Summer has officially arrived and reservations for fresh air dining are stacking up. Have a successful season by surfing these quick tips!

Design & Layout

  • For brand recognition, make your outdoor theme a continuation of the interior environment
  • An optimal spot for dinner guests is one with the most direct western sun exposure
  • Bright colors attract bugs – opt for dark and neutral colors
  • Spice it up with trees and plants. Foliage absorbs heat to create a cooling effect
  • Consider providing a variety of seating options. Use tables at different heights or introduce a lounge area with couches
  • By spacing out furniture, guests can relax without feeling cramped

Tabletop & Furnishings


  • Brighten up the night with string lights or patio candles
  • A portable fire pit with seating will bring a cozy atmosphere to the patio and increase profits; they are eye catching and can be used year-round
  • Protect your visitors from the sun with the option of an umbrella
  • On cool nights, keep heaters close by for warmth
  • Keep mosquitos at bay and add to your ambience with citronella candles or torches
