The restaurant market has taken advantage of what Crawford Industries has to offer by developing and producing table menus that are functional and attractive. In the past Crawford Industries has produced table menus for Dave & Buster’s and O’Charley’s. Crawford has enjoyed a recent opportunity to produce a table drink & dessert menu for Chili’s restaurants. What makes this product unique is that it utilizes Crawford’s “ProFuse™” process, which takes to printed pieces of plastic and “fuses” them together creating a binder that is offset printable in thicknesses typically too heavy to be run through UV offset presses. Using Crawford’s ProFuse™ process and other converting capabilities, gave Chili’s an outstanding looking menu for all their national restaurants.
