Restaurant Industry

The restaurant industry is very important to the U.S. Economy. According to the 2012 Restaurant Industry Forecast, “There are 970,000 restaurant or food service locations in the United States – everything from large chains to mom-and-pop operations, and they project that sales this year will be about $632 billion, a 3.5 percent increase over last year’s sales.” The restaurant industry generates employment for millions and supports the local community.

Restaurant is a place where local residents and travelers come to relax and have fun. To ensure that the fun continues uninterrupted, backup power is required during power outage. This is not only for customers but also for the continuous operation of kitchen equipments, refrigeration/chillers equipments, beverage systems, washing/drying machines, lighting, air conditioning and heating, wastewater treatment system, computers and cash registers – where power is needed 24/7. Food safety is determined It is important in this industry to protect refrigerated and frozen food.

In fact many states mandate restaurants to have a power backup plan for food safety, customer safety and other emergency planning. For ex In NJ, The Department of Health Food and Drug Safety program has compliance protocols for restaurants which include having an onsite back power system. Here is the link.


For restaurant owners an onsite power generator is an investment that helps protect business in numerous ways. A backup power generator could pay for itself during the first outage that generally lasts more than eight or twelve hours-yet the system will provide protection time and again for a very long period of time.

We offer different types of generators – natural gas generators which are clean, quiet and very affordable, making them ideal for restaurants. At WPP, we also have the fully enclosed and sound attenuated models which are engineered to run as quietly as possible, making them well-suited for businesses where sound may be a factor, such as restaurants or hotels.
