It looks like Zoe’s Kitchen is a chain. They should have a corporate headquarters. I have found when dealing with restaurant chains that contacting their headquarters is a good first step. Typically, there is someone at corporate that has colors on file for all their stores or at least the manufacturer of the booths with contact information. Either of these are a good place to start when searching for vinyl colors. If that proves to be no help, the last course of action if you can’t find the color in your vinyl sample books is to send out a 2″ x 2″ sample of the vinyl in question to your local vinyl distributor and then go to larger and larger distributors until someone can find that color for you.
I have had instances when the color is no longer available. When this happens you have no choice but to come up with a new color. Luckily, you have to recover 6 out of the 8 booths already. The other two will not be far behind. The restaurant manager will appreciate your work to help get them the closest color available. Let them know that you exhausted all avenues available to you and that you recommend them choosing from a family of colors and a manufacture that have both been around for a long time. There are 1000’s of vinyls produced by lots of manufactures not all of them are currently available. Once the customer realizes this they will see the advantage of picking a new color. Some of the larger distributors you might want to check with would be Keyston Brothers (770)-209-7890 or Wholesale USA
(800)-239-5952. Keyston will have a wide variety available but they are not the cheapest by any means and Wholesale will have a great deal to choose from, possibly better prices, but they are not the easiest distributor to work with. Wholesale is the last line of defense for me. There are other distributors around the country. Do not get discouraged. I have been told certain colors have been discontinued by some distributors only to find thousands of yards available from others. It all depends on the contacts that the distributor your speaking with has in their arsenal.
Best of luck in your search,
