Choosing the right flooring for commercial kitchens and food service businesses is both an art and a science. Whether you’re addressing kitchen space, food storage, employee areas, or other space, Premier Concrete Coatings has the optimal epoxy floor coatings and concrete flooring solutions to meet your needs.
Floors play a large role within the food service industry. They are expected to perform under pressure as they support heavy equipment in the kitchen, a large amount of foot traffic, and possibly extreme changes in temperature, all while staying sanitary.
Maintaining a clean food & beverage area, while adhering to local, state and federal regulations, can be extremely difficult, and much more so for a large, industrial food processing plant floors. When protective resinous coatings are applied to the concrete, this task becomes much more feasible. These food service flooring systems create one continuous floor, in which there are no cracks or crevices where debris, mold and mildew can hide.
Polished concrete sealer is a durable, affordable option for any commercial kitchen or food service floor. It is slip-resistant and easy to clean by nature due to monolithic, static surface. Being a seamless floor coating means that no germs, dirt, or waste can penetrate through making for an allergy and smell-free environment. With the additional benefit of being easy to clean – any spills can be easily cleaned with soap & water. Furthermore, the surface has a special static grip that makes it safe and slip-resistant, ensuring a safe flooring surface for employees.
Polished concrete is a very durable and beautiful flooring system. It is perfect for retail spaces, distribution and high pedestrian traffic areas as it is easy to maintain and can be renewed if neglected. However, for spaces with open food and chemicals, like restaurants or food service plants, it is slightly inferior.
Polished concrete by nature is still porous, meaning it can accept any acidic juices, chemicals, and other broken down contaminants over time. This results in stains that are burned into the concrete (will never be able to remove the stains) and further break down the concrete. Simply go to your local Kroger grocery store and walk down the Pickle aisle – here you will see irremovable stains.
Concrete sealer is a better option in a commercial kitchen or food service environment. Any grease, acidic food topping, and cleaning chemical can simply be wiped up off the floor due to it being COATED. In other words, the surface is not-porous and requires a mild cleaner to return back to normal. No stains.

Grind and Seal systems are simple floor transformations consisting of grinding existing concrete to remove any coating or scratches. Following the grinding process, all the joints and repairs are filled with material. The next day, after the repair material has cured, we grind all the joints and repairs down to achieve a seamless surface. The final step is to apply two coats of urethane onto the entire concrete surface. We apply two coats of urethane to achieve maximum durability. This system typically takes 2-3 days to install.
