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.

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.

Custom Surfaces for Brixx Restaurant

Custom Surfaces for Brixx Restaurant

The new Brixx Wood Fired Pizza in Hoover, Alabama, features Solid Surface and Quartz surfaces fabricated by Surface One.

Surface One recently installed the surfaces for the new Brixx Wood Fired Pizza located at Patton Creek in Hoover, Alabama. Brixx Wood Fired Pizza uses fresh ingredients to make pizza dough, meatballs, hummus and other featured items from scratch everyday.  It is a family friendly restaurant that serves high quality sandwiches, salads and gourmet pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven.

Brixx-Radius-Top-Surface-OneThere are several different custom fabricated surfaces showcased within the restaurant, including Zodiaq Quartz and Corian Solid Surface, both manufactured by DuPont.  The long curved bar top is custom fabricated Zodiaq Quartz in the color Savory.  Savory is a mixture of translucent stones within a mocha base. This extraordinary rich color with three-dimensional flecks coordinates beautifully with the Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz featured on the round serving area on the bar.  Saddle Brown is a contemporary color that is luxurious and rich in tone.  The Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz is also featured on some of the tables in the bar area.

Brixx-Corian-Tables-Surface-OneQuartz surfaces deliver strength and are heat and scratch resistant. It is an excellent surface material for food service and high traffic areas because it is stain resistant and bacteria resistant. Add to that the timeless beauty of quartz crystal and this material is an obvious selection for businesses as well as residences. The sparkling crystal within the Zodiaq surfaces are visually striking and utterly unique.

The custom fabricated tabletops in the dining area feature DuPont’s Corian in Rafia. The warm, yellow-based neutral color is reminiscent of straw with randomly spaced translucent particles. This rich color complements the other surfaces and the contemporary restaurant decor. Corian solid surfaces deliver high performance that is necessary in a restaurant environment, and incorporate outstanding aesthetics.

Brixx-Mitered-Edge-Surface-OneThe Surface One team is highly experienced in custom fabrication techniques for high quality design needs. The surfaces in the Brixx restaurant feature complex radiuses and circular tops.  The surfaces also feature an even more complex laminated edge that ranges from 3” to  6” thick.  Custom fabrication techniques were also used on a half wall within the restaurant that is clad in Quartz.  These sections were mitered together to create a seamless appearance that adds to the design impact.

“Your client did a great job and we are very pleased with their professionalism. This was not a standard job and they did exceptional work. Not just anyone could have accomplished this level of craftsmanship. The countertops really help make the décor hit the high mark we have set for ourselves in this new concept. One would need to actually see it to believe it.”
