Most of the U.S. is ready to go outside when summertime rolls around. And if you're in a southern state, it's time to head outdoors again come November! One of our favorite pastimes is sitting on a patio. Enjoying some great food, music, and fine adult beverages with friends is what life is all about. In fact, according to OpenTable, 82% of people want to see outdoor dining options continue to grow! If you don't already have one, now is the time to create an outdoor space your customers will love. Check out our top three reasons why you need an outdoor space at your restaurant!
More Space for Your Restaurant
Increasing the number of tables is hard when you only have a specific amount of square footage at your eatery. Instead, think outside the box and look outside your four walls. Go out to the sidewalk and look around. You'll see plenty of room to add on tables and chairs to increase your capacity. In fact, most cities love the idea of you doing this! Often, you need a permit to set up an outdoor dining space. Check with your local government for the latest information on your area's zoning rules.
New Dining Experiences
Sidewalk cafés and patios open a different dining experience than you might be able to
offer. Patios and sidewalk cafés provide a great space to host local musicians and artists. Local authors could also use the area for book reading. These new dining experiences will be a new revenue source for you! Also, your patrons will be more comfortable and stay longer - leading to more sales!
Outdoor dining offers you a unique and "free" way to advertise to potential patrons of your joint. Why is that? If you set up a sidewalk café, passers-by will:
See Your Food
Smell Your Food
People watch while patrons enjoy themselves
Then, grab your phone, snap a few photos of individuals enjoying your patio, and post them on social media. There's a good chance that the post will go viral, bringing new customers to your restaurant.
