The need

Browns Socialhouse is known for its upscale casual dining experience. However, a solution was needed to maximize the usability of the patio space year-round while adding customer comfort.

The solution

Phantom’s motorized screens were installed to extend patio life by creating a barrier from debris and inclement weather. Additionally, the vinyl screens help control temperature by retaining heat/cold and providing 90% UV block – ensuring guest comfort.

What makes this project special?

The restaurant’s 750 square foot patio area encompasses 12 tables, and the owner estimates that at capacity this dining space generates $2,000 – $3,000 per day of operation. An area that was once only available during the warmer months now provides over $300,000 in extra revenue a year.
