Five Guys Burgers & Fries, one of the fastest-growing better burger brands in the United States, approached Creative Materials Corporation to help them investigate slipperiness issues they were experiencing on the dining room floors which appeared after a change to their floor maintenance program. Five Guys engaged Creative Materials as their current tile program supply partner to help develop solutions to the slipperiness of the floors that would also allow Five Guys to continue to use their newly developed floor maintenance program.
Utilizing our C-Suite level relationships with our manufacturing partners, Creative Materials worked with the current manufacturer of Five Guys’ floor tile to develop a custom textured floor tile with an identical aesthetic to the existing product. In so doing, Five Guys was able to achieve a greater than 15% improvement to the Coefficient of Friction rating of the floor tile without any change to their well-recognized restaurant environment.
