ONE SLAB AT A TIME
We live in a small town, but we have big plans...
We are saving landfills from being clogged by countertop waste that doesn't belong there, and will not decompose over 1000's of generations.
Serving Slabs was originally created by Derrick Neikam to make gifts for friends and family. Shortly there after a real business sprouted up. Instead of dumpster diving, we now work with local suppliers and divert unused granite countertop from landfills before it even gets into the dumpster. On average we divert 20,000 lbs of granite per month and hope to divert tons (literally) of granite as the business grows. We repurpose the discarded granite into beautiful household items such as serving trays, platters, cutting boards, lazy susans, candle holders, trivets, coasters, table runners and cake stands, with new products coming out regularly. With the variety of different colors and graining, no two pieces are alike. We then chisel the raw slabs each into a unique shape usually determined by the natural characteristics of the stone.
We have also launched Salida Recycled Stone. This business focuses on bringing building materials such as pavers, tiles, split face stone and fire pits to our local Southern Colorado community. http://salidarecycledstone.com/
During all of our efforts, in 2017 we surpassed 1 million pounds of saving and repurposing remnant granite countertop.
In addition to our core business, living in a small community allows us to give back and make a bigger difference locally versus a big city. We have employed several people since moving to Salida, and donate our work to multiple charities raising funds for local organizations and families in need. We are also active members of the Rotary Club of Salida, Colorado.
