How to Expand Your Winery or Country Restaurant’s Outdoor Area for All Seasons

Wineries and country restaurants are often nestled in scenic spots and for your guests, there are few things more relaxing than sitting outside in a shaded outdoor area, enjoying a delicious glass of wine or an al fresco dining experience. In fact, many guests feel the experience can make their food taste better and fresher. One of the easiest ways to offer your guests the pleasure of an open-air experience is to add some sheltered space. As an owner or manager, adding shade structures can increase your winery or country restaurant’s usable outdoor space and your revenues. In fact, recent studies indicate that providing outdoor seating options can easily increase revenues by thirty percent or more. Outdoor seating attracts more customers, and adding commercial umbrellas 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. 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. Commercial umbrellas also offer opportunities to increase brand recognition. When you personalize and imprint your brand on your patio umbrellas, they can accentuate awareness of your winery or country restaurant’s design and style, while providing your guests with shelter from intense sunlight, rain, and wind.
