First impressions are everything. When it comes to doing business, your company’s storefront is your first impression – your first chance to “wow” a customer, your first chance to get a casual shopper through the front door, and your first chance to promote your brand visually. The ability to stand out amongst your competition is what sets apart the successful brands from the average brands. So, what does it take to ensure that your brand is giving off the best first impression possible? Is there a way to transform that casual shopper into a paying customer? How can you make your commercial storefront comfortable and branded? The answer is in a beautiful, eye-catching storefront awning.

Store awnings are often overlooked as necessities rather than opportunities. Retailers who seek an edge in the marketplace, however, see storefront awnings as a major branding opportunity. These business owners not only understand the power of a strong visual, they recognize that a significant percentage of their revenue is generated from walk-in customers. With this in mind, it is essential to search for an on-brand, carefully-considered commercial awning. This type of display serves as an invitation to potential customers to come inside and spend money. While there are multitudes of benefits that come from branded storefront awnings, some of the most prominent are:

  1. Branding: incorporate your company’s name, logo, and color scheme to immediately provide your customers with an aesthetically pleasing entrance

  2. Protection: keep your commercial space shaded and protected from weather elements like sun and rain – door awnings do wonders to keep your customers comfortable

  3. Expansion: the right store awnings can add massive space to any location – a restaurant can quickly double its capacity with patio covers

  4. A Fresh Look: adding a great store awning can serve as a remodel to the overall look and feel of your commercial property, resulting in bringing back old customers and enticing new customers to take a look inside

Business owners are constantly in search of new, innovative ways to grow their client base and increase revenues. When tasked with renovating a commercial space in order to make it comfortable and well-branded, an awesome storefront awning is the obvious modern solution. Not only are store awnings visually appealing, they are a true investment in your company. In fact, if customers are not covered from the sun, rain or snow, the company faces the threat of a major loss of revenue. To learn more on how the right patio cover can increase your company’s revenues, check out our ROI calculator. From reducing utility bill costs from sun shading to preserving your building’s appearance, savvy business owners depend on commercial awnings.
