Service Ideas provides tabletop collections for creating an unforgettable experience. Seventy years ago, Art Murray began Service Ideas with a vision to improve table service. His founding item was a domed ashtray with a “Push for Service” light to signal wait staff. Since then, our tabletop solutions have expanded to sizzling plates, barware, table set-ups, and beyond.
