How Do Plants Attract More Customers?
With the COVID-19 quarantine in effect, some people haven’t been comfortable enough to dine at restaurants. Owners have put up barriers and walls to make customers feel safe, however, these measures have also given restaurants unpleasant environments. Customers need inviting and joyful atmospheres to escape the daily sceneries of their own homes. Plants can be an easy solution to that problem. A splash of green can instantly increase the aesthetic value of a space. People don’t just go to restaurants for the food, they go there for the ambiance as well. That is why giving customers that inviting atmosphere is vital to bringing them back.
Plants are also natural air purifiers, which gives customers a sense of ease knowing that a restaurant with many plants has cleaner air. Plants remove toxins and take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to produce oxygen, improving the air quality. They also help to reduce airborne dust levels, which reduces coughing. During these unprecedented times, we have to figure out ways to make customers feel safe so that they regain the confidence to dine at restaurants again. Here are the best plants that will provide confidence for your guests, cultivate atmosphere, and are easy to maintain:
Sansevieria, commonly known as “mother-in-laws tongue” or “snake plant”, is our favorite choice for restaurants because of its low-light tolerance. It is one of the hardiest indoor-plants and also one of the easiest to care for. It can instantly make any space look more upscale. Try grouping 4-5 plants together to use as natural room dividers!
Spider Plants, also known as Hen-and-Chickens, are extremely easy and exuberant indoor specimens. They’re pleasant to the eye and are easy to grow. These plants do well with bright light, but avoid putting them under direct sunlight as they might get scorched. Spider plants need water on a regular basis, so water them liberally.
If you want to give your restaurant a modern edge, then succulents may be the perfect choice for you! This plant family is so extensive, there is bound to be one that fits your style. From String of Pearl to Cacti, succulents come in all shapes and sizes. They love bright light and don’t need to be watered too often.
Edible plants in your restaurant are a two for one, since they can also be implemented into your dishes! Parsley is a great plant to have as it thrives in direct sunlight, so it a great choice for those bright areas in your space. Parsley needs to be watered 2 – 3 times a week. If parsley is parched, it will let you know by wilting. But don’t worry, as soon as you re-water, it will stand upright again!
Plants not only have the power to transform your restaurant into a lush, oasis destination, but they can also present your restaurant as more healthful, and therefore, instills confidence in new patrons. We hope that this blog has inspired you install live plants, if not better yet, a moss wall to brighten your restaurant’s atmosphere and attract more customers!
