LSI Industries Wins Award As Top-10 Supplier to Wendy's Restaurants

Quality Supply Chain Co-op, Inc.SM (QSCC), the independent purchasing cooperative for restaurants owned by The Wendy's Company® and its franchisees, recently honored LSI Industries as one of its top 10 suppliers and distributors.

The Golden Link Award for Supply Chain Excellence is QSCC's highest honor for its supplier and distributor partners.  Winners were chosen from more than 430 companies in three categories: food beverages, building materials equipment, and distribution.

"LSI Industries has supplied lighting products to the Wendy's system since 1991, and they completed LED exterior lighting conversions for more than 430 Wendy's restaurants," said QSCC President John Inwright.  "Each year, the new LED lighting reduces energy costs by more than $550,000 and reduces electricity use by more than 6 million kWh – which is enough to power about 500 average-sized U.S. homes for a year."

"LSI Industries consistently demonstrates outstanding dedication, innovation, commitment, and service to QSCC and the Wendy's system," Inwright added.  "Partners who win the Golden Link Award are truly in a class above the rest, and they always look for new ways to reduce costs and increase value for our members."
