Is an all-seasons patio worth the investment for restaurant owners?

Phantom Screens / December 16, 2019

As a restaurant owner, the decision to invest in an all-seasons patio depends on more than just initial cost and space. Ultimately, getting the most return on your investment depends on how much revenue the expansion of your dining room will bring. It sounds like a large undertaking, but you may be surprised by how feasible investing in an outdoor space can be. 

Benefits of an all seasons patio

More seating is the biggest draw of having an all seasons patio. Even a few additional seats can result in extra profit, Contract Furnishings found. They estimated that if a restaurant kept their 24-seat patio open an additional 15 days in a season, they could gain an additional $60,000. 

Imagine the possible return of keeping your patio open year-round. Additionally, Toast identified that restaurants with flexible outdoor spaces can benefit from different menu offerings, being pet-friendly and added space for branding, which can help attract new diners. 

Clearly, all-seasons patios can be solid investments for restaurant owners, and contrary to prior belief, they are not difficult to construct.
