As a first-time exhibitor at the National Restaurant Association’s annual conference and exhibit, held May 5-8 in Chicago, LonMark International showcased energy management solutions to the 58,000+ attendees representing all aspects of the restaurant industry. With the help of LonMark members Distech Controls, Franke and Small Box Energy, LonMark was successful in educating industry professionals on the energy-efficiency, resource- and cost-savings potential of solutions while establishing the LonMark brand as an important standard that enables automated food service equipment and smark kitchens.

Several major brands visited the LonMark booth specifically looking for energy management solutions, including Yum! Brands, Dunkin’ Donuts and Chick-fil-A.
