Restaurant Canopies Can Help Increase Revenue
As a restaurant owner, you might attribute shade structures to outdoor parks and playgrounds, or even commercial businesses that focus on outdoor services, like washing cars. But shade structures can provide numerous advantages to restaurants, too. In fact, because the food service industry is always struggling with increased competition, rising costs, and changes in consumer habits, restaurants can benefit greatly from installing shade structures. Here are 4 reasons why:
- Increase Useable Space. Shade structures can increase customer seating by providing an outdoor option – especially during the summer or for restaurants located in year-round, warm climates. Shaded outdoor patios and rooftops remain cooler and protect patrons from the sun. They can also provide rain protection, allowing you to maximize your seating options no matter the weather.
- Enhance Curb Appeal. Whether you are attracted to the aesthetics of our sails or the functionality of our retractable umbrellas, our shade structures can improve your restaurant’s curb appeal. Available in a range of attractive colors, shade structure can make your restaurant more noticeable and more engaging to new customers.
- Improve Customer Experience. Many restaurants forget that their customer’s experience starts the moment they walk through their door, and throughout the entire duration of their wait for a table. Shade structures, such as a covered lounge area, can contribute to a better customer experience by providing more space for customers to relax, talk and drink as they wait for a table.
- Grow Restaurant Revenue. During summer, spring and fall months, outdoor seating can attract more customers and help increase customer spending. In fact, statistics show restaurants with a deck or patio can increase revenue by up to 30 percent. The reason customers are attracted to outdoor spaces derives from the comfort and allure of dining al fresco, which can be further aided through shaded structures.
