Educational Touchsreens Aid 'Green' McDonald's in Spreading Its Eco-Friendly Philosophy

The third green McDonald's restaurant in the U.S. opened July 14th in Cary, North Carolina, and is using Quality Automation Graphics' Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard (EEED) to educate the public on the restaurant's economic and environmental benefits. This McDonald's is owned and operated by Ric Richards of Richards Advantage, Inc., a 20-year-old McDonald's franchise organization with multiple restaurants in North Carolina.

The Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard was unveiled at the restaurant's grand opening, July 14, and is displayed in the lobby as a green education tool to show the public more about the restaurant's green features. An EEED is a graphical user interface (GUI) that can display non-live data or live data, such as a building's resource use. A combination of photo-realistic graphics and non-live data is used on this dashboard.
