04 Jan Is it Time to Renovate your Hotel Restaurant?
When people look at booking a hotel, they consider several amenities the places offer. Many different types of travelers prefer to stay at hotels with appealing on-site restaurants for the experience and convenience.
Remodeling your in-house restaurant may not be a priority, but it could bring in additional revenue and customers if given the consideration. Taking the time to make your hotel restaurant stand out can increase profits. According to a recent study, restaurants that had recently undergone a renovation had seen a 10%-20% increase in their sales.
So what is the current status of your in-house restaurant? Does it appear to be a little outdated compared with competitors? Does it have customers excited to visit/come back? All of these questions can be tied to one single overarching question: is it time to renovate your hotel restaurant? Below we will discuss critical signs that indicate your restaurant is due for a renovation or an upgrade.
Are There Any Critical Issues?
Don’t let any key issues turn away your guests from visiting your on-site restaurant or potentially booking a stay. Determine all critical matters like leaks, insufficient seating, inadequate lighting, kitchen inconsistencies, or no good viewing windows. If any of these problems exist, you should consider fixing these issues as soon as you can. Once you do, you’ll be surprised at the benefits it brings you and your guests.
Is your In-House Restaurant in Style?
No on-site restaurant decor is a cookie-cutter model for another restaurant’s decor. Analyze what is currently trending within your area’s market, and see if your restaurant checks similar points. Most travelers are fascinated by hotels with restaurants customized to the city they are visiting. If your restaurant demonstrates a similar style to the city you are in, chances are you are attracting customers who are excited to experience that city. Upgrading your in-house restaurant’s style can help differentiate your hotel from your competitors as well.
When was the Last Time you Renovated your On-Site Restaurant?
When was your last renovation? If your previous restaurant renovation was years ago, you might be due for more than an upgrade. Styles and trends are constantly changing, so it is essential to stay on top of upgrading your decor or remodeling your restaurant to fit your guests’ expectations. Elevate your restaurant’s style to give your customers a worthwhile experience. This can include differentiating your decor, creating experiential dining areas, or using eye-catching decor/custom builds. A quality on-site restaurant can help your hotel increase your customers’ satisfaction and profitability.
