What's Happening at Our Company
October 2013 - Washington Nationals
The country's baseball team has made a substantial purchase for their club and VIP area. The outdoor patio furniture was consists of synthetic wood furniture, all commercial grade. How cool is that?
September 2013 - Cesar Millan
This month our super customer is Cesar Millan, who purchased some barstools from us for his home. While we are not sure if this is the actual Dog Whisperer himself, we know that he is from LA. If its true, we hope you come to our office and train our puppy not to bark at everyone who walks by the door. Hopefully there is no more than one Cesar Millan in LA!
August 2013 - Fogo De Chau
This month we were fortunate to work on two Fogo store openings - first being San Jose and second was Rosemont. Unfortunately, none were in Atlanta, and we did not get the chance to sit on our chairs. But a few carnivores among us did relish in the fact that we had the opportunity to work on a restaurant where we had a strong emotional (and digestive) connection. The customer was quite pleased with our service (we rushed this one out in record time) because shortly thereafter the first store came an order for the second one. The customer ordered the ladder back restaurant chair, which is made of genuine european beech wood (we don't sell low quality materials) and comes with a great 2 year warranty. We want to thank our customers and hope our OUTSTANDING customer service, and product knowledge will keep bringing more cool projects.
July 2013 - Mellow Mushroom
This month we did a rush order for a Mellow Mushroom in Alabama. This customer called in with a 3 week deadline, and we were able to rush an order out of 15 booths in the V-channel style, with an upgraded Olympus vinyl for durability. For tables, they went with a T-mold table with Formica pattern Red Ellipse 1913 and Gray Ellipse 6614-58. We got it done!
June 2013 - Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats
We are happy to announce Dogfish Head as one of our customers. This is a big step for us because the guys at AHH enjoy drinking beer and there's really no beer like Dogfish craft beer. If you haven't heard of them, they are available at almost any supermarket such as Wholefoods or convenience store these days. We've done some microbreweries before but this is a big step up for us. The staff is hoping that if they do a good job, then we will get free beers. Dogfish has ordered large quantity of solid ash table tops, which we custom make in our warehouse. The raw material are sourced locally from the Appalachian region, and we finish it with commercial grade lacquer. These are made in USA, 100%, we are the only guys who can guarantee the authenticity.
May 2013 - AJC & Kroger
Atlanta Journal Constitution is the main newspaper serving the metro Atlanta area, with a history stretching back to 1880. Kroger is a large supermarket chain with locations throughout the eastern US. AJC and Kroger came to AHH for a custom project: custom logo tops with pre dilled holes for installation in their new stores c/o Starbucks. We created a custom resin table top, pre-drilled with custom holes. Best of all, this was made in USA, with a thick layer of epoxy resin - that same material you found on bar tops. The result:

American Hospitality Furniture Debuts on Food Network's Restaurant Impossible
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
On September 28th American Hospitality Furniture’s restaurant furniture was featured on the latest episode of Restaurant Impossible, which airs on the Food Network. The episode went through the amazing transformation of Port Charlotte, Florida restaurant Cap'n and the Cowboy. Chef Robert Irvine and Designer Krista Watterworth went through and revamped the restaurant by training the staff, reworking the menu, and renovating the décor. The episode focused greatly on Robert’s constructive criticism of the business and staff and also focused on the drastic renovations made to the restaurant.
The restaurant’s renovation process began by clearing out the restaurant and removing all the outdated restaurant furniture and décor. Even the carpet was removed and hardwood floor was put down to make the restaurant feel more modern. Chef Robert also noticed that half the restaurant booths were significantly worn and had tears in the cushions. This led to one of the highlights of the show: Chef Robert and Krista’s decision to remove the booths and add American Hospitality Furniture’s black metal ladder back restaurant chairs in their place. The addition of the restaurant chairs served to open up the restaurant and create a more inviting atmosphere. Getting rid of the worn out booths showed the customers that the restaurant paid attention to quality and detail, which showed up in the restaurant’s new menu items.
Initially, Krista was overwhelmed by the constraints of the show which are a budget of $10,000 and less than two days to complete the renovation. In fact, halfway through, Chef Robert came to check on the renovations and both were worried about the state of the renovations and expressed concerns how they had never been so behind before. In the end, everyone stepped up and the restaurant held its grand opening to a full house. American Hospitality Furniture worked with Krista to get her the metal restaurant chairs within her chair budget and she was very satisfied with the results.
Owner Nick Scaringella and general manager Tamar LiCalzi were amazed during the reveal of the restaurant’s renovation. The restaurant has been successfully operating since the show and four months later then restaurant has recorded its first profitable month. Over 3000 customers have eaten at the restaurant since the re-opening and the reviews are highly positive. Customers have credited the décor, the new bar, and the new menu, as reasons why they return to the restaurant.
The show will air again at the following times:

American Hospitality Furniture on Food Network
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 30, 2011
American Hospitality Furniture’s restaurant furniture will be featured on an episode of Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible show. The episode airs nationally on October 26th and will feature Chef Robert Irvine and his team’s challenge of turning around failing restaurants all across America. The premise for each show is that Chef Robert and his team travels to a struggling restaurant and rescues it within two days and a budget of only $10,000. On the first day, Chef Robert observes how the restaurant and its staff operate, and then he helps the staff to correct their mistakes while updating the menu. On the second day, the design team updates the look and atmosphere of the restaurant while Chef Robert takes his marketing to the streets and tells the community about the project. The final scenes show the grand opening of the restaurant and a closing statement by Chef Robert himself.
The head designer for the design team of the October 26th episode, Krista Watterworth, contacted American Hospitality Furniture about purchasing furniture for the show after viewing the company’s website, AmericanHospitalityFurniture.com. The company was able to quickly turn around the required quantity of furniture in time for the grand opening. American Hospitality’s PR team was present during the live filming of the opening, along with local business persons and politicians. The meal from the restaurant’s updated menu was delicious and the redesigned restaurant looked absolutely fantastic.
Krista and her design team deserved high marks for the amazing renovations they provided the restaurant. The before and after pictures of the restaurant seating, the restaurant tables, the bar, the walls, and the flooring can be found on the company’s website. American Hospitality Furniture continues to provide quality, affordability, and great customer service, and, with Restaurant Impossible, has cooked up a recipe for success in the restaurant furniture industry.

AmericanHospitalityFurniture.com Announces Quick Ship Restaurant Booths
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 17, 2011
AmericanHospitalityFurniture.com announced their new line of quick ship restaurant booths to provide a solution to the increasing customer requests for quickly shipped orders of quality restaurant booths. The company had been contemplating how to support a variety of common challenges that potential customers were calling in with: aggressive restaurant opening schedules, damaged shipments that needed to be replaced quickly, and restaurant renovations that needed to be completed as quickly as possible to reduce downtime. The company’s marketing analysis showed that there was a significant demand for quick ship restaurant furniture and acted upon the opportunity.
Through thoughtful coordination within the company’s unique network of national distribution centers, AmericanHospitalityFurniture.com laid out a plan to deliver their quick ship restaurant booths in as soon as five business days nationwide (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). When compared to the four to six week standard production time of restaurant booths, the five business day delivery time of the quick ship line can be a real lifesaver to designers and entrepreneurs in the restaurant industry.
The current quick ship selection consists of single and double booths in black or burgundy vinyl upholstering. All quick ship booths are of the same high-quality that the American Hospitality Furniture brand has become known for and each booth has a 3” foam cushion for added comfort instead of the industry standard 1.5” cushion. All quick ship booths also carry the same manufacturer’s warranties and competitive pricing that the company is known for. The company plans to expand their quick ship selection to wood restaurant booths and designer booths in the next year to provide more solutions for their valued customers.
AmericanHospitalityFurniture.com remains committed to their core values of providing customers with great service and listening to what their customers need. The company feels these values create a mutually beneficial relationship in which they can use their customer feedback to provide innovative solutions.

Smoking Regulation Changes Shifts Focus of Commercial Furniture Manufacturing Company
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
Americanhospitalityfurniture.com announced recently wholesale pricing for new outdoor restaurant furniture. The company attributes their change in focus to the stricter enforcement of regulatory changes in states, such as Florida, which are prohibiting indoor smoking at restaurants and workplaces. This has led to an increase in demand for outdoor patio seating space.
Americanhospitalityfurniture.com, which is based in Atlanta, also attributes this increase in demand to the change in weather, as longer and warmer summers have led to increased demand for frozen treats such as ice cream and frozen yogurt. Management believes that this trend is expected to continue as new and existing restaurants remodel and expand.
Management explained, "As the manufacturing industry faces increased pressure from the cost of raw materials to the price of fuel, we are continuously searching for new opportunities to expand into additional markets. We expect high growth in the outdoor market for the foreseeable future."
American Home & Hospitality LLC is the owner and operator of Americanhospitality furniture.com. They are a wholesaler of the all aluminum chair, the black wicker chair, the honey wicker chair, and the teak restaurant chair. American Home & Hospitality is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and serves the Southeast region as well as national corporate accounts.
