Spring is here and the temperatures are getting warmer and warmer each week as we get closer to summer. What do people like to do when the weather is great? They like to eat or drink a beer or 2 on a terrace! As a restaurant owner, this is one of your best times of the year to make money so you know how important your terrace is for your business. However, your terrace may not look that great, perhaps a bit dated, and in this article, we will give you tips to make it amazing just in time for the warm season.
Decorate it to Make it the Most Attractive Terrace on the Block!
Nowadays, people, especially younger ones, are looking for the hottest and trendiest spots to hang out. Whether it is the best American style restaurant or the coolest Irish Pub in town, people want to go to the best places there are and this includes terraces.
If your terrace has not been refreshed for decades, now would be a very good time to give it an extreme makeover. Try to find a style that suits your restaurant well and that will be attractive to your customers. Review everything, including flooring, walls, accessories, etc. and change everything that you can change according to your budget.
Acquire New Furniture for Your Customers’ Comfort and to Get Style Points!
Another very important thing to keep in mind when renovating your restaurant’s terrace is its furniture.
Indeed, your customers will use your furniture during their entire time at your place so it needs to be both comfortable and solid. It also needs to be good looking since it is a part of the atmosphere you want to create on your terrace. For example, it would not be a good idea to put wooden tables and restaurant chairs on a very modern terrace where metal is everywhere but they would look awesome on a microbrewery’s terrace. In short, you need to be consistent with the overall style you chose for your terrace when buying new furniture.
A high quality furniture manufacturer will be able to help you to select the best furniture for your restaurant’s terrace according to the style you want to give it and your budget. Do not hesitate to call one!
Hire Smiling and Upbeat Staff!
Of course, you will say that you know that. Still, we believe to reiterate this aspect. Staff quality goes a long way to keep customers happy and make them returning ones. If your staff is smiling, engaging and upbeat, it will help to deliver your message which is that your terrace is the best one. However, if your staff look like they would rather be somewhere else during their whole shift, it will have a negative impact on your customers’ experience and they may decide not to return to your terrace or worse, tell their friends not to go to your business. Choose your staff wisely!
This concludes our article on how to make your terrace amazing this summer. We hope that reading it has inspired you to take action to give your terrace an extreme makeover.
