“I will never have another patio at my restaurant!”
These are the strong words a recent client once used. He promised himself he would never experience the frustrations of a patio again. That was until we met at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago.
At that time, he was building a new restaurant using a proven concept, and a patio was certainly not part of his plans. He noted his patio frustrations: every day was a gamble with the weather, he never knew how much staff he would need, people would tie their experience with windy weather on the patio to their dining experience at his restaurant.
Too many times he saw reviews of his restaurant online: “no room inside so had to sit on the patio and it was too hot,” “felt like a wind tunnel on the patio,” “beautiful patio and great food…. prior to the rain.”
