Though there are areas in the world that remain sunny throughout the year, some places are just getting ready for the warmer weather. This means it is time to welcome back outdoor dining! Last year changed a lot of things, especially for the foodservice industry. One silver lining was the addition of outdoor dining. Many businesses that had not previously offered the option, found this as a way to not only keep afloat during the pandemic, but to reimagine their plans for the future.
So here we are, Spring of 2021 and the idea of rebirth and growth could not possibly mean more than it does right now. Now is the time for owners and operators to take what they have learned and use it continue sprouting, and regaining any ground they may have loss. The future is bright and full of sunshine, and that’s the message you should be sending to your guests. Nothing conveys that message more than outdoor dining.
Even when restaurants and bars return to full capacity, you will want to take advantage of the outdoors. Additional seating in the open, fresh air has become a priority amongst diners and that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon. Honestly, it isn’t a bad problem to have. An increase in seating leads to an increase in foot traffic, which means a rise in profits.
To keep up with your growing customer base you will need to make sure your kitchen is armed with the best equipment for the job. Ventless kitchen equipment like the AutoFry® or the MultiChef XL™ is ideal for preparing delicious food, safely and efficiently, without busting your budget. No hoods? No Vents? No Problem! Ventless means there is no need to put in a hood system, so owners save on the high costs of installation and service. All you have to do is plug in and you’re ready to go.
As the days get warmer and warmer, don’t let your business miss out on any opportunities to increase your profits. Together the combination of outdoor dining and ventless equipment can make any establishment a force to be reckoned with!
