As the weather is warming up, people tend to spend more time outside enjoying it for the season. This typically includes meals as well. Dining “al fresco” is a favorite pastime of the warmer seasons for many people. If your restaurant features an outdoor dining area, this could also mean an increase in profits, as people looking for outdoor dining would be interested in your restaurant.
Decks Increase Your Space
Adding a deck to your restaurant will increase the seating and the number of customers you can serve. During a busy season, this increase in available seating could mean a substantial increase in profits. Having more available seats also means that people may not have to wait as long to be seated, an issue that often drives diners to find a different place to eat. The outdoor option may also appeal to people who prefer to eat outside, and would otherwise pass over your restaurant. If you don’t choose to include outdoor dining in your restaurant plan, a deck may still be a good investment. Tables aren’t the only thing that requires space in your restaurant. You also need a place for guests to comfortably rest while they’re waiting for a table, and a covered deck is a great option, allowing them to safely stay out of the sun or rain but also out of your doorway.
Curb Appeal and Ambiance
An outdoor deck and canopy can help you improve the curb appeal of your restaurant. The canopy can be branded with your logo and brand colors, and the deck itself can be beautifully styled to match the level of comfort and sophistication you want in your restaurant. You can also choose to have the deck made from materials that match your brand, such as composite decking, which is often recycled, if your restaurant and brand are environmentally friendly. You can also add additional elements to compliment your brand and produce the ambiance you want, such as plants, outdoor heaters, and maybe even an outdoor fireplace.
Many diners are choosing to dine at home more often because their living expenses are going up, so when they do dine out they want it to be something exceptional. This is why many restaurants are choosing to make themselves unique with a concept, like farm-to-table cuisine or a gluten-free menu. Outdoor dining on a beautiful, comfortable deck can be a strong concept for your restaurant, drawing in more diners and making their experience unlike any other.
