What Makes a Great Restaurant Patio?February 25th, 2021 | by Admin Deck Experts | in Outdoor Living Space | 0
A great restaurant patio can generate a lot of money for you. An excellent restaurant patio can attract a lot of business to your operation because it markets your business at the same time that it's serving your clientele.
Here are some tips on what makes a great restaurant patio.
1. Thorough cleaning:
After a harsh long winter remember to give your restaurant patio a proper cleaning. The windows and doors should be cleaned thoroughly. The furniture, fences, tables, and chairs should be neat and tidy. No one wants to eat or drink where it's dirty.
2. Make your restaurant patio enticing and eye-catching:
The décor and design of your patio should be eye-catching to attract many guests. People will walk by and see your business operations. Your patio should be well branded with a mindblowing style, theme, and your business colours. Consider adding a few fresh flowers and or candles to tables.
3. Be strategic with your business:
Your tables and seats should be well arranged. When setting them, consider the type of clients that you want to attract. If your patio caters for bigger groups of folks and the young, you should set up classic couches and coffee tables. Buy patio furniture designed of wood, metal or recycled plastic composite.
Make sure that guest and staff can circulate around tables as needed.
Because of COVID-19, you may want to erect some partitions or curtains or tents.
4. Come up with shade:
Make sure that your restaurant is sufficiently equipped with tents or umbrellas to protect your clients from direct sunlight or rain. There are different kinds of umbrellas you can buy that are ideal for restaurant patios and can articulate and change positions.
5. Use scent advertising:
Attract many customers by welcoming them with a sweet smell. No one can resist the smell of fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, and grilled meat.
Make sure the ground is level and is well lighted and well marked for when the sun goes down.
If you know you'll have some cool days or evenings, prepare for that with some appropriate outdoor heating.
With these tips in mind, we're sure that you will have a beautiful and money-making patio in no time.
