Rock 'n Roll Eliminated in Restaurants

A Vancouver, BC company is solving the problem frustrating millions of diners around the world-the restaurant table that rocks and rolls! The wobbly table is being eliminated, enabling diners to enjoy themselves while reducing costs to restaurant owners in lost server productivity, spillage and dry cleaning bills.

Table Shox, from Fundamental Designs Inc. of Vancouver, BC, is the world's smallest shock absorber that automatically stabilizes the table each time it is moved. It's an affordable solution that installs in seconds. Table Shox is already keeping diners on the level at hundreds of installations across North America including KFC, Arby's and Aramark.

Michael Mendelssohn of the Baja Sonora Mexican Grill in Long Beach, CA says "Table Shox has answered my most embarrassing problem. My supply of napkins is lasting a lot longer because they're not being jammed under the feet of my tables anymore!"

FundaMetal Designs is a BC company that recently won a new business contest sponsored by Simon Fraser University for the Table Shox product. A spilt drink at an airport lounge triggered the search for the 'post-it note' solution for the restaurant industry. Table Shox was invented-solving the frustration of millions of restaurant diners and the pocket books of restaurant owners everywhere.

"Table Shox solves a frustration everyone has experienced and remembered-the wobbly table" says Ian MacDonald, Table Shox Founder. "With Table Shox, diners and servers can focus on the enjoyment of the meal rather than engineering napkins, cutlery and matches into custom table levelers."

Table Shox will be on display at the premier restaurant-industry trade show, The National Restaurant Association Restaurant Motel-Hotel Show in Chicago from May 18-21. "Table Shox was one of the hottest products demonstrated at last years show" says Evian Macmillan, President of Fundamental Designs, Inc. "The response greatly exceed our expectations and we anticipate a greater response this year".
