products at a reasonable price, whether locally or from a long distance, this could not only aid them in having fresh products at a low cost, it would also allow them the ability to work as a team efficiently and setting a sustainability standard for the rest of the community. The
6 2-2 Case Study – Yourway Subs business should also find a local bakery to make their bread. It would save them space and money as well as help the local economy. The packaging should be made from 100% recycled materials and no plastic should be used at all. They could take it a step further and follow suit with Quiznos and have their team members wear uniforms made from recycled plastic bottles [Mar10]. Implementation The Green Team will implement this project. They will take data from each store and compare it during a 16 week period. Once the allotted time is over, they will choose the best outcome from each initiative and formulate a plan to implement at each store throughout the company. Evaluation To know that the Pilot Project is working, audits need to be done at each restaurant on a monthly basis. After each billing cycle, each restaurant needs to determine how much money, energy and the amount of waste they are producing. If something is not working the way it was mapped out, it needs to be reevaluated and tweaked to fix it. In order for the project to be deemed successful, each restaurant needs to meet the goals set out by the Green Team. References Automotive Fleet. (2015, May 11).
