The 2011 National Restaurant Association Show was an enormous success. As we reflect on this past weekend’s event in Chicago, Illinois, we can’t help but share our excitement and experiences with others at this show. The NRA Show is one of the most respected and impressive shows we have been to. We are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to share our products within the restaurant industry. It was a tremendous outing for Mesa Safe Company, and we definitely look forward to meeting more people next year!
As a company who specializes in high security steel constructed safes, we certainly stood out from the crowd since most companies were restaurant or food related. We are most grateful and appreciative to those who visited our booth. We believe that for every restaurant owner and other cash handling businesses, that investing in quality steel safes are the ideal solution to keeping your money safe and protected against theft.
Our depository safe line was a massive hit. The public’s interest in our products was exceptional and exceeded our expectations. We encountered a huge amount of response as restaurant owners are seeking to purchase a high security safe for their restaurant. Many people asked questions and were eager to learn about the benefits of an all steel construction line. We were more than happy to answer all the questions we received about safety, security and cash management. We are very blessed to have the tools necessary to both educate and provide an affordable lasting solution for business owners. From the crowd’s reaction, the depository safes seem to be the ideal choice for them.
We also showcased a new addition to our Mesa Safe line, the outer locker depository safe. This safe has received a great amount of praise, as they liked having an exterior compartment instead of an inner compartment for quicker access to documents, coinage or other miscellaneous valuables. Overall, we had many compliments on the standard features of our depository line such as the front-loading door for quick deposits, the electronic lock for added security and pre-drilled anchor holes to secure onto the floor or wall.
All in all, the show was wonderful and we had a great time engaging other booths that shared dishes and cooking techniques. We learned so much about the restaurant business that we are driven and motivated to expand our products to this everlasting and growing industry. We would like to thank everyone for visiting our booth and asking questions. We are already looking forward to another successful show in 2012 in Chicago. Always remember, it’s “Better Mesa Safe than Sorry!”
May 12th, 2011 - Day 3 at the National Hardware Show was the last day of the event. It was a very eventful and fun-filled three days having the opportunity to engage with other similar companies who specialize in security and safety. It was a pleasure to interact with so many people who were interested in our safes. It was amusing to see their reactions when they saw the difference between our safes compared to what they were normally exposed to. Many of the visitors couldn’t believe how vulnerable the other types of safes really were.
We were very pleased with the turnout. The Mesa team had an incredible experience with everyone involved, from attendees to exhibitors. We made great friends throughout the show from our fellow neighbors to the people who visited.
Our plastic vs. steel educational campaign was one of the main attractions at our booth. It generated enormous amount interest, questions and comments. People were eager to know more about why “their safe” wasn’t as secure as our all steel construction full line of safes. They were upset, surprised, shocked and intrigued by how easy it was to breach a plastic constructed safe. Many wanted to know why they have been misled and how they could get themselves a safe like ours. The NH show, booth and interaction with everyone was a terrific and awe-inspiring experience the entire time we were in Las Vegas. We are very proud here at Mesa Safe to be able to offer you a product that we believe can’t be compromised. We rely on safety, security and honesty as much as you do. We will continue to do everything we can to bring you the best products available without sacrificing quality, affordability or your safety. Bottom line, we never settle for less.
As we wrapped up the show, we said our good byes to Las Vegas and packed up our stuff to head back to our headquarters in Orange, CA. However, the show doesn’t stop there, we’ll be looking forward to the upcoming National Restaurant Show in Chicago next week where we’ll be eager to show off our products and interact with other manufacturers and visitors once again. Until then…
Thanks again, and remember… “Better Mesa Safe than Sorry!”
It is imperative that guns should be kept safely out of reach when not in use away from children, but more importantly, away from burglars. There have been plenty of incidents where gun owners carelessly put away their weapons without proper security.
With that being said, gun owners can now safely put away their weapons in affordable, high quality gun safes. With newly constructed and modernized gun safes it can be a frustrating site for burglars and thieves. There’s nothing more dangerous than stolen weapons from your home that could be used against you and your family. Make sure you have a modern gun safe to keep not only your weapons secure, but to protect your family.
There has been news that burglars have been busy stealing a good amount of guns. In the legion hall and private rural homes in Ringgold, Union and Clarke Counties of Iowa there have been reports that more than 50 guns have been taken. With guns and weapons being stolen, gun safes are the most popular in Des Moines, Iowa. Strauss Security Solutions in Urbandale have sold safes in Des Moines since the 1920s.
Chad Breheny of Strauss Security Solutions emphasizes that
“It’s very important to lock the guns up, not only to protect them from being stolen, but also just for safety if you do have children in the home or anybody else who could get to these guns.”
Breheny also added that safe manufacturers and designers gave meticulously thought about the design of gun safes. From the security of 11 ½ thick deadbolts to the 4-inch steel doors and the electronic keypad locks. Some argue that trigger locks and cables are much less expensive and affordable, however they don’t offer the same maximum security as a safe, which can still be susceptible to theft.
