Client: Frankie & Benny’s
Job: Awning Recovers
The refurbishment of the Frankie & Benny’s restaurant in Rochester is a recent project within the company’s re-branding. They have modernised their restaurants by replacing the previous combination of colours with this red bespoke striped acrylic material. Radiant Blinds has enjoyed a good working relationship with The Restaurant Group for many years carrying out installations and refurbishments for not only Frankie & Benny’s but Chiquitos, Coast to Coast, Garfunkel’s and Joe’s Kitchen. From the start, Frankie & Benny’s covers have been hand cut and stitched in Radiant’s factory creating the F&B bespoke stripe. Radiant Blinds keeps a record of each site detailing the sizes and technical information. This enables them to provide an efficient service when there is awning replacement/recovering or refurbishment required. The Radiant staff can refer to their working sizes so production can be started promptly which is important. This saves time on unnecessary site visits to obtain measurements.
Radiant Blinds strives to source top grade components and materials to manufacture their awnings. Their framework consists of anodised aluminium extrusion which is connected with quality fittings. This is covered in an acrylic material, cut to size and stitched in the factory. Signwriting is hand painted on to the fabric by experienced signwriters. Many of the Radiant Blinds workforce have been with the company for 30-40 years and have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience which they are happy to share with new members of staff who soon become part of the Radiant ‘team’.
Frankie & Benny’s has served New York Italian food for over 20 years. The exterior has a distinctive look which welcomes you into their inviting interior.
