Benefits Pergolas for restaurants | Sunair Awnings

Cheap Umbrellas can be more expensive than a Pergola® Awning from Sunair. Here‘s why…

This restaurant patio originally had multiple umbrellas set up for the comfort of the patrons.  They work all right on sunny days with no rain or wind.  On inclement weather days, with wind and/or rain the restaurant was forced to close the patio down without income!  The cheap umbrellas became quite expensive.

The solution; Owners installed a large wall mounted Pergola® Awning from Sunair® Awnings & Solar Screens. It is fully retractable at the touch of a button. If the sun is too strong, or it starts to rain, the awning is extended in seconds to maintain a comfortable seating area for the patrons. In addition, the restaurant can continue to serve patrons and isn’t forced to shut down the patio. Revenue is not lost. Side Screens were added, enclosing the patio, which extends the serving season, and generating extra revenue in the fall and early spring.

Sunair Pergola Awnings are a great way for restaurants to keep patrons at a physical and social distance.  Visitors will want tyo be seated outside while being protexcted from the sun and rain.  Restaurants will need to add additional space on the outside patios for added space and social distancing as a result of Covid 19.
