YUM! Brands®, the holder of such well-known names as KFC®, Pepsi® and Taco Bell®, recently commissioned and received a quantity of custom-fabricated enormous dining tables for their newly renovated corporate center dining halls. Each table was a whopping 5ft wide by 14ft long, with tops shipping as a single piece. Custom wood X-braced table bases provided sturdy support.
Like several similar projects for food-industry companies, the designers were specifically interested in CafeCountertops’ Euro-Star construction because the random stave patterns are reminiscent of a well-built chopping block or carving board. Plank-style lumber just wouldn’t have delivered the same feeling. In a neat homage to another local legend, the designers chose Light Ash wood, which has been a mainstay for Louisville Slugger®, the famous baseball bat manufacturer, for over 100 years. Many thanks to everyone who was involved in helping us successfully complete this marquee project.
