Low-maintenance Countertops

Popeye’s Restaurants countertops made with Corian® create attractive transaction and beverage counters, as well as serving tray receptacles strong enough for constant use.

ISSUES

  • Selecting a low-maintenance surface that can be easily repaired and has no visible seams
  • Designing attractive transaction and beverage counters, as well as serving tray receptacles strong enough for constant use
  • Creating an environment consistent with the corporate image and true to Popeye’s New Orleans heritage

CHALLENGES

  • Specifying an easy-to-clean, stain-, spill- and impact-resistant surface that is food service code-compliant
  • Choosing a high-performing material that stands up to heavy traffic, minimising repair and maintenance costs
  • Finding an easily fabricated surfacing material that complements the company’s décor

SOLUTIONS

  • DuPont™ Corian® solid surface is installed in areas where food routinely comes into contact with the surface
  • Unlike other surface materials, with Corian®, stubborn stains and minor scratches can be removed with ordinary abrasives and cleansers
  • Available in a wide range of colors, Corian® helps create a signature look that can easily be extended to other franchise locations

BENEFITS

  • Corian® is NSF/ANSI 51 Certified for food contact, making it extremely practical for commercial food service applications
  • Virtually seamless, Corian® allows for hard-use areas to be restored to their original appearance
  • Corian® offers endless design options and coordinates easily with other design materials
