Today's competitive restaurant market means consumers want more than just a quick bite to eat. The atmosphere you can create is just as important as the food and drink you serve. Solar window film can enhance your restaurant in a subtle yet tangible way.
The outlook is promising for our thriving restaurants and cafés here in Atlantic Canada. Industry reports suggest that in 2023, food service sales will surpass their pre-pandemic levels. But with people willing to spend to enjoy a meal with loved ones, is your restaurant ready to deliver an exceptional experience?
Benefits of solar window film for restaurant owners
Today, we’re looking at how cost-effective solar window film can transform your customer space. Some benefits are enhanced depending on the season, while there are also plenty of year-round benefits for your business.
- Moderate the temperature. Atlantic Canada has struggled with some extreme weather over the last few years. Customers gravitate towards window seats, yet these are most likely to suffer from temperature swings. Solar film can moderate temperatures in your restaurant, reducing the amount of air conditioning or heating you need to run to achieve the same effect. Bonus benefit: You can highlight your usage of solar film as one of the steps your restaurant is taking to reduce its carbon footprint.
- Create a lighter, less glare-filled atmosphere. Your customers will have an improved experience when looking out the window. Solar window film will help you create a lighter atmosphere without the need for costly new glass. By diminishing the sun's intense glare, solar window film improves interior comfort, preventing eye strain and excessive light pollution.
- Keep your restaurant looking its best. We’re sure you have noticed the damaging effects of sunlight on your soft furnishing, artwork, tabletops and even menus. Direct rays of the sun, even through glass, can cause dramatic fading, making your restaurant setting look less cared for than it is. Solar film drastically reduces the level of UV that can penetrate your establishment, keeping your restaurant looking pristine for longer.
- Protect your staff’s skin. Your employees will love the more moderate temperatures, but they will also benefit in a less visible way. The same UV damage that occurs to your furnishings also affects our skin. Solar window film is like applying sun cream to your restaurant, reducing the skin damage for your staff.
