In today’s marketplace, running an environmentally friendly food-service business isn’t just good for the planet; it is good for your pocketbook as well. Studies show that 75 percent of all Americans consider themselves to be environmentalists, and an increasing number of consumers are not only willing to pay more for products and services from an eco-friendly business but are actively seeking out companies who vocally support the environment. Close to 3 out of every 4 American consumers refuse to make a purchase when they are aware that the product may have a negative effect on the environment.
