It is a proven fact that most existing customers relate to a change the minute they step into your restaurant. Nobody wants to sit in a booth with a ripped cushion or in a chair that wobbles. Restaurant furniture is similar to a car, over time it is going to show wear and tear. Restauranteurs have tried little tricks such as to cover a worn table with a linen cloth, which over time can be more costly than just investing in a new table. Another thing that is notorious by restaurant owners and staff members is to put wedges under tables to try to keep wobbling to a minimum. Besides these common problems, it is also important to consider if your dining room is set up properly with optimum seating. This may include enough two (2) top tables, as any restaurant owner will tell you they hate to see a four (4) top table that is only occupied by two people.
Remember the first impression when someone walks into your restaurant is going to be a lasting impression – and it’s important to make that impression count.
If you are doing to do a remodel, one of the many things to consider is what is on trend or what could be in style for years to come. What do your customers want? Listen to your customers as there is nothing wrong to ask them if there is something they would like to see or if the seating is comfortable, do they like certain aspects of the décor, etc.
Another important variable is to decide it makes sense to close your restaurant during renovations or if you can make improvements while staying open for business.
