As a way to share energy best practices across the McDonald’s System, McDonald’s USA recognizes Energy All-Stars – restaurant managers, company employees and owner/operators – whose focus on proper maintenance, education and energy conservation provide leading examples for other restaurant managers to follow.
Since 2005, Energy All-Stars have been nominated by their owner/operators or McDonald’s company-operated restaurant supervisors or representatives based on their use of restaurant energy tools and applications. In addition to having their profiles and practices shared throughout the company, top restaurant managers in each of the three major U.S. divisions receive a $500 award for their performance.
The Energy All-Stars program is just one reason that McDonald’s USA was named an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in 2007 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Through sharing best practices, restaurant managers are able to improve the efficiency of their restaurants and reduce their environmental impact.
