Benefits of a Shade Structure for Restaurants

Shade structures can provide numerous advantages to restaurants. Architecturally, they may extend a transitional element between the building and the sidewalk, street or parking lot, but more importantly, a shade structure can create a comfortable environment where people can mingle with food, drinks and a pleasant ambiance while feeling protected from the elements.

One of the easiest ways to offer your guests the pleasure of an open-air dining experience is to add some charming patio umbrellas. When you personalize and imprint your brand on these patio umbrellas, they can accentuate and make your restaurant’s design and style remarkable to passers-by while providing your customers with shelter from intense sunlight, rain, and wind.

Vitally, adding shade structures can increase your restaurant’s usable space and your revenues. Not only can outdoor seating attract more customers, but a shade structure can greatly increase availability for customer seating making highly-usable outdoor options for patio, balcony, deck, and rooftop areas, often year-round in more temperate climates.

In fact, recent studies indicate that providing outdoor seating options can easily increase revenues by thirty percent or more.

Additionally, outdoor seating provides many opportunities for flexibility in seating arrangements. Even smaller spaces that are sheltered can provide intimate places for customers to relax, visit, and drink as they wait for their table.

Whether the space you’re looking to shade is large, small or uniquely shaped, there are great solutions to fit any outdoor space and enhance your restaurant’s curb appeal.
