HAPPY HONCHOS

"As a grocer, I have always been committed to providing our customers with the finest products and shopping experience. Our industry faces numerous challenges. As all retailers know, along with rising credit card costs, utility costs are getting out of control and difficult to forecast. Aware of all the challenges of running a large supermarket company, we partnered with Fridgewize to tackle this utility costs. It was one of the most beneficial decisions we've ever made.

Fridgewize's innovative energy-saving solutions have completely transformed how our supermarkets consume energy. One of our most significant areas is refrigeration, which accounts for a substantial portion of our energy costs. With Fridgewize's advanced technology, we saw an immediate impact on improving our bottom line. Energy savings surpassed expectations, exceeding the promised efficiency range and saving us more money.

Overall, Fridgewize has been a game-changer for our supermarket. The energy savings and operational cost reductions have been substantial, allowing us to focus on what matters most—our customers. We highly recommend Fridgewize to any grocer looking to optimize energy usage, save on operational costs, and positively impact the environment.“
