NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Stuart Dean will launch its HardCore system for floor and wall resurfacing, restoration and protection to restaurant industry professionals for the first time at the Restaurant Facilities Management Association (RFMA) 2014 Annual Conference. Taking place Feb. 16-18, 2014 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Dallas, visitors to Stuart Dean's booth (#1324) will learn about the benefits of HardCore, an advanced system that creates beautiful, durable, highly cost-effective floors and walls over new or damaged concrete and other substrates. These often overlooked architectural surfaces represent a repetitive and costly back-of-the-house problem for RFMA attendees, which include restaurant facility directors, managers, project coordinators, owners/operators, construction managers, and operations and purchasing managers.
Stuart Dean will also hold an invitation-only cocktail party event on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe (2950 Texas Sage Trail, Fort Worth). During the event, guests will enjoy cocktails and appetizers and be able to see the full installation work Stuart Dean completed on the walls and floors of the restaurant's kitchen using the HardCore system, which includes heat-resistant flooring.
"Stuart Dean's HardCore product and service line offers a significant value proposition to restaurant industry professionals looking for a comprehensive solution that addresses a variety of new installation and restoration challenges in back-of-the-house environments," said Mark Parrish, president and CEO of Stuart Dean. "The use of the HardCore system at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe has created a fully encapsulated, seamless kitchen made of 100 percent epoxy, and we are excited to share these solutions at RFMA and showcase our work at a unique hospitality event."
