NRA urges operators to complete the Energy Star for Restaurants survey

The Louisiana Restaurant Association and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) need your help by filling out the 2013 Food Service Energy and Water Survey at

We know you are extremely busy, but please submit your data by December 20, 2013.

Along with the potential for an Energy Star certification in the future, you could win a $450 American Express gift card for supplying your data!

The NRA, the Restaurant Facility Management Association, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department Of Energy are trying to establish an Energy Star building energy performance score for restaurants.

Why is this a big deal? Because 92% of consumers recognize the Energy Star brand and energy-efficient restaurants could place an Energy Star plaque on their building.

The survey and instructions are available at:

The NRA also developed a set of webinars to help you get started:
        Why and How to Start
        Overview of Utility Bills
        Excel How To + Tips and Tricks

All identifying information will be removed by a third-party from the data prior to submission to EPA for Energy Star analysis. This information includes the establishment name and property address, as well as contact or other information about owners, operators, and tenants.
