Water Pilot Wins 5 Installations with Large Popeye’s Franchise
New Client Has Over 115 Locations
PHOENIX, AZ, Oct. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: TRNX), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental conservation industry, today announced that its majority owned subsidiary, Water Pilot, LLC (“Water Pilot”) has won a 5 install contract with one of the largest quick service restaurant franchise operators in the US.
The new client has authorized an initial five locations for paid installations of the Water Pilot’s water conversation technology. The client has indicated that if the initial results from these five installs deliver the expected savings in water utility expenses, they anticipate authorizing the install at all 115 locations. If this initial paid install proceeds as expected, the resulting contract for remaining locations would be in excess of $300,000.
“This is a very promising win for the Water Pilot team,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis. “After only a few short months of working together, we have advanced the commercialization of this technology significantly. In May, the Water Pilot was doing unpaid pilot installs to generate interest. Today, we are now charging full rates for installs based on our strong track record of saving clients upwards of twenty to even thirty percent in some cases on their water utility bills. We are also able to help conserve significant unnecessary fresh water consumption for these clients.”
“Today, we are gaining real financial momentum. We are starting to generate revenues in the tens of thousands of dollars per month, and this is quickly turning the Water Pilot into a profitable business. We are deliberately targeting large scale operators in the hospitality, restaurant, healthcare and high density living markets.”
“Most of these prospective clients operate at least 100 locations each. With a price point of about $2000 for our smaller valves, and over $25,000 for our largest models, we are focused on clients that can deliver several hundred thousand dollars each to our revenue mix in 2020. We believe Water Pilot has the potential to quickly scale into a highly profitable, multimillion dollar operation in 2020,” concluded Mr. Mahoney.
