Starting Small with a Simple Approach

Though adding outdoor dining areas has been shown to have a decidedly positive—and sometimes drastic—impact on sales and restaurant reputation, it may not be the best move for everyone. If you’re curious to see how your clientele will respond to the option of outdoor dining, you may want to start with something experimental and simple.

A few tables and chairs can make for a decent “trial” outdoor seating option. However, if you plan to try this out for short term to see how things go, you must invest in decent furniture. Outdoor seating needs to be inviting and comfortable, and you want this to build your business and its reputation, not diminish it.

Building a Strong Start with a Custom Patio

If you already know that outdoor seating will be well received with your clients, the next important step is to build something worthy of their time, attention, and patronage. What could be better than a custom patio space? Custom, hand-crafted commercial patio spaces give you the opportunity to fully customize your outdoor seating, using the materials that will suit your budget and visual preferences, allowing for space planning and offering an excellent way to capitalize on the benefits that outdoor seating can offer.

The Ultimate All-Weather Outdoor Dining Solution with Louvered Roofs

As great as a patio may be, especially on a sunny day, it can be quite frustrating for patrons if the weather starts to turn. But you needn’t stress too much if you’ve prepared appropriately. For the next step in great outdoor seating options, a louvered roof patio space can be ideal. This affords you the option of open, well-lit dining areas in the sun and secluded, safe, and most importantly dry dining when the weather misbehaves.

Full-Scale Outdoor Kitchens

Looking for something a little more unique or maybe an option that feels more inclusive? We’ve got just the right idea: an outdoor kitchen! Whether you opt for a full-scale and completely operational kitchen space, or just a simplistic bar-type setup that can handle appetizers and maybe accommodate a bar, an outdoor kitchen can make outdoor dining areas feel more inclusive and participatory for patrons.
