The Poplar Lodge restaurant in Hendersonville, NC was long overdue for a facelift. Owner Robert Quattelbaum decided to renovate the entire structure from the ground up. With the grand re-opening just days away, there was one area of the lodge that still needed to be addressed: The terrace floor. Quattelbaum’s master plan called for carpet to be installed on the terrace, but he knew from experience what was coming.
“I expected to see Bob and his crew crawling around on their hands and knees pushing puddles of glue, as they had done at my other restaurants,” Quattelbaum said. “Instead, after laying back the carpet, they walked around the area and sprayed on a thorough, even coat of adhesive. In a matter of moments, they were rolling carpet out and trimming to rock walls.”
