Shade Benefits in Restaurants

‘Subway’, like many restaurants, experiences undesirable results from heavy sun exposure caused by floor to ceiling windows.¬† The employees behind the counter are faced with the rays of the day’s sunlight pouring in; causing several problems.

First, employees must deal with inability to see both their customer and their cash register clearly. Second, employees already must cope with stuffy temperatures from their ovens. The added heat from the wall of windows in the front can prove unbearable for many employees. Also suffering from discomfort, are the customers who try to sit in vicinity of the windows. With hot tables, chairs, and air as a result of the sun’s beating rays, customer’s may choose not to visit a Subway for afternoon lunch; choosing instead a cool shaded restaurant where they can comfortably enjoy their meal. Halcyon Shades have eliminated these problems increasing the¬†profitability of the restaurants by ensuring the¬†customers visit and stay longer.
