Valentine’s Day is coming up! When was the last time you showed your commercial awning some love? If you go out on Valentine’s Day, look around and take notice of just how many businesses utilize the power of commercial awnings. In fact, take notice of how many people seem to be congregating under them outside of restaurants with busy wait times.
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular nights to dine out each year, and since it falls on a weekend this year you’d better believe that wait times for your table are going to skyrocket! If the lobby is full and there is rain or inclement weather, a commercial awning can make all the difference in your experience. Let Carroll Awning fill you in on some tips to show the commercial awning at your restaurant some TLC this weekend.
Clean Your Awning
Everyone wants to look their best on Valentine’s Day – your commercial awning is no exception! If you notice that there is a buildup of dirt, dust, or debris on your awning – do your best to clear it as soon as possible. Be sure not to clear debris using anything sharp that may compromise the fabric of the awning. Try to keep in mind even if your awning is unique, functional and beautiful – your establishment is going to seem a lot less appetizing if your awning is covered in bird droppings. Clean it up so your guests love it as much as you do!
Decorate Your Awning
It can be really fun and effective to seasonally decorate your commercial awning. There are several different ways to decorate your awning this winter. Outdo your competitors! Decorating your awning can draw more attention to your establishment for Valentine’s Day and generate more business. Use lights to decorate your awning! Flashing, colored, hanging – whatever you prefer. We recommend using lightweight bulbs that will not add too much excess weight to your awning. You can also spice things up with a Valentine’s Day themed wreath with heart accents or hang heart-related decorations from the awning to show your holiday spirit.
