Burger King Corp. debuts new energy efficient restaurant in Germany

Burger King Corp. has announced that it broke new ground for the BK(R) brand last month with the unveiling of its new energy efficient BURGER KING(R) restaurant located in Waghäusel, Germany. According to the information provided, the eco-friendly design developed in cooperation with Wirsol Solar AG (Baden-Württemberg) utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and renewable energy to power one-third of the restaurant's energy consumption, thus reducing energy costs by 45 percent and the emission of CO2 by more than 1201 metric tons every year.

"This new energy-efficient restaurant uses renewable energy systems, such as solar photovoltaic and wind turbines that are estimated to save nearly half of this restaurant's yearly electricity costs," said Jonathan Fitzpatrick, senior vice president franchise operations for BKC's Europe, Middle East and Africa region. "Implementing these new green energy systems reduces the environmental impact and is another step in our ongoing commitment to our BK Positive Steps(R)corporate responsibility program."

The BURGER KING(R) system operates more than 12,100 restaurants in all 50 states and in 74 countries and U.S. territories worldwide. Approximately 90 percent of BURGER KING(R) restaurants are owned and operated by independent franchisees, many of them family-owned operations that have been in business for decades. (kbp)
