Everyone is welcome at Andrea Lawrence’s restaurant, although there are a few regulars she’d rather not see: rain, snow, grime, and gravel. For years, she rented generic floor mats for the entrance of her Boston Pizza, but they didn’t seem to do much. “They were just… a black thing on the floor,” she recalls. “When it was snowing outside, the entrance was soaking wet.”
When a trusted friend recommended Canada Mat last summer, she saw an opportunity. Investing in high-quality mats for her entrance would make a noticeable improvement in the first and last thing her guests saw. Andrea was intrigued, but she had some reservations. Operating costs were on the rise — “If we were going to make an investment, it had to be something that looked good. Our expectations were pretty high.”
With the road salt, gravel, and snow only a few months away, Andrea decided to put Canada Mat to the test. She installed floor mats from the front door to the host desk and the results were unmistakable. Canada Mat’s sturdy, highly absorbent materials are keeping the snow, water, and muck off of her floors and out of her restaurant. The weather is constantly changing, but no matter what it’s like outside, her entrance is always safe, clean, and dry.
Not only was it a worthwhile investment, but Andrea stands to save a lot of money on rental fees. Within 2.5 years, her Canada Mat products will be paying for themselves. Now that she’s found the solution for her entrance, Andrea is looking at non-slip mats for her kitchen. Ready when you are, Andrea!
