Creating a Profitable Patio with a Pergola

outdoor winter dining

Commercial Pergolas / February 22, 2018

Warmer weather is coming, which brings Denverites out to get their vitamin E on. Is your restaurant, community center, or club missing the opportunity of potential patrons? It’s faster and easier than you think to add patron space and boost profits with a patio bar or dining space.


You’re Just 5 Steps Away from a Profitable Commercial Patio Space

  1. Legal Smeagal
    Check with the local city government regarding necessary paperwork and permitting for the addition of outdoor seating space for dining. Researching before designing your patio ensures you won’t have to pay fines – or worse – reinvent your outdoor space pursuant to city laws and rules later.
  2. Space Scrutinization
    Measure available space carefully, considering furniture additions and mocking-up a layout with tape or chalk. Ensure guests and staff won’t be cramped or in the paths of doors and server trays. If adding an outdoor cooking area or patio bar, consider how this will impact available seating.outdoor winter dining
  3. Shelter Snafus
    Outdoor dining space can turn into a detriment in inclement weather, sending patrons scurrying and leaving you under or over staffed. Luckily, with the flexibility of Arcadia adjustable aluminum pergolas, your weather worries will be a thing of the past. Ensure customer comfort and reduce workload with an adjustable outdoor shelter addition. Open up to allow full sun, dial-in just the right amount of shade, and provide leak-free precipitation protection at the touch of a button or on-demand with integrated weather sensing, app-driven technology.
  4. Amenity Additions
    In addition to seating space and weather protection, consider the capacity for your outdoor space to encompass…

    • A Bar Addition
      Guests enjoy watching drinks being made. Fun and functional, an outside bar addition can draw interest and revenue to your business – even simple mobile/portable units. Special promotional deals for patio-only diners creates an exclusive feel.
    • Cooking Fare
      Customers love watching food preparation, especially on the BBQ grill or within outdoor pizza ovens. These additions can also enhance the ambiance of your outdoor dining space.profitable patio
    • Fireplaces or Gas-Powered Fire Pit Tables
      The unmatched ambiance of easy-care gas fireplaces or fire pit tables draws customers in to a warm, cozy setting.
    • Outdoor Televisions
      Broadcast popular sports venues, providing a relaxing space for customers to grab a beverage and a snack while enjoying the game.
    • Fans & Heaters
      Ceiling fans uphold comfort in summer months, while patio heaters offer extended service into chillier seasons.
    • Motorized Screens & Curtains
      Motorized screens offer additional shading flexibility, repelling pests. Integrating outdoor curtains allows for privacy and space defining for meetings/parties.
  5. Furniture & Flair
    Capture the ambiance of your commercial space with a rustic wooden picnic table and benches, charming bistro sets, or modern, sofa-style booths. Design your pergola to match, choosing from an array of custom powder-coating colors, faux-wood wrap, decorative trim, and architectural columns. Eye-catching décor, lighting and amenities, will draw attention to your space, creating a buzz, while fencing, dividers, or planters with brightly colored foliage provide privacy and security.
