There are many things which are important to consider for owners of independent catering businesses: you need to find their niche, consider their location, build a great team and pick their suppliers carefully; however, you also need keep a close eye on regular outgoings such as energy bills. Energy is a key expense for small catering businesses which makes it a crucial area for these businesses to save money and take control of their finances.
Running an independent restaurant, coffee shop or bar is a round-the-clock job and for business owners, supplying energy readings is often not a top priority. Smart meters can help! Smart meters send your gas and electricity readings directly to your energy supplier, saving you time to focus on other jobs.
A smart meter could also give your businesses additional visibility over energy use and costs to make it easier to identify where changes and savings can be made.
If your firm has 10 employees or less, your business could be eligible. To see whether smart metering can work for your business, contact your energy supplier. To find out more please click here.
