It depends what type of business you are running. If, for argument’s sake, you are running a bistro or coffee shop, for café society or sidewalk effect, you may have an artistically decorated chalkboard close to your entrance door outside, displaying your specials for the day. Those passersby who usually appeal for such ambience will probably notice and be drawn to the romantic allure and make a point of stepping inside.
But not everyone is likely to get this picture, and you can hardly fault them for that. Also, you need your business to thrive and you need to fill those tables. Which is why many small bistros and restaurants stay open later in the evening. It is not so much to cater for dinners (which should be enjoyed earlier in any case) but more to try and make up for lost revenue incurred during the day. The fresh food needs to be used.
Tomorrow, those ingredients will be of little value. But as a nighttime venue, you can attract notice and get feet walking through your front door. You can make the message clear, but not too loud, with led outdoor message boards. But why use LED lighting in particular? Well, there are a number of good reasons for this and there are many places you can visit to learn more about the benefits of utilizing LED lighting displays and fixtures and fittings.
Speaking of which; while table candles are traditional and appealing to customers, you could also utilize LED lamps in your establishment. Like your outdoor display boards, they will not be taking up much of your utility bill and will therefore not be eating into your precious budget.
