Awning Canopies / July 27, 2019 / Shari Nelson
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.
Allocating funds to an awning canopy or cabana design project is a venture that will reap what it sows. In addition to providing current customers with an additional sun-shading feature cabanas canopies and awnings add attractive and eye-catching features to the property. These appealing structures offer an emotional and mental retreat for souls weary from the day-to-day shuffle and physical splendor for eyes tired of the same old neutral colored building. The numbers speak for themselves: Even in this time when popular opinion holds that vacations are on the decline the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported a 3.2 percent increase in travel and tourism spending during the second quarter of 2011 so hopefully the trend holds firm for the second quarter of 2012.
Furthermore domestic travel is expected to be on the rise so vacationers can enjoy the feel of a tropical island without going abroad. In order to succeed at selecting an appropriate canopy awning or cabana an experienced supplier registered with the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) is a necessity. Checking references will ease your mind. Choose a company that also provides maintenance services to promise the longevity of the product. Be sure to clear maintenance and warranty issues before construction begins. Both structure and form are vital here as a beautiful design as well as a sturdy and reliable one is essential. Hiring a reputable and experienced company provides the security that your vision combined with professional advice and architecture will be properly executed.
