Trent Griffith – Talk’n Tables – The winner from the RIDC meeting!

Let Our Tables Do Your Talk’n

Talk’n Tables™…Tabletop Advertising at its Best

Talk’n Tables™has a unique way of connecting local businesses with local restaurants throughout the United States while increasing business for both. This is achieved by focusing on an effective alternative to routine product advertising.

Quite often when the Talk’n Tables™ marketing concept is seen,

the first words spoken are:


Talk’n Tables™ utilizes the most common visual part of any restaurant


Talk’n Tables™ replaces the existing tabletops with solid oak, custom designed, one-of-a-kind table tops that complement any restaurant décor.

Working with the owner and/or decorator of the restaurant, we offer a multitude of custom variations -background color, pictures, logos, etc. – to ensure that the table tops reflects the desired décor.

In addition, the polyurethane-covered solid oak table tops will have space available for local businesses to advertise. These ads are digital, full color, computer generated and are permanently laminated into the tables.

Let’s Have Fun, Make Lots of Money And Help Lots of People!
