One of the ways in which you can improve your restaurant customers’ dining experiences is by tweaking its ambience. In this context, ambience is broadly defined as the restaurant’s ‘feel’. Through ambience, you can make a restaurant to have a sophisticated, classy feel. Or through ambience, you can make a restaurant to have a simple, undemanding feel. Through ambience, you can make your restaurant come across as the sort of place where one is expected to pop in, eat fast and get out. Alternatively, through ambience, you can make your restaurant come across as the sort of place where one is expected to relax as his food is prepared — you know, the sort of place where things are done at a leisurely pace.
If you use ambience in the right manner, you can end up with a situation where the customers to your restaurant would be (more than) willing to pay premium prices for their meals. Take, for instance, a situation where, through ambience, you are able to give your restaurant a sophisticated, classy feel. People will tend to be more than willing to pay top dollar to dine at such an establishment: even if the food is of the same quality as what is offered elsewhere.
The three main ways in which you can tweak your restaurant’s ambience include:
- Through judicious use of paint
- Through a good selection of furniture
- Through the use of accessories such as wall paintings, sculptures and so on
Whatever changes you make to your restaurant, the most important thing is to undertake a survey, to see how well the customers are receiving the changes. This you can do by way of simply talking to the customers and trying to see how receptive they are to the changes. Or you can opt to call the customers on phone, and try to get feedback from them that way. The latter approach, of using the phone to collect feedback from your restaurant’s customers, isn’t as expensive as you may fear initially. If you opt to use that approach to collect customers’ feedback, and you are a Metro PCS subscriber, chances are that you won’t see a noticeable change in your monthly metro pcs bill. Of course, that depends on the choices you will have made, with regard to your phone plan, at the my metropcs bill payments portal. But it shouldn’t be too expensive, especially if you opt to survey just a few customers (as a sample), to get an idea as to what the rest of the customers feel. All said and done, tweaking the ambience is one of the most straightforward ways to get people to pay premium rates for dining experiences.
