As you a busy restaurant owner you have a lot going on. Staff to manage, customers to impress, competitors to keep ahead of, suppliers to deal with.
You probably don’t have much time for thinking about how a better outdoor dining could improve your business.
Lucky for you we’ve spent the past 17 years working directly with café and restaurant owners. Transforming unloved and underused spaces into revenue generating machines.
Taking dusty decks, damp courtyards, noisy street sides and bare patios and turning them into stylish tranquil spaces. The sort of environments that customers love and want to come back to.
Here are 6 ways a dining structure can help boost your profits and be a great asset for your business.
A customised dining structure can increase the number of tables you have working for you. Space you can consistently put to work in any weather. The more tables you have, the more opportunities for customers to enjoy your unique hospitality. Think about it. What do you currently earn per table on an average day?
What would happen if you could extend your capacity by 25 – 50% overnight (as we often do) with no added mortgage or leasing costs. What would that do to your business? You work hard to look after your customers. Do something to help yourself with this business tool.
Stop losing business to bad weather and improve the consistency of “bums on seats”. Can your current outdoor space be used 365 days per year? A quality dining structure keeps your customer’s comfortable no matter what is happening outside – even if it’s pelting down with rain, blowing a gale, or scorching hot. Now you can control the dining environment with overhead cover and a range of outdoor blinds and accessories.
It pays to look good! A quality Dining Structure has beautiful clean lines and improves the street appeal of your restaurant, providing an enticing environment to lure customers in and keep them coming back. Your potential customers have loads of choice out there and may be making their decision based on a snap judgment as they stroll down the street. Do yourself a favour and make the best possible first impression!

A crowd attracts a crowd. Nothing attracts customers like a crowd having a great time dining outside your place. People want to be where the actions happening. No one wants to be the first one into an empty restaurant! Think about all the times you have walked past a restaurant looking for a place with “more atmosphere”.
Get more use from your property payments and fixed overheads. We don’t need to tell you that property costs are expensive in Sydney. One of the big hidden benefits of a dining structure comes from getting more work through your existing facilities. You can extend your outdoor dining capacity without necessarily adding more kitchen equipment or wait staff. Helping you get more productivity from what you’re already paying for.
A comfortable place to linger and connect. You’ll probably be surprised that a dining structure roof is built from waterproof PVC fabric. Tensioned onsite for a clean smooth finish. People often assume it’s plastic or a solid roof. It’s far smarter than that. Fabric is a unique building material, its light, flexible, totally waterproof, and reflects the sun’s heat away, allowing only diffused light through.
This creates a special ambiance and atmosphere, cool in summer and pleasant in winter. You will notice that customers tend to linger in this environment to enjoy the tranquil surroundings. As you know, comfortable customers are more likely to stay a little longer and grab another drink or more to eat.
