Non-Slip Mat And Drainage Mat Make Kitchens Safe!

Posted on: December 14th, 2012 by

The hardest thing I deal with, working in sales, is selling people stuff! I loathe nothing more than somebody trying to talk me into something. When you do that, it makes me feel like you’re just trying to make a buck. Every once in a while I see an opportunity where I really want to help someone, but the only way to do that is to sell them one of our products and I don’t know how to bring it up. This is my current dilemma :

 My best friend is a Pastry Chef and she’s complaining about her feet and back and also almost tripping at work. I immediately am thinking, oh she needs anti fatigue kitchen mats.  Turns out they have carpet runners all over the kitchen, which is horrible! Not even basic anti fatigue mats?  I grew up in the restaurant industry and I know how wet slippery and gross the kitchen floors can get, so I understand why they have runners everywhere (Technically all employees should have ‘non-slip’ shoes, but realistically they don’t).  If you’re a chef and you’re on your feet, in the same spot, for 8-12 hours a day, you need more support than just a ¼” piece of carpet.  Plus carpet just soaks up gook and I’m sure smell like grease.   Â

 I really want to hook up my friend’s restaurant with a good drainage mat, which will not only reduce slipping hazards but will also help the joints of all people involved but I don’t know how to bring it up! Especially since she’s not the deciding party. Matsmatsmats offers a large selection of quality anti-fatigue mats.  I have no doubt that we have the right non-slip floor mats that best suits her needs and her bosses budget. What I should really do is gift her one and hopefully her bosses will see it, like it, ask her where she got it, and call me themselves. Yay product placement!
