If you are fortunate enough to run a successful restaurant business you will recognize how energy costs can take a considerable bite out of your profit margins. Utility Bidder work with numerous restaurants of all sizes to help them secure the best deal for their gas, electricity and water usage in their restaurant business.
In July, 2018 the Office of National Statistics published a report which looked at which industries used the most energy. You may not be surprised to learn that hospitality came third on that list. Most restaurants have two energy hot spots – the kitchen(s) where a lot of gas, electricity and water is consumed – and the restaurant itself, where heating and lighting are crucial in creating the right atmosphere for customers.
Research suggests that a commercial kitchen can use ten times the amount of energy compared to other commercial buildings and the catering industry in the UK uses around 20,600 million kWh of energy a year. The really bad news is that small and medium sized restaurants are actually OVERSPENDING by over £90 million a year because of energy inefficiencies.

Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service
I have just worked with Alex from Utility Bidder to sort our electricity contract today. He has got us an excellent price for our charity and it has all been sorted in half an hour (possibly less!). He was extremely helpful. THANK YOU
Had a call from Alex York who within minutes had arranged a new electricity contract with a new supplier. He was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Robert Johnson has just completed my renewal contract with my energy supplier. He was very helpful and very efficient. It’s the first time I have used Utility Bidder and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them. Thank you for making it so easy.
Switch your gas
To switch your restaurant’s gas provider, we advise getting in touch with us a year before your old contract expires. The earlier we secure a new gas provider for your restaurant the better. It will help you to avoid paying out of contract charges and ease the transition from one supplier to another.
Switch your electricity
Electricity charges for your restaurant business continue to increase. It’s really important to have a thorough understanding of your energy consumption – how much are you paying for your unit rate and daily standing charge for example? We will take your former energy bills as a starting point, because even if you are not sure what all the terminology means – we are. Our energy experts will help you find the best contract for your needs. Again, the earlier you start to look at new contracts, the better is will be for your restaurant.
switch your water
Finally, now that the water market has been deregulated your restaurant can buy its water from any of the country’s providers. With around a third of businesses paying over the odds for their water it makes sense that water intensive businesses like restaurants should ensure they are getting the best deal. We will take a look at your billing history over six years to advise you if we think your restaurant has been overcharged or if there are any obvious issues with usage – and then advise you accordingly.
Nobody likes getting the bill – but when you know that bill could be considerably less – it’s even harder to swallow. When you work in an industry with high energy costs it’s important to do all you can to mitigate costs. Let Utility Bidder help your restaurant save by switching energy providers. We guarantee we can save you money when compared to your current provider and better still, we do all the hard work for you.
Most people don’t realize their energy bill is made up of many different elements – and it’s not just based on how much and gas and electricity your restaurant consumes. The bill also includes charges for getting the energy to your restaurant (network costs), charges set by government to cover environmental initiative costs and the fee charged by your supplier to keep things running smoothly and make a profit. Another cost could be the Climate Change Levy (CCL), which is essentially a tax to encourage your restaurant to become more energy efficient. You are exempt from the CCL if your restaurant uses less than 33 kWh of electricity a day or less than 145 KWh of gas per day.
