After our TI tour on Tuesday, I enjoyed visiting Frito Lay, in Plano TX. George Guck the Director of Facility Operations was kind enough to meet with us so late in the day. George has The building being 25 years old became LEED gold certified in 2009, which in my opinion is a major accomplishment considering it was such an old building. Their primary goal at the facility is to try their best to keep the cost of chips low! They do this by using solar power, recycling heat, and light harvesting. Which according to their energy bills are definitely helping the company save money. I really liked how he talked about the Culinary Lab and how efficient they are in their use of energy. I found the automatic doors going into the restroom to be interesting.
I think they are doing a good job of keeping the employees happy, by offering extended cafeteria hours. I like how they are constantly looking at ways to improve their system. I would really like to work at this facility.
