Grandfather Clocks in the Lobby of a Restaurant

Restaurant owners certainly have their work cut out for them in terms of staying competitive. Of course, first and foremost the food must be good – consistently good enough that customers return again and again; and the meals must be in line, pricewise, with what people would expect to pay for that particular type of cuisine. Beyond the food – which is of course most important – a successful restaurant must guarantee consistent, professional and courteous service. If the service is poor, customers will not come back; it’s that plain and simple. Additionally, the atmosphere of a restaurant is vitally important. Customers want to feel that that there was attention given to detail and that the owners had a vision. Customers assume that this attention to detail will extend to the food as well and they anticipate a good experience the second they walk in the door.

Because décor is so important in the overall image of a restaurant, it is important to think carefully when designing a restaurant’s interior. Some restaurant owners, recognizing this importance, are turning to a tried and true element of sophisticated décor – the grandfather clock.

Grandfather clocks have always had an air of elegance about them – standing regally in the homes of families for generations. But this sophistication and elegance that they so easily lend to a home can also be lent to a non-residential property as well. Grandfather clocks that are placed in a grand lobby of a restaurant welcome visitors with melody and familiarity – giving the area the warmth and intimacy of someone’s living room; certainly a nice way to prepare customers for a lovely meal ahead.

Grandfather Clocks Bridge the Generation Gap

There are very few things that are able to span time – that are ageless and timeless and can just easily as appeal to those in one generation as they do in another generation. Grandfather clocks are one such item; a timeless piece of furniture that displays craftsmanship as well as the ability to operate on a functional level. For many of us the grandfather clock has stood in homes of relatives through the years; a clear and present reminder of all that encompasses home. So it’s unsurprising that the grandfather clock continues to occupy that same space from one generation to the next.

If you are someone for whom a grandfather clock was not in their family homes growing up, there is no time like the present to create a family heirloom that will serve one generation just as loyally as it did the previous generation.
