Longhorn Steakhouse

Delivering Guest Comfort and Energy Savings




Darden Restaurants, the largest fine dining restaurant group in the world with over 1,500 locations, was looking for a partner that could solve their comfort issues for their Longhorn Steakhouse Brand. Simultaneously, they sought a company that would help them meet their long-term energy efficiency goals. They ordered pilots for two Illinois locations, Orland Park and Bolingbrook, which received constant guest feedback regarding temperature related comfort issues. These comfort issues were primarily driven by two factors. First, their current programmable thermostats were unable to solve the temperature imbalances created by varying heat loads in their dining area. Second, their existing system required too much human intervention. They were looking for a simpler and systematic approach that could respond to the complex needs of their buildings.
