Adding a patio space to your restaurant can often be exactly what is needed to create a completely unforgettable experience and make your establishment the talk of the town. However, before you start work on your restaurant patio area, take a look at this simple guide to all the design and planning elements you need to consider to help you make your patio successful.
Before you even get to planning the patio, check all municipal, state and/or provincial and federal regulations regarding the new structure you hope to build. There may be one or more permits that you need to acquire before moving forward. Aside from the structure itself, there are some other regulatory issues to consider, for instance:
Your local authority and local architect will be able to provide you with all the necessary information.
The following should be taken into consideration:
Think about what suits your restaurant’s brand, your clientele as well as your business objectives – then get creative.
You may decide to go with a simple awning, but investing in a year round enclosure would perhaps stand you in better stead in the long run.
Seating, lighting, plants, heaters – you can go wild with all of the layout elements. The key is to keep the look and feel in line with your restaurant interior, while also extending it, adding something extra. Let your patio be a new attraction in its own right and not just an extension of your interior.
