Client Spotlight: DiBella's Subs

By 5 on June 24, 2020

DiBella’s Subs started over a century ago as a little corner grocery store in Rochester, NY. The business evolved into an Italian import store and delicatessen and eventually decided to focus on perfecting the time-honored baking techniques that would produce the classic sandwich roll for which they are famous. Today, that small, family-run business has 44 stores in five states, and is known for its quality, exceptional service, and fresh baked bread. In fact, DiBella’s mantra is, “It’s all about the bread.” They believe that every time they build a sandwich, they build a relationship. This has created a dedicated customer base, where first-time visitors are changed into life-long fans.

The Opportunity

Prior to partnering with 5, the Irving Convention Center (ICC) had procured energy by issuing RFPs directly to suppliers. While this process met their basic needs, the ICC lacked the time and tools to track and analyze market conditions or conduct usage analyses that would allow the facility to capitalize on periodic market fluctuations. As a result, the ICC had little opportunity to reduce baseline energy costs or pursue operational efficiencies. Additionally, the ICC had initiated a new lighting project but lacked the funding to complete it.
