Canopies for Pubs, Hotels and Restaurants

Zenith have many years experience of selling and installing canopies in the licensed trade. The advent of the smoking ban has brought about a massive increase in pubs, hotels and restaurants re-marketing their businesses by providing stylish, attractive outdoor covered canopy area over patios and in gardens.

First hand experience

Adding a Canopy Structure

Ian Manners, one of Zenith’s Directors, has first hand knowledge of how successful a pub and restaurant can become by installing a canopy when he managed a pub and restaurant on the River Thames in Gloucestershire in the early 80’s. Ian saw the potential and benefits of installing a 6 metre x 12 metre canopy structure to his garden bar and within one month of installation it had paid for itself and brought a massive increase in revenue and profit between April and October in subsequent years. The fact he could also benefit by using it during winter months was an added bonus.
Experienced advice and helpful tips to create the perfect outdoor environment

Advice and Tips

  • Market your business with fixed canopy structures or gazebos to attract customers for that ‘Al Fresco’ eating and drinking experience.
  • Make your customers feel valued by providing them with robust canopies that do not move about in the wind.
  • Our research tells us that customers do not feel safe sitting under giant umbrellas that move about in the wind.
  • You are reducing your ability to operate outside if you have to close up giant umbrellas in windy conditions.
  • Our research tells us that customers like to eat and drink in the shade when they are sitting outside.
  • Our canopies can be used all the year round regardless of weather conditions.
  • Electric radiant heating and lighting is easy to fit to our structures.
  • Sliding soft PVC sidewalls with windows or roll-up doorways can easily be fitted and removed if required. Also Terrace screens can easily be fitted.
  • Maximise your profits by installing an awning, canopy or gazebo.
  • The price of our canopies compares favourably with giant umbrellas and provides you with maximum usage all year round.
  • Given the choice between enjoying a meal or drink under a stylish, robust canopy or in a tatty beer garden, which one will your customers choose?
  • Customers don’t want to feel penalised for sitting outside whether they smoke or not. Provide them with an attractive, robust canopy to sit under.
  • Canopies encourage customers to use a particular pub or restaurant over your competitor who doesn’t have them.
  • Target April – October as a main outdoor eating/drinking season. The ability to use a canopy from November to March is a bonus.
