Sticking With Your New Year’s Resolution

Every year begins with a new goal in mind. Many people hope to lose weight, quit smoking, or kick some other old habit. But, a company is no different in the sense that they can set goals for new year’s which they want to accomplish.

Setting a New Year’s resolution for a company is a bit different from an individual goal.  Everyone has to be on board with the same goal in mind and everyone needs to be a team player to accomplish that goal in a timely manner.

The biggest mistake many people make when setting a New Year’s resolution, for  a company or otherwise, is not setting a specific time period in which that goal needs to be accomplished. As the year goes on many people forget what their goal even was to begin with or find it not as important as it was at the beginning of the New Year.

So for one thing as a company you need to be realistic when setting your resolution. Ask yourself basic questions: What can we get done? When can this be done by? Who will we need for this to get done? How will it get done? After assessing your answers you can set your goal.

Also, make sure to communicate with all others who are needed to make this happen. If everyone is not aware of what the goal is and how to reach that goal how will it get done? Plus, the more people you spread the word to the more likely you are to stick with that goal.

Start setting your New Year’s Resolutions and stick with it!

Plywood Vs. Solid wood




Plywood, if not familiar with it already, is a type of manufactured wood made from thin sheets of wood or plies. The layers are glued together so that adjacent plies have their wood grain at right angles to each other to create one solid piece.

Plywood is easy to use in terms of construction, you can simply cut a rectangle of plywood. Plywood may disintegrate if it comes in contact with water, which in a restaurant is bound to happen. Engineered wood, which is what plywood is considered to be, can be made from waste material like sawdust and chips, but solid wood requires large sections of wood that are free from defects.

Solid wood is composed of wood with no particle board or wood fiber. It’s the resulting board milled from the tree. While solid wood is more expensive, it is at a higher cost due to the durability and quality of the wood. It takes a bit more time to use for construction because it has to be shaped to form the end product.

 Many people consider solid wood to be more aesthetically pleasing as well. Especially when considering booths, if an end piece is showing and it is made of plywood it would reveal the glued pieces of ply. If a booth is built of solid wood you would not have this problem.

So while plywood may be cheaper and easier to construct, it is no match for solid wood furniture when considering quality.

That is why Carolina Custom Booth chooses Solid Wood.

Born for Furniture

Our company, Carolina Custom Booth, is located in High Point North Carolina. We are part of the “Furniture Capital of the World”. High Point is a city located in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina — the 36th largest metro area in the United States with a population of 1.5 million. High Point is known for its furniture, textiles, and bus manufacturing. It is sometimes referred to as “North Carolina’s International City” because of the bi-annual Furniture Market which draws in about 100,000 exhibitors and buyers from around the world.

High Point is also ranked #1 on the list of “Top 101 cities with largest percentage of males and females working in industry: Furniture and home furnishings and household appliance stores (population 50,000+)”. Many of those who live in High Point have been in the furniture industry for their entire life, or at least an extended period of time. That’s why we have a wonderful staff that is knowledgeable about manufacturing furniture. They are also able to execute the manufacturing process well. Born and raised for furniture!

We like to participate in being the leading city for the furniture industry. We treat our booths as a piece of furniture, not like a wooden box. You can consider our booth just as good as a sofa. We use a special construction design which allows us to use hard wood rather than ply wood. Plywood is a wood product made out of many sheets of veneer, or plies, pressed together and glued with their grains going in opposite directions. This is generally not as aesthetically pleasing as solid wood. Other manufacturers choose to use plywood because of cost; it tends to be available at a lower cost.  But we choose to use hard wood because it makes for a better looking, longer lasting, and more durable end product.

Put a Spin on Restaurant Furniture For The Holidays

Get into the holiday spirit and decorate your restaurant furniture to suite every ocassion. Its all about creativity and keeping  customers happy and interested in what you are doing.

Take a booth for example, you may not think much about decorating a booth. But when you have a custom booth it leaves more room for creativity. If you have risers on your booths you are able to intertwine garland or lights in them. Which creates a special experience for the customer. Or if you have a solid step at the base of your booth you are able to line garland or ivy along the step or even place some sort of glitter.

Adding a colored table cloth to table tops helps everyone to get into the spirit. Red or green for Christmas, orange or brown for Thanksgiving, green for St. Patrick’s day, you get the idea.

Its also nice, depending on how much effort you want to put into this, to add a decoration to the table tops. Even if it is a small tea light or some sort of arrangement.

Enjoy your holidays, and furniture!
