My friends have been looking at me in a funny way for the last 7 plus years. You see, I’m in the lighting business, so every place I enter, the first thing I do is look up. It’s a habit now that seems to drive my wife crazy. I’m curious how the lighting looks, if all of the color temperatures match, if they have the correct lighting levels, etc. Until I started doing this, I didn’t realize how unbelievably hard it seems to be to make a clean, beautiful lighting plan work.
If you are the owner of a franchise location (or more than one), you know the importance of keeping the image of the brands you represent consistent. With traditional lighting technology, the color temperature, hours of life and energy usage vary based on the technology you use, how old the fixtures are, etc. That means if you open your first location one year and a second two years later, you may not be able to match the lighting between them. What can you do to make everything the same?
Moving into LED Lighting Solutions is the key. With the manufacturers we work with (including Philips, Cree, Toshiba, Lighting Science Group and others) we can give you a consistent lighting look across all of your locations. Every lamp will match, the output will be the same and we can easily take the lighting you have now, convert it to LED and save you between 50 and 75 percent of your energy cost on lighting. Add in the benefits of long life (50,000+ hours), long warranties (up to 10 years) and absolutely color consistency and you can see that LED is ideal for operators of franchise locations. The lighting is a huge part of making your product, both the storefront and your merchandise, look the same in the best possible manner.
