What is Table Jacks?
Table Jack stabilizes the wobbly table bases that plague the typical restaurant bar-style table with a commercial-grade design that’s simple to install. The kit comes with a Table Jack, washers, screws, and glides. The Jack is attached to one leg, and the three glides are screwed to the other three.
Who Owns Table Jacks?
Steve Christian has been in the restaurant business for over 26 years and owns Christian’s Tailgate Bar and Grill, which has several locations in Houston. His restaurant was recently voted the best burgers in Houston. He also started Chill Solutions in 2015, which specializes in products for the service industry.
Steve Christian understands the restaurant business, having been an owner for decades, and he also knows the nuances that make the difference for customers.
Steve’s primary frustration with the restaurant experience was the wobbly table. This issue could interrupt an otherwise pleasant meal, and he certainly didn’t want to frustrate his customers or servers.
So Steve invested hundreds of thousands of dollars to design the perfect solution based on the model of a car jack. In 2011 he officially launched the Table Jack as a product and began to sell it to well-known restaurants at a steady pace.
