Awning Canopies / August 17, 2019 / Muriel Sargent
You would notice that cafes hotels restaurants and shops have a canopy or an awning installed. They are not just simply for aesthetic beauty or added charm. The reason behind this is business promotion. Canopies and other commercial awnings will usually have the name of the business written on the surface of the awning. Canopies would also have the colour of the business. You will even see company logos or graphics in them. If you want to promote a new product on your store you no longer have to worry about the high cost of advertising in magazines daily papers or television. You can easily have the product promotion printed on your awnings. People will remember seeing not just your attractive commercial awnings but also your business. You can have a greater chance of getting more people into your business.
For one thing awnings and commercial shade structures are all about making a first impression. Remember that long before a restaurant patron has taken their first bite of bread or sipped their first cocktail they ve already surveyed the exterior of the building. Does your restaurant fit the neighborhood? Does it stand out in a productive and meaningful manner? And is the restaurant s signage appropriate for the space? Failure to pass these basic tests may mean a loss of business - something no restaurant owner wants to see happen. Awnings and canopies are ideal ways to invite a positive dining experience. Awnings are both functional and promotional items. On one hand they protect patrons from the elements providing a measure of wind shield shade during sultry summer evenings and of course protection from rain and even snow.
When your awning provides shade this just means that the heat coming in to your shop or store is lessened. You no longer have to fully blast your air conditioner to arrive at an ideal temperature. If you are looking for a commercial awning that you can easily install and uninstall then the folding arm awning would be the perfect choice. There are different types of folding arm awnings ranging from manually controlled to automatic. They also come in different sizes colours and materials. Next to the food and drinks nothing is more important for a restaurant than its décor. From the right lighting to the choice of tablecloths everything about the dining experience must promote the establishment. One way to do that includes the addition of awnings or canopies.
