One of the great things about UK business is the variety. More people are opening up new small businesses all the time, and there are so many options for people wanting to try their hand at being their own boss. For people opening a business, few things are as important as making your customers happy. A big part of this is ensuring your business interior and exterior looking friendly, welcoming and pleasant. This is even more important if you have a business like a restaurant, where your ambience is your USP. Have you thought about commercial umbrellas and the benefits they could have for your business?
Commercial umbrellas – improving your business atmosphere
Commercial umbrellas can be brilliant for any business with outdoor space, no matter how large or small the space might be. If you want to make it as pleasant as possible, it needs to be adaptable to all weather conditions. This will give you the flexibility you need to keep your customers happy all year round – your business shouldn’t just be seasonal.
Commercial umbrellas can really help you to do this effectively. They are larger than standard umbrellas and awnings, covering a larger surface area so that more of your customers can use them at once. They will also be stronger so they won’t blow over in wind. Some will be more like a permanent structure, whereas others can be put down at night to help protect them.
Here are some of the places you might use a commercial umbrella:
- In a courtyard or garden
- A pub garden
- Beside a swimming pool
- In a square outside a restaurant
- On a patio or veranda
- Next to a building, helping to provide shade inside as well
If you can make sure your business is a pleasant place to spend time, then this will help improve the number of customers and will help to keep customers coming back as well. You also have the added bonus of your business looking attractive from the outside. When people walk past, they will see that your pub, restaurant, cafe or hotel is set up attractively and is somewhere they might like to spend time. This will help it to stay in their minds and they are more likely to come back again.
Weather is a major problem for businesses that have outside spaces, and commercial umbrellas can really help you to overcome your difficulties. They will be bigger than standard umbrellas, offering more protection from rain and wind. They are also great for sun safety, providing shade for your customers so they don’t get sunburnt. This is an important consideration for people, and they are more likely to visit a restaurant where they will have some shade from the sun when they need it.
The advertising benefits
You can brand your commercial umbrellas, making sure you reinforce your brand name to people when they are spending time in your establishment or passing by on the street. You can also use the names of big brands that you sell, helping to show you are a serious, high-quality business with good products.
