due to hurricanes. This posed two significant challenges for the restaurant: safeguarding their inventory from going bad and avoiding the high labor costs associated with redoing dishes that contain discarded food.
The absence of a monitoring system for their refrigeration and freezer units made their situation worse. However, every problem has a solution, and for Eggs Up Grill, that solution was Therma°.
Therma° installation: a game-changer for food safety
Therma° proved to be a lifesaver for Eggs Up Grill. The installation process was refreshingly simple, yet the outcomes were profound. Instantaneously, the restaurant had a guardian in place—offering 24/7 surveillance of their cooling equipment.
The true worth of this vigilant system became apparent when the owner received a timely Therma° alert during a vacation. The alert indicated a gradual but steady increase in temperature in one of the coolers—a detail that the staff on site might have overlooked.
With the help of the alerts from Therma°, the owner was able to take swift action. He remotely instructed his team to relocate the food and carry out the necessary repairs. This proactive approach saved Eggs Up Grill $1,000 that would have been wasted on spoiled food and additional labor costs.
Beyond savings: ROI and continued expansion
The monetary savings make for a compelling narrative, but there's an even larger tale of triumph here. Therma° didn't just serve as a cost-saving tool; it emerged as a value magnifier, showcasing an astonishing 25x return on the initial investment.
This level of ROI is not merely about dollar signs; it embodies operational resilience, brand protection, and the peace of mind that every restaurant owner yearns for.
Another ROI driver is the labor costs for re-prepping food that had to
get thrown out due to spoilage—that can be hours of time!
