Running a restaurant business requires a huge investment of both money and time. While it seems that a new bistro or gastropub is popping up in every neighbourhood with regularity, you can stand out from the competition with a few cosmetic (and kitchen) updates. An aesthetically pleasing restaurant will keep your clientele and captivate new customers.
A well-planned and executed remodelling project can help revive business. Although it might be a daunting undertaking, the benefits can be immediate and long-term. With an updated look and more efficient food service, you can entice new diners, increasing sales and revenue.
Impress Customers with Restaurant Remodelling
1. Consider Customer Feedback – As you begin planning changes to the design, listen to what existing customers have to say. Checking your website’s comments section and other online reviews can provide some clues. You can also conduct a survey on how to improve the design. (For instance, your clientele may be clamoring for updated washrooms or functioning fixtures.)
2. Focus on Comfort – Keep customers comfortable while enjoying their meals. While some lighting elements may seem attractive, if they’re too dark (or too blinding) they may drive away your customer base. If the seating is too hard or too soft, diners may have difficulty enjoying themselves.
3. Check Your Demographics – Know your customer demographics. Before installing flat screen TVs to show the hockey game, make sure that’s the kind of crowd you draw. If you’re thinking of choosing an ultra-modern design, consider whether that option might drive away an older crowd.
The greatest benefit of remodelling and renovating a restaurant is increased customer satisfaction. Renovating your kitchen allows chefs to more efficiently prepare dishes and store supplies, and that can only improve staff morale.
