Boost your covers & revenue whilst keeping safe this Christmas
As interior project specialists, we know that hospitality owners want to maximise their covers over the Christmas Season. However, you’re faced with the need to balance the health needs of your customers and staff with trying to service as many customers as possible.
So how can you achieve all these goals this festive season?
Well, we’ve been faced with the same dilemma in our latest restaurant and café fitouts in Sydney. So why not take a leaf out of our book and leverage our expertise?
Here are our top three tips for boosting your covers and revenue, whilst keeping everyone healthy and safe this holiday season.
1. Optimise seating arrangements
Given the ongoing need for social distancing, you need to think of ways to expand your dining options. So is there space in a rear garden, roof top or sidewalk for diners? Is there space inside that isn’t utilised efficiently? Can you install smaller and more slimline tables and chairs that allow for social distancing but still keep the covers high? Our recent restaurant and café fitouts in Sydney have used at least one of these strategies to great effect.
2. Increase hygiene & cleanliness
Rundown and worn out furniture and fittings not only discourages customers, but also promotes the impression that you might be as lax with your hygiene standards.
The easiest way to turn this around and give your customers confidence in your hygiene is to refurbish with new furniture and fittings, making sure they are quickly and easily cleanable. As interior project specialists, we have recently started using more timber elements in our client’s makeovers, because it’s less of a problem with the COVID virus than other materials.
3. Encourage bookings when it’s quiet
Every café and restaurant has quiet periods during the week, so why not offer two for the price of one or free deserts during these times? Many families and couples look for these type of offers, particularly around the festive season. It’s a great way to increase bookings and revenue at times that don’t normally lead to many covers.
Liteco Projects are the leading interior project specialists for restaurant and café fitouts in – call us to find out more.
With Sydney now focussing on living with COVID, it’s time for life to return to normal.
This normality, however, doesn’t guarantee the return of customers to your café nor the numbers needed to achieve your bottom line. So what can you do to give your café a competitive edge?
This is where café fitouts can make a huge difference to your revenue. That’s because you can leverage the psychology of colour to influence the way customers interact with your business.
Using colour psychology in café fitouts
Along with location, café fitouts have a huge impact on the success of a business, so it’s no surprise that colour is such a big factor. In fact, colour is one of the most affordable ways to change the ambiance of a café and clever business owners use the psychology of colour to subtly influence their customers.
Do you want to increase your turnover rate? There’s a colour for that. Want customers to relax, linger and spend more money? There’s a colour for that. Want to promote a healthy menu? There’s a colour for that!
Here’s a few colour palettes that are already being used in café fitouts to boost revenue in post-lockdown Sydney.
Red & Yellow:
These colours elevate the heart rate and blood pressure and get people to move! So if you want to increase turnover in your café and there’s a high footfall in your area, introducing elements of red and yellow will do the trick.
Green & Brown:
For cafes with a dining area, green and brown colours are great for encouraging customers to sit and relax, chat and linger.
They are also perfect for promoting healthy, fresh food, so if that’s your menu, then consider adding elements of these colours during your next café fitout.
Blue & Purple:
These are tricky colours for cafes, because they tend to make you thirsty, rather than hungry. However, blue and purple are ideal for take-away coffee shops who focus on the quality of their coffee, rather than on providing food.
At Liteco Projects, we use colour psychology to maximise the benefits of café fitouts for our Sydney clients.
If you are hoping to reopen your restaurant soon, it might be wise to speak to an interior projects specialist about a new and updated hospitality fitout.
That’s because COVID is highly transmissible, particularly in enclosed spaces, and is likely to be a legitimate concern to both your staff and customers.
At Liteco, we know exactly what needs to be done to help make your restaurant as safe as possible in a post COVID world. So given that we need to live with the virus for the foreseeable future, here are a few of the strategies you should consider for your updated hospitality fitout.
1. CHECK RESTRICTIONS
Check your state or territory’s COVID restrictions for the maximum number of customers allowed in your restaurant at one time.
2. RETHINK THE FLOOR PLAN
Redesign the floor so that it can accommodate social distancing between tables and allow customers to safely walk through the restaurant to the bar, toilets, and so on.
3. GET CREATIVE WITH HANDLING
Reduce transmission rates by using disposable paper menus, chalk boards or digital menus (the latter can be accessed using a QR code on each table).
4. ENCOURAGE PRE-ORDERS
Encourage people to pre-order before arriving at the restaurant to reduce the amount of time they are in an enclosed space.
5. CREATE OUTDOOR SPACES
Maximise any outdoor spaces to accommodate al fresco dining and install outdoor heaters if necessary.
6. REWORK FURNISHINGS
Replace furnishings and surfaces that are time consuming to clean with low-maintenance options that can be quickly sanitised and disinfected.
During your hospitality fitout, however, you need to ensure that the decor and ambiance of your restaurant are not jeopardised. That’s because reducing the number of tables and seats, combined with installing furnishings and surfaces that can be easily sanitised may give your restaurant a slightly clinical appearance. It takes a highly skilled team of interior projects specialists to balance these different aspects and create a design that still represents your brand, appeals to your customers and keeps everyone safe.
With the rising cost of commercial real estate, office refurbishments in the post COVID world will help operators scale back their requirements and boost employee confidence in one fail swoop.
That’s because with the continuation of remote working, flexi spaces will become more popular with operators, reducing the costs of leases and office fitouts.
Employees will also be happier with their work-life balance, spending a few days working at home and a few days using the flexi spaces in their place of employment.
Here are three more refurbishments that will help keep your employees safe and comfortable in the office, post COVID.
Office refurbishments will include separated workstations
Open plan work spaces have never really been popular with employees, but can be adapted, post COVID, to create more separation and privacy.
New office refurbishments might involve installing privacy booths so that employees can take phone calls without disrupting their colleagues.
Refurbishments can also involve installing panels between socially distanced workstations creating a physical separation, promoting a healthier environment even with a fully vaccinated workforce.
Hygiene & cleanliness as a prime factor in office fitouts
COVID has made us all more aware of hygiene in the workplace, so expect office fitouts to include more options for hand washing, as well as soft furnishings and flooring that can withstand a high level of cleaning. Air conditioning will also be a big focus with the installation of UV light air purifiers gaining more momentum.
High-tech refurbishments promote a contactless office
Social distancing and hand washing can be taken up a level by including aspects of a contactless office in your refurbishments.
This design strategy focuses on reducing the number of surfaces, appliances and equipment that employees need to touch.
For example, how many people touch the elevator buttons in your building? What about the kettle, fridge and other appliances in the lunch room? The printer, fax or scanner? Voice activation or smartphone apps can be used to activate an amazing array of functions in the workspace, reducing contact and making communal areas safer.
