Outdoor dining continues to grow in popularity all across the country as diners enjoy relaxing in a casual, outdoor atmosphere. For restaurateurs, capitalizing on this trend gives them a cost effective means of not only attracting new patrons, but also adding seating without the hassle and expense of brick and mortar construction.
Here in New England, our outdoor dining season is shorter than that of more temperate regions and the summer sun and spring rains can also limit the usability of outdoor dining areas. The addition of a patio enclosure can help increase the number of days your outdoor space can be used and, with the addition of an overhead awning or canopy, fans, heaters and even TV screens, your outdoor space takes on the ambience of a truly ‘finished’ room.
A well designed patio enclosure offers protection from the elements as well as providing privacy for your diners. Enclosures featuring roll-up or removable panels offer the flexibility to create a more open feel when the weather calls for it. The variety of materials available today allow for maximum flexibility in the design and size of these enclosures making them a viable option for nearly any establishment and space.
