Quartz Countertops For Commercial Food Service

Countertops for restaurants, bars, cafes, and clubs need to look fabulous and hold up to heavy usage. Durability, cleaning and maintenance are an important part of deciding what materials are best to use for commercial food preparation and serving areas.

Quartz countertops are a very popular choice for restaurant kitchens and serving areas. Quartz countertops are a non-porous material that is stain resistant and bacteria resistant so it is a great option for restaurants. Quartz is also impact and scratch resistant making it an excellent choice for high-use public areas.

Quartz is a man-made material that is available from several manufacturers, such as Silestone, Zodiaq, Cambria and Caesarstone, with styles that vary in color and design. Quartz countertops are available in a rainbow of colors from subtle to bold. Quartz countertops are often solid but can also be veined to look like Marble and other natural stone. Here are a few examples of Quartz countertops that Surface One installed in restaurants and commercial food service areas.

Cambria Quartz Countertops in University Cafeteria

In this project, Surface One fabricated and installed Cambria Hollinsbrook Quartz Countertops in the Samford University Cafeteria located in Homewood, Alabama. This is the main dining area for the Samford University students, fondly referred to as ‘The Caf’. Cambria Quartz surfaces are durable and bacteria resistant, making them ideal for food service areas. Each Quartz slab was custom fabricated to fit the commercial restaurant equipment specifications, including specialty sinks, hot and cold buffet units, steam tables, custom cooktops and food preparation stations. The final product is eye catching, durable and easy to maintain.

Zodiaq Quartz in University Baseball Stadium Club

Surface One was pleased to have participated renovation of the Sewell-Thomas Stadium at the University of Alabama. The “Joe” is a state-of-the-art baseball facility with several new upscale club and dining options. For this renovation, the University of Alabama chose Cloud White Zodiaq Quartz countertops for the .525 Club and Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz Countertops for the Home Plate Club. The finished product is a modern design that is easy to clean and highly durable.

Zodiaq Quartz in Pizza Restaurant

The Brixx Pizza restaurant at Patton Creek in Hoover, Alabama contracted Surface One to outfit their bartop and bar-area tables with Zodiaq Quartz. A light colored Savory Zodiaq Quartz is featured on the long curved bartop while a darker Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz was used for the round serving area at the bar and most of the tables in the bar.

The contrasting Quartz colors on the curved bartop and round serving area are a focal point in this modern bar and restaurant. The bacteria resistant Quartz countertops maintain a high-end appearance with little maintenance and long-term durability.

Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Reception Desk

The reception area is the first thing a customer sees when they enter your business. Why not go all-in to create a big first impression? For this project, our client wanted to add a custom designed reception desk that would stand out in a large open entry space. The project designer, James Krygel, chose to wrap the rectangular sections of the reception desk in Greystone Marble to create a unique design focused around the angular graining of the Marble. 

Slabsmith Technology

Once the Greystone Mable slab was selected, Surface One worked with the designer to visual wrap the stone around the desk using our Slabsmith virtual imaging software. The designer on the project wanted the mirrored veining in the Marble slab to line up from the upper top all the way down the face of the reception desk to create a diamond pattern. With the Slabsmith software, we were able to visually show the client and designer exactly how the Marble would look wrapped around the desk. Our software shows all the cuts, seams and edges so you can see the final product before we make the first cut.

Mitered Lamination

Mitered lamination is the process of gluing pieces of stone together to create a mitered edge profile. For this project, the pieces of Marble were expertly cut to create a seamless edge between the top of the desk and the front and side panels of the desk. The mitered seams allow the pattern to “wrap” from the horizontal surface to the vertical surface. Surface One has extensive experience with mitering edges for commercial and residential projects. To learn more read our article “What is a Mitered Edge Profile?”

Cambria Quartz – Guest Services Desks

Custom guest services desks in the newly remodeled Montgomery Wind Creek Casino were fabricated by Surface One using Cambria Quartz. The mitered edges of the quartz countertops create a clean almost seamless design that extends down the sides of each desk to the floor. The deep black pattern of the Edinburough Cambria Quartz complements the vibrant metallic tile that it frames. Cambria Quartz is a popular choice for commercial environments because it is a strong, non-porous material that is resistant to stains and does not need to be sealed.

The “Joe”

Surface One is excited to have been a part of the birth of the new “Joe”.  The newly renovated Sewell-Thomas Stadium is a state-of-the-art baseball facility that seats 5,500 with several new upscale club and dining options. Surface One installed Zodiaq Quartz countertops and bar tops in the .525 Club and the Home Plate Club.

The University of Alabama baseball stadium was originally constructed in 1948 as the Thomas Field. It was named in honor of Frank Thomas, a former Crimson Tide head football coach. In 1978 the University of Alabama baseball stadium was renamed Sewell-Thomas Stadium to recognize former Alabama baseball player and head baseball coach Joe Sewell. Joe Sewell had just been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. Over time, the stadium has been through many renovations and is fondly referred to as the “Joe”.

The .525 Club

The .525 Club is a new upscale seating and hospitality area on the first base side of the field. Seating is covered. The hospitality area is climate controlled with a view of the field and includes flat screen televisions throughout the club.

The .525 Club features a long Zodiaq Quartz countertop in the bar and beverage area. Surface One fabricated Zodiaq Quartz laminated edges to create a seamless transition between the bar top and the counter top. Surface One also fabricated and installed Zodiac Quartz drink rails along the walls facing the field.

The quartz countertops in the .525 Club are all Zodiaq Cloud White and feature a smooth 2cm full bullnose edge.

The Home Plate Club

The Home Plate Club is a plush club area located behind home plate underneath the seating bowl. The sports bar atmosphere features bar and table seating with flat screen televisions through out the club.

Surface One fabricated and installed Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz countertops in the kitchen and bar area of the Home Plate Club. The focal point of the Home Plate Club is a long seated bar with Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz. The bar is framed by large columns coated in brilliant crimson red mosaic tile. The food preparation and serving area behind the seated bar also feature Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz backed by crimson red mosiac tile wall accents.

Zodiaq Quartz

Dupont Zodiaq Quartz countertops are nonporous, durable and easy to clean. The Zodiaq surface is scratch-resistant, heat-resistant and tough enough to withstand the bumps and spills that are common in food service areas. Zodiaq Quartz is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Certified® for children and schools.

Zodiaq Quartz is an excellent choice for serving counters, bar tops, food preparation areas and other public venues. Zodiaq Quartz is available in  a range of beautiful colors without the need for sealing or polishing.

What is Silestone Quartz?

Silestone is a brand of Quartz countertops that are manufactured by Cosentino.  Quartz surfaces are a man-made product that is engineered using real quartz crystals blended with a small amount of polymer resins.  This engineering process creates a beautiful surface that is often lower-maintenance than other comparable natural stone surfaces.

Bacteriostatic Anti-Bacterial Technology

Silestone Quartz is made with a revolutionary anti-bacterial protection called Bacteriostatic Protection, created by Cosentino. The innovative bacteria resistant technology has led to an entirely new category of countertops known as bacteriostatic countertops. The Silestone formula is based on silver ions and prevents the propagation of bacteria making it the perfect choice for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

Durable and Scratch Resistant

Silestone quartz is resistant to scratches, easy to clean and durable. Non-porous and highly resistant to stains such as coffee, tea, wine, lemon juice and other potential kitchen spills make this a beautiful, as well as highly functional, answer to your new kitchen. One of the hardest materials in the world, silestone has polyester resin elasticity and is formed using a vibrocompression system during production.

Greenguard Certified

Silestone is an earth-friendly product that has received the Greenguard certificate proving that Silestone does not emit substances that are harmful to the environment and can be used safely in enclosed areas. Silestone has also been awarded the “Greenguard Children & Schools Certificate”, for safe us in schools and universities.
