I think at times, we here at Dixie Seating Company forget that the products that we manufacture are actually used in the real world. On a recent trip to New England, I was reminded of how Dixie Seating Company products have become part of the landscape in this beautiful region of the United States. Throughout Maine, from Bar Harbor to Belfast, Kennebunk to Portland, our restaurant seating can be seen in some of the most sought-after dining locations. Whether you stop by Chase’s Daily in Belfast for the fresh farm-to-table vegetarian fare or grab a seat at The Thirsty WhaleTavern in Bar Harbor for their famous lobster rolls; it is likely that you will be sitting atop a Dixie Seating Company barstool or dining chair while you enjoy your meal.
In speaking to the owners, employees and managers at these locations, it is apparent that the same pride and effort that we put into making our chairs, is equally matched these restaurants and the work they do.
From locally sourced farm-to-table establishments to a Mexican and American cuisine, each restaurant has a passion to deliver quality which is a sentiment we are very familiar with. While you may see a few chairs that look pretty old, many restaurants have over twenty years of service, you sense the real culture that these locations display in making their establishments fantastic places to eat.
While traveling Maine, I took notice of the many fine Bed and Breakfast locations as well as historic inns which dominate the hospitality and lodging choices in Maine. Dixie Seating Company has just reached an agreement with the Select Registry, a prominent group of distinguished inns in North America to be an Associate Member and exclusive supplier to these local locations. It was a wonderful opportunity to see how perfectly befitting Dixie Seating Company’s timeless products would complement these properties.
Maine is beautiful and charming. As contemporary American realist painter, Jamie Wyeth said, “There’s a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique. I think. It’s absolutely a world onto itself.” It is such an honor to have pieces of our passion and hard work entwined in the tapestry of this beautiful state.
