Wendy's rolls out the CATALYST

Wendy's has worked with Transformative Wave to install the CATALYST in 79 company owned restaurants across six states. Wendy's has found the program to be a resounding success.

From the Wendy's 2020 Good Done Right report:

"Also in 2020, Wendy’s installed Transformative Wave HVAC upgrades and ventilation control solutions at 79 Company-operated restaurants. Transformative Wave reduces the HVAC energy needed while improving the temperature, ventilation control, and overall comfort. The ventilation system at these restaurants is continuously monitored and adjusted to ensure energy savings and active ventilation control. Our initial pilot locations have now been in operation for one year, with energy use down 15% and GHG emissions down by 10% in 2020 compared to 2019."

McDonald's lowers energy costs & gains visibility into HVAC Operations

An essential part of maintaining a successful quick serve restaurant includes customer comfort through effective temperature control. At the same time, HVAC rooftop unit (RTU) usage accounts for nearly 30% of total utility expenses for a business. See how one franchisee achieved savings with the CATALYST 

Maintain proper space pressurization with CATALYST.

It’s long been felt that quick-serve and full-serve restaurants cannot take advantage of certain energy saving control technologies for HVAC systems out of concern that the restaurant atmosphere would be jeopardized, especially when it comes to customer comfort and building pressurization. See the white paper to get details on how the CATALYST can maintain proper building pressure control without compromising customer comfort.
