National Restaurant Association to Showcase Academy Commercial Shade Structures in Chicago

Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) May 03, 2012 -- From May 5th to 8th, Academy Inc. will dazzle dining doyens with culinary commercial shade creations during the NRA (National Restaurant Association) Show 2012 at McCormick Place. The commercial shade leader has a demonstrated dedication to restaurateurs and food service operators. With over 100 years of custom shade creation experience, as well as an array of well-known and highly recognizable clients, Whole Foods Market and Jamba Juice to name a couple, Academy Inc. has both the "know how" and the "how to" of designing eye catching and product promoting visuals for a beautiful branding effect.

The NRA Show 2012 promises a sensational soiree of innovative restaurant ideas with 58,000 industry professionals from more than 100 countries and 1,800 exhibitors in attendance. Education sessions, throughout the duration of the four day event, provide the necessary knowledge to culinary connoisseurs hoping to amp up their businesses, while other events, such as the World Culinary Showcase demonstrations, effectively display tactics and techniques for improvement. Recently announced presenters at this affair include Todd English, Stephanie Izard, David Burke and Maneet Chauhan. On Sunday, May 6, from 1-3:30 p.m., former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, serves as the keynote presentation speaker in the Arie Crown theater. Entertainment opportunities supply a networking platform; such events include Sunday's 1-4 p.m. "IWSB Star of the Bar Mixology Competition," Sunday night's tickets-required "2012 Restaurants Rock" music and cocktails affair and the International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event intertwined with the NRA Event. This exhibition of culinary classics and food favorites will occur on May 6 & 7th at McCormick Place as well.

Commercial shade products dress up a once drab eatery and add alluring curb appeal; however, they also forever imprint the restaurant's logo in the mind of the clientele. Whole Foods green emblem-evoking feelings of nature and the earth-and Jamba Juice's blender-appropriate swirl are recognizable by cuisine connoisseurs and food fanatics alike. A canopy or awning at an organic eatery with outdoor space brings the diner closer to nature and truly embraces that "farm to table" feel, while umbrellas at table on the local healthy restaurant's patio enables visitors to cleanse their body with nutritional foods, while also cleansing their souls with a relaxing meal in the open air. These structures enhance the environment, while carefully crafted symbols, logos and lettering reach the view of hunger passersby's from next door or down the street. Signage that embodies the vibe of the establishment, coupled with delectable dining experiences, forever etch the eatery into the mind of the patrons.

Academy Inc. adds both technology and true personalization into the mix to create the perfect tribute to any dining establishment. When the sun goes down, some cafes, gastro pubs and local trendsetter favorites are just awakening and starting their busy hours. Backlit lighting allows awnings, canopies and so forth to work and shine through the night to provide a magical monument to draw in crowds and keep the party and conversation going until the wee hours of the morning.

Academy Inc. also employs Computer Automated Design (CAD) to truly show dedication and determination to the client. Forming the finished product is an open conversation, where the professionals provide guidance, ideas and design, all the while valuing and welcoming the client's input. "Immediate and direct feedback" is a cornerstone of the "Academy Difference," as there's direct access to all departments via phone, as opposed to automated voice messaging systems. After the exchange of ideas, but before the shade is put into production, CAD displays a visual aid to show the curious customer the creation that awaits.
