Case Study: British Bankers Club Restaurant

British Bankers Club wanted a commercial kitchen floor that was nonslip, easy to clean, and most of all, durable.

Robert Fischer owns five restaurants in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, California. When it was time to purchase kitchen flooring for his upscale eateries British Bankers Club and Reposado, he wanted floors that were durable above all else.

After exploring less-durable alternatives like quarry tile, Fischer determined fully vitrified Argelith tile would be the best way to get the job done.

“Installation is the key to the success of the product,” Fischer said. “I love this stuff!”
