Presque Isle Downs Casino (Erie, PA), a recently opened state-of-the-art slot, simulcast racing and wagering entertainment Mecca, adopted the new non-skid FRP trays for its entire casino service areas–casino gaming floor, three upscale dining areas and four lounges.
Presque Isle Beverage Director Paul Twidle was looking for an alternative to cork-surface trays, which servers had complained were heavy as they absorbed moisture, and the glasses also “walked” on them as a result. Having researched and tested a number of trays on the market, Twidle resoundingly chose the non-skid tray stating, “With the heavy casino traffic, the servers needed lighter trays with a surer surface. Usually you can’t get both of these qualities in a tray, but the new non-skid tray’s were big enough and light enough; plus the gum-top design prevented slippage. Our servers love them as most can carry up to 20 drinks at a time without a problem.”
