5 Ways Commercial Awnings & Canopies Increase Profit

Many commercial establishments are missing one thing that keeps their clientele comfortable: retractable shade to enjoy the outdoors. Commercial Awnings and Canopies add welcome shade where needed and help increase your profit while doing so. From attracting customers to saving money on utility costs, here are five ways commercial awnings and canopies increase your profit.

Increase Customer Capacity
Adding an awning or canopy expands the usable space of your business. Restaurants can include additional tables and chairs outdoors, increasing the amount of people that can be served at a time. Country clubs can create an outdoor space to relax with friends, and gyms or studios can offer outdoor classes in the shade while indoor classes are in session. Being able to serve more customers at the same time brings in more revenue.

Save on Utility Costs
When adding shade outdoors, awnings and canopies also shade the wall they’re attached to, including any glass windows or doors. This keeps the interior cooler, since less direct sunlight is heating up the inside of the business. A cooler interior means the air conditioning doesn’t have to work as hard, so your energy costs will be lower.

Protect Outdoor & Indoor Furnishings
Bright sunlight causes outdoor furnishings to fade, discolor, or even weaken. When left outdoors throughout the summer, many items need to be replaced before the following year. This is also true for items exposed to bright light through windows. Although they will last longer than those kept outdoors, the indoor items are also susceptible to sun damage. An awning or canopy that casts shade on exterior or interior furnishings protects them from the damaging UV rays, so they won’t need to be replaced as often, keeping more money in your pocket.

Increased Customer Satisfaction
Customers that are comfortable and happier stay longer. The longer they stay, the more money they’ll spend at your business. Awnings and canopies will keep them cool and comfortable outdoors, and they’ll reduce the sun glare indoors. Shade products also create a relaxing ambiance, reminding people to slow down and enjoy the outdoors.

Improved Marketing & Visibility
Aristocrat Awnings and Canopies can be customized with your business name, logo, or other marketing message so customers can easily find you. Even without customization, awnings or canopies help your business stand out from others, and they attract attention. They will help you bring in more customers, increase business, and ultimately your profit.
