holiday celebration

The temperatures are finally cooling down and that means fall has finally arrived. I like to refer to the period beginning with Labor Day to New Year’s Day as the holidays. Once Labor Day arrives there are very few weekends left during this time for consumers to host holiday-related parties. As a service provider, it is your time to capitalize on the parties by offering consumers a wide variety of products to assist in easy party planning allowing them to enjoy the event. Offering clients a variety of products also allows them to spend their budget dollars more efficiently by keeping them from shelling out their money to purchase party equipment like tables, chairs and other hospitality items.

Often times when people are coordinating all the little details for a special event, they either completely forget the chairs or they get hung up on wanting something that is completely out of their budget. McCourt Manufacturing offers a wide variety of chairs from the beautiful Chiavari to the Econolite® plastic folding chair. There are a number of other options as well, including the Custom Color Series 5™ line.

All things in the event rental business continue to point to customization and personalization. Gone are the days of doing things just because that is how they’ve always been done. Clients are looking for anything from the rustic look and farm-style tables to minimalist and everything in between. The underlying theme is that they are looking for unique products to make their event personal and unique. McCourt Manufacturing offers many products to give you the ability to offer your clients those unique products.

table setting

The restaurant dining room plays the largest role in the overall vibe and look of your restaurant. The look and feel of your restaurant consist of many things such as the wait staff, décor and tables and chairs. The types of tables and chairs you choose for your restaurant determines what type of restaurant your guests perceive it to be. For example, long tables promote family-style meals, small tables for two promote intimate settings for guests, and pub-style tables promote mingling amongst guests.

outdoor event

Football season is upon us and that means tailgating! Tailgating has come a long way from the days of inviting a few friends over before the game and throwing some burgers on the grill. These days it is quite the event involving bringing out the big screen to watch all the pre-game festivities and lots of great table set-ups for 50 or so of your best friends. Sometimes the tailgate is more eventful than the game. Tailgating has also become big business for many rental companies expanding their business models to not only supplying the tables and chairs, but also setting the tailgate up for fans. If your rental company is looking for an additional income stream, this may be just what you’ve been looking for.

Summer outdoor events are some of my favorites because they are typically a bit more laid-back and relaxed. With that being said, it is important that event venues and restaurants offer proper food storage in the right temperatures to avoid foodborne illnesses. The last thing you need to tarnish your reputation is someone or several people getting sick from food served at your venue.

Gone are the days of sitting through school performances or assemblies in hard, uncomfortable chairs thanks to McCourt Manufacturing’s padded auditorium chair. No more squirming around trying to reposition yourself during the assembly, because these auditorium chairs feature seat and back cushions. The seat cushion is 2.75” thick and the back offers padded lumbar support.

One of our customers requested a 10-foot diameter round table for their event. Since the raw material for these tables is not available in that large of a size, we came up with an innovative solution that left this customer with an adaptable 5-part table with multiple uses!

It seems as if every commercial lately has something to do with Christmas in July. You may be thinking that Christmas is a long ways off, but if you do the math, it is only five months away--that is approximately 20 weeks out. In all reality, now is the perfect time to book Christmas events. Companies are already thinking about Christmas parties and getting event locations and dates nailed down. Some companies may want to stick with the same thing they have done in years past, because it is easy to book and they know the venue staff will take care of their needs. You know, the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This is all well and good, if you are that venue, but what if you are not. How do you convince the company to give your venue a try this year?

Summer weddings are fast approach and fall weddings are right around the corner. These seasons bring about a lot of events. McCourt Manufacturing can help you supply your venue with a wide variety of tables and chairs for all your clients’ needs from folding chairs to Chiavari to farmhouse-style. In addition to offering your clients with a great selection of tables and chairs, they are also looking to you for advice and your expertise. It is not uncommon for brides and event hosts to get overwhelmed and “lost in the weeds” and overthink every decision. It is best to guide them to focus on the key details having the greatest impact on the event. The rest will fall into place.

McCourt Manufacturing offers a selection of kids chairs to compliment your venue space and give you a competitive edge over your competitors. Many of your clients may want to set up a specific location for kids to enjoy the event with things of interest to them allowing their parents the freedom to enjoy the event knowing their kids are happy and safe.

McCourt offers the Kids Klassic Folding Chair and the lovely Kids Chiavari Chair.  

Farm to table restaurants have steadily seen an increase in popularity over the past few years and that upward trend doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon. Personally, I’m always looking for a great new local restaurant that offers great nutritious food with an amazing atmosphere. My youngest college-aged daughter and her friends feel the same or are possibly more inclined to search out a unique restaurant.  I’ve noticed that her generation is really into unique boutique-type restaurants that offer a great selection of coffee, good food, and a cool vibe. In order to create this vibe, you need all the right décor and furniture. McCourt Manufacturing is here to help you with the perfect farmhouse table and chairs that will give your restaurant that homey, cool feel patrons are looking for.
