Amish-Made Restaurant Booths Debut
IN THE NEWS…
East Coast Chair & Barstool, Inc., the national e-commerce restaurant furniture retailer, announces the addition of a new product line as they launch restaurant booth production at their headquarters in Grove City, Pa. The company has hired on authentic Amish craftsmen to join their staff and hand-craft the restaurant booths, which will both be available in-stock and as custom made-to-order purchases for their customers, who are mostly independent bar and restaurant owners. This new line of restaurant booths complements the company’s existing lines of restaurant and resort furniture.
“Our quick ship restaurant booths are standard sizes and come upholstered in either black or wine vinyl,” explains owner Dave DiSanti. “Customers can choose to customize their seating options with wood trim, different upholstery colors, or custom-fit sizes for a little bit of a longer lead time. We have plans to add more options and other features as we learn what our customers want.”
Currently, the quick ship models are shipping in just 1-2 days. Featuring a commercial grade, 22-ounce vinyl, the booths are designed with strength in mind and come with a 10-year structural warranty plus 1-year upholstery warranty. Built with a solid wood construction, heavy duty springs, and welt seams, the booths have foam cushioning which is approved by California Fire Code 117. Restaurant booths are currently selling for as low as $175 for singles and $275 for doubles.
“We never jeopardize quality when we find ways to offer our products for less,” DiSanti says. “We believe that America’s bar and restaurant owners should have restaurant furniture that looks great, lasts a long time, and is affordable. I believe in the craftsmanship that our Amish employees bring to the production of these restaurant booths, and I know how lucky we are to be able to find such talent in our honest, hard-working staff.”
East Coast Chair & Barstool recently added booth seating to their three branded e-commerce Web sites and their eBay store.
“A lot of our customers were looking for restaurant booths, and we wanted to be able to meet those needs,” DiSanti says. “When I looked at the other manufacturers’ products, I knew I could make the booths better and sell them for less. That’s what our customers deserve.”
