In 2015, RMH Franchise partnered with Ameresco for invoice processing and utility data management. Today, Ameresco provides services to 160+ Applebee restaurants. Together, our efforts have produced measurable year-over-year savings and cost avoidance results across RMH Franchise’s national energy footprint.
“Our partnership with Ameresco came at a crucial time for RMH. We originally utilized the invoice processing module to help assist us with not only getting our invoices paid on time, but with their thorough audit process, paid with confidence. Our partnership then grew into utility procurement services. Their subject matter experts quickly identified areas of opportunity within our markets to help reduce energy costs. We value our partnership with Ameresco and have realized monumental savings from their services.”
