Some Helpful Terms

FF&E Procurement: Procurement includes many steps before and after purchasing. These usually include research, sourcing, negotiating, supply chain management, transport, budgeting, project management and installation.

  1. Design a schematic layout

FF&E in 3 Simple Steps

Now, the good part… Here’s how we help make FF&E procurement easy!

#1 Products for Every Project

Large hospitality projects require a variety of equipment and furniture types. You’ll find the stands, podiums, and bars you need at our companies: The Valet Spot, The Security Station, The Portable Bar Company, and The Hostess Station.

#2 Buildable Basics

Models alongside matching Hostess Stand and Bar

Our high-quality base models provide reduced lead times when you order them as-is. If you have more time, customize them to match your brand’s style or different projects. You can also carry a custom theme across equipment. For example, design a matching hostess stand and bar. We even offer some custom functionality.

#3 Portable, Versatile, and Perfect for Any Space

Our podiums, stands and bars are fully portable. That means you can easily move or store them. Our multi-segment flash bars can even be split into satellite bars.
