Hi folks -
Have taken the plunge and decided to open my own coffee shop. It's one thing to work in one, quite another to start one !
Perhaps I'm being a little paranoid with the health people. Their blurb says that walls in a prep area should be "smooth, nonabsorbent and so constructed so as to be easilly cleanable."
Fair enough - I have dry wall in right now so what would you recomend?
Also, ceiling tiles, any recomendations there also.
Thanks in advance

Basic Design Info

FRP board for the walls is available at Home Depot, Lowes, or any good building supply. There are also special cleanable ceiling tiles available to directly replace the tiles in the area behind the counter, in the kitchen, or in all designated work areas. It wouldn't be a bad idea to consult with a local restaurant designer regarding local codes.
