Spring has officially arrived! After bracing yet another difficult winter, spring brings plenty of excitement to people and restaurants for the return of warmer weather and eating outdoors. Dealing with the seasons is second nature in the restaurant field. Yet, eateries that know how to capitalize on each season are the ones who draw in new customers and keep them wanting more. Spring is when restaurants start to see business pick back up, and it is important to the success of your company and bottom line to be ready. Have you updated the menu? Is your patio ready? Read on for a few tips to prepare your restaurant for spring!
Spring Cleaning Happens First
A clean restaurant is a top priority for customers when it comes to dining in. especially in the post-pandemic world, cleanliness has never been more critical. This means you have to take spring cleaning to the next level. You can attract guests to your restaurant if you post publicly onto your social media all your cleaning methods. Consider uploading a video of your staff sanitizing the dining room and kitchen before service to keep customers and staff safe. If your indoor dining area was closed for a long period, cleaning and sanitizing with cleaning supplies is even more important before reopening. Prepare the entire restaurant by setting up various sanitation stations and ensure that your cleaning efforts are all ongoing during business hours.
Prepare for the Patio Season
Restaurants usually see an increase in business around the warmer months as it is more appealing for customers to sit outside. This means it’s time to get that patio ready! Guests love to indulge outdoors, and post-pandemic, this is even more appealing since open-air environments allow them to feel safer. Outdoor dining has always been a lifeline for restaurants, especially during COVID, and though it was harder to maintain during the winter, spring has brought a new sense of hope. This doesn’t mean to get rid of all your patio heaters just yet, but you have to think of what you’ll need for sunny days ahead. Umbrellas are an excellent idea to have, as are patio awnings. The best restaurant patios are equipped with tools to handle any last-minute weather problems.
