Picking a picnic table for your next event – and for the next 20+ years
So, let’s dispel the rumor that you need to worry only about the next big event when picking a picnic table – because Return on Investment doesn’t work like that. And in park settings, and with commercial picnic table furniture purchases, ROI can be a huge factor.
More often than not, the readership of this blog is made up from professionals on the procurement, architectural, planning and government teams that make up municipal agencies or beyond. We also get a lot of readers from the hospitality industry. You can see our picnic tables (and other outdoor furniture) at hotels, resorts, restaurants and other high-traffic outdoor spaces throughout the United States and even abroad.
Still another group of readers is from theme parks, and other focused entertainment spaces. Businesses that have campuses and universities and other schools that need to fill out campus spaces are also part of our readership.
We also have a percentage of readers that come from the residential community, and are looking for a “buy it once and don’t worry about it” purchase. We make outdoor commercial picnic tables and other products that fit with that ethos.
Why are we going on and on about our readership? Because we know what’s important to them, we hear from them often. We know that maintenance matters. We know that durability and longevity, and lower total costs of ownership and ultimately ROI is crucial to their purchasing decisions.

We also know that we have a lot of competition in this space, and that we have an excellent value proposition. Below we want to try and show you how you can plan for the immediate needs of your organization (or your backyard as a residential homeowner), and still get the long-term benefits of choosing a best in class product.

Preparing for you next event by building for a sustainable future
So, as you peruse the different options in the outdoor furniture market, and picnic tables in particular, remember that you see our designs, and recognize them instantly for a reason – we don’t get replaced as often because we build products that are in place for decades, not months or years.
But we also know how important sustainability is from a purchasing perspective.
Sustainability as in: being smart with resources, and carefully planning for resource management and partnering with the companies that offer better resource and material utilization so you know that your purchase is leaving less of a footprint on the planet, and the environment.
But also sustainability from a business, and organizational perspective – because money does matter. Maintenance budgets do matter. Labor hours do matter. Safety, and longevity and durability are huge factors. When you buy a product, you want it to have a net positive effect on your bottom line, but also in your own sustainability as an organization and your ability to benefit from it in ways other than return on investment from a financial perspective. That’s what we are trying to do with each product we make.
- We engineer thoughtfully
- We employ great workers here in the USA
- We use premium steel, and coat it in polyvinyl, that makes it more resistant to weather and damage and allows it to be more user friendly
- We build products that will be here for more than a generation – so there is less material waste, and better total cost of ownership
Sustainability matters, and we take it seriously. Whatever you decide sustainability is, we can promise you, we have taken the steps to ensure that you can realize your part in it.
