Restaurant Uses Lego To Tackle A Traditional Restaurant Problem


A restaurant in Denmark has come up with a unique way to solve the age old problem of tackling the table plan. If you've worked in a restaurant or even hovered around the front door long enough you'll often see the manager or host with a furrowed brow looking at a clipboard trying to fit in groups of people into what looks like complicated mathematical equation. Restaurants tend to hold a certain amount of people but by moving tables around, pulling them together or creating new "sections" you can often squeeze a couple more happy customers in.


The Danes don't like to leave that sort of stuff to chance though and as the original inventors of Lego they've put the kids toy to good use with this quirky table plan. The tables are laid out with red bricks signifying customers and taken tables with the green showing open spaces. We are sure it is not without it's faults but it is certainly a cool little marketing story and a good way of showing customers who refuse to believe you have a spare table that everything is red! We love it!!
