Jimbo’s knows Energy efficiency is the right thing to do!
The first Jimbo’s grocery store opened in 1984 out of the desire to provide the community with high-quality natural and organic foods. Since then, Jimbo’s has expanded to four locations throughout San Diego. Jimbo’s ethos can be summarized by one simple statement, “…because it’s the right thing to do!” This philosophy extends from customers to employees to how they manage and operate their stores.
Operating with integrity
Doing the right thing is integrated throughout Jimbo’s operations and being socially and environmentally responsible is as important as being an economically viable company. As Facilities Manager for Jimbo’s, Andy Ryan contributes tremendously to this by ensuring all Jimbo’s facilities and equipment operate efficiently. He is always looking for ways to optimize operations so when Jimbo’s Sustainability Coordinator, Stephanie Morris, brought the Comprehensive Energy Management Solutions (CEMS) program to his attention, he was interested in the offerings.
Jimbo’s already operated efficiently but a desire to be proactive prompted him to participate. Andy connected with the program and decided to pursue two rebate opportunities, hand wrapping machines and auto door closers for the Carlsbad location.
