A Q&A with Greg Veale, President, Altro Americas

What are the trends you’re seeing in restaurant flooring today?

Greg Veale: What we’ve been seeing for quite some years is a lot more emphasis on making the front-of-house more colorful, with designs and patterns, but still very functional and durable given the traffic. Also, restaurants are trying to achieve a much warmer, “residential” feel. They are tending to move away from coated or colored concrete floors.
