First LEED-Certified Subway Opens in Kissimmee
As part of a company-wide initiative backed by SUBWAY’s corporate offices to become more eco-friendly, the SUBWAY eco-store utilizes sustainable processes that yield energy savings of about 20 percent. Elements of the eco-store include high efficiency HVAC systems, remote condensing units for refrigeration and ice making equipment, day lighting and controls for high efficiency lighting, LED interior and exterior signs, low flow water fixtures, and building and décor materials from sustainable sources. There was also extensive use of recycled products and furnishings in the construction of the restaurant.
The reception, which is open to the public, will provide an opportunity for the local community to get an inside look at the innovation and ingenuity that went into making the Calypso Commons SUBWAY an eco-friendly dining experience.
