Firehouse Subs is a US-based fast food restaurant founded by former firefighters. Currently, they can be found in 1,095 locations across 44 states. TEU Services upgraded the location in Murfreesboro, TN.
The common area lighting was 4' fluorescents, the track lights that illuminated the pictures and menu on the walls were CFL bulbs and the pendant lights were incandescents. The fluorescents flickered and took time to come to full brightness and all the lights radiated heat.
Firehouse Subs was ready for energy efficient LED lighting and a maintenance reduction.
TEU retrofitted all the fixtures with 5000 Kelvin to bring out the featured firehouse red in the restaurant. Electric consumption was cut by over 66%. Maintenance was greatly reduced and the majority of the heat produced from the traditional lights was removed. The LED upgrade improved the light quality and created light uniformity throughout the restaurant.
