Burger King to deploy fast EV charging stations at 10 NE locations
Burger King will be installing EV charging stations at ten key locations in the Northeast, the company announced Dec. 3.
The fast-food chain partnered with Blink Charging Co. on the project through JSC Management Group, a large Burger King franchisee that manages the locations where the chargers will be deployed. Blink will maintain ownership of the charging locations deployed at the restaurant locations and will begin installing the 26 new Level 2 charging systems in late 2020 and early 2021.
“Our charging equipment and services are ideally suited for deployment in retail, commercial, or workplace settings, and are particularly effective for restaurants, as franchise owners are able to provide their customers fast, level 2 experience with little to no out-of-pocket cost via the Blink-owned business model,” Michael D. Farkas, Founder and CEO of Blink, said in a statement. “With our equipment and ownership flexibility model and Burger King’s expansive presence across the U.S., we believe our installations at JSC’s Northeast properties will be the first of many more to come.”
The systems will be installed primarily at Burger King locations in Rhode Island and New York and each unit features two fast Level 2 AC charging ports with a maximum output of 80 amps. The chargers can be deployed using local load management or each independently on their own circuit.
“JSC Management Group LLC is constantly searching for and implementing solutions and customer amenities to stay ahead of the curve,” James and Sarah Cammilleri, Co-CEO’s of Burger King Franchisee JSC, added. “We are excited to partner with Blink Charging in our new construction sites and current remodeling plans.”
