As a restaurant owner, you will likely get to know which times and days are busier than others. If your restaurant is the host of parties and events, this schedule may be somewhat more unpredictable. One of the things that you can predict are issues with the parking if you have a lot of customers going in and out of the lot at the same time. To combat any possible problem, your restaurant can introduce a valet parking only situation. Here are some ways that it will benefit your business.
Customers will never drive away frustrated
If a customer is spending a long time looking for a parking space, they may finally get turned off from the situation and resolve to go somewhere else that has parking available. Therefore, the loss of business can happen if your parking is rather small or if you tend to get large crowds. By pulling up and having a valet park their car, the person is then able to get in and out of their vehicle without having to tolerate waiting for a parking space. This can keep them at your storefront and happy.
Less accidents and liability
Car accidents in parking lots can happen when one or more drivers is not paying attention. It is also typical for people who are backing out of parking spaces and those who are driving straight through the row to collide if someone does not see the other. Though you may have signs posted releasing you from liability, people can and may still try to sue you for having an dangerous parking situation. If you have valet parking, only your valet drivers will be going through, lessening accidents or stopping them completely.
No parking lot loitering
Depending on where you are located, it can be typical for people to loiter in parking lots either before or after meals. This can also attract those who may be interested in committing crimes such as theft or grand theft auto. By having a valet staff parking cars, there is no one loitering around, causing possible mischief. Anyone who is loitering in the parking lot can be removed immediately, as only valets should have access. A safe restaurant that provides an extra layer of services will make your restaurant one of the most convenient eateries in town. This, along with a menu expansion and well decorated venue may be able to increase your restaurant star level.
