Throughout the winter months, hospitality businesses often experience peaks and troughs. Generally, there are fewer bookings through November, followed by a busy Christmas party and New Year season. After the New Year, things quieten down through January before picking up again for Valentines Day.
Some businesses just accept that these seasonal fluctuations happen. The savviest business owners look for ways to boost their offerings to bring more patrons through the door. By optimising your outdoor space with a tipi, your business will prosper in several ways.
Here are 4 reasons your hospitality business will benefit from tipis during the winter months:
Expand capacity at the busiest times
In the run-up to Christmas, you will be inundated with enquiries about availability for Christmas parties and family meals. Adding a large tipi can provide sheltered, warm space for lots more tables so you can accommodate more guests. The Big Hat Tipi can accommodate 72 seated people with its sides down. The space creates an exciting and unique venue for parties and meals. If you have a good amount of outdoor space, you have a golden opportunity to boost your revenue.
Offer a unique experience
Party organisers are always looking for a venue that offers a unique experience. Tipis provide a place to make memories and to have a great time. A tipi offers a unique type of venue for parties, and you can creatively decorate with lighting and other tasteful accessories to suit themed parties or black-tie events. With the social restrictions preventing any parties last year, many people will be making up for lost celebration time and will want to book an unforgettable venue.
The enormous, quirky structure of a tipi grabs the attention of people walking past your business and will also cause a stir on social media. Even our Baby Tipi makes a big impression and will have people talking about your new addition. Generate excitement and boost the number of booking enquiries you receive with a Baby Tipi.
Host winter events
As well as being able to offer more space for Christmas and New Year parties, another benefit of having a tipi is to enable you to host winter events such as Christmas markets, live music, food festivals and any other type of event that will draw more patrons to your business. You can adapt the tipis to have the sides up or down, offering more flexibility for different types of events and to work around the weather conditions.
There are several different tipi sizes to choose from, depending on how much outdoor space you have available to use. Some hospitality businesses have a creative formation of tipis in their grounds, allowing huge capacities for events. Many smaller businesses can double their table covers by using a tipi.
Following the significant business disruption experienced due to lockdowns, it is more important than ever to give your business a new lease of life and a tipi is an ideal solution. All our tipis are Made in Britain to meet the highest quality and safety standards, with training videos to show you how to easily assemble them.
A tipi is not just for Christmas! Tipis are a great addition to your hospitality venue all year round and are built to last which gives you years of increased capacity and many other benefits.
