“... we have achieved all these benefits while bringing down our energy consumption thereby supporting our cause towards a clean and green environment. Our customers are saying 'I'm loving it' and we're saying 'I'm loving it'.” - Vinay Halambi, General Manager – Projects, McDonalds India – West & South
McDonald’s is the world’s leading food service retailer with more than 31,000 restaurants in 119 countries serving more than 50 million customers each day. Celebrating over 12 years of leadership in food service retailing in India, McDonald’s now has a network of over 160 restaurants across the country, with its first restaurant launch way back in 1996. Prior to its launch, the company invested four years to develop its unique cold chain, which has brought about a veritable revolution in food handling, immensely benefiting the farmers at one end and enabling customers to get the highest quality food products, absolutely fresh and at a great value. McDonalds as a company is very sensitive towards its environment responsibility and has always encouraged innovations to reduce their carbon foot prints. Among the various initiatives, LED lighting is one of the key areas of impact.
Vinay Halambi, General Manager – Projects, McDonalds India – West & South, says - "We have managed to reduce our energy consumption with an added benefit of a near-zero maintenance of the light fixtures so now the store really does not have to worry about the repair and maintenance of the light fixtures during the operational hours. Philips LED fixtures have managed to deliver a consistent light output and stable colour performance which has resulted in delivering a very warm and welcoming experience for our customers. The interesting part is we have achieved all these benefits while bringing down our energy consumption thereby supporting our cause towards a clean and green environment. Our customers are saying 'I'm loving it' and we're saying 'I'm loving it'."
On the lighting front the challenge was to create an inviting and warm ambiance for the customers without worrying about the repair and maintenance of the light fixture during the operational hours. Philips LEDO LED down lighters were used.
