Beyond the Sticker Price: Life Cycle Costing Webinar When: Friday, October 2nd at 1pm CST
Summary: Food service equipment can be very expensive but, the purchase price is usually just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the true cost to own and operate appliances. Understanding the lifecycle cost of a piece of equipment is the only way to make a truly informed and financially wise purchasing decision. Fortunately, there are some very powerful, free, online tools that can be used to estimate the real cost of ownership for foodservice equipment.
Presenter: Richard Young
Richard is the senior engineer and director of education at the Food Service Technology Center (FSTC), a publicly funded research facility that studies and promotes energy and water efficiency in commercial food service. Trained as an electrical engineer, Richard started his career in alternative energy, changing from energy-generation to energy-efficiency when he joined the FSTC research team over two decades ago. Richard developed several of the Center’s standard test methods before expanding into green building design as project manager for The Energy Efficient McDonald's (TEEM). Richard focuses much of his efforts on technical outreach - translating the research into practical.
