Americans love eating out be it fast food from a local hamburger joint to a four-star restaurant dressed to the “nines”.
It can be as a group or solo, to celebrate a victory or console yourself over a loss, a place to treat Mom & Dad, and a way to charm a prospective romantic partner or business customer.
What do we look for when we dine out? The first thing is, obviously, the food. A home oven cannot duplicate the taste of a pizza baked to perfection in a commercial brick oven at 700° F, a temperature your oven can’t reach. The next thing diners want is good service, a smiling pleasant waitperson who is prompt and knows the menu. Servers like that are an asset to any restaurant. The third thing people want in a dining establishment is ambiance to create that happy mood while the meal is consumed. What is the driving factor for good ambiance? The answer is the proper air temperature and humidity. And what controls it? The AC system, of course. We have all experienced being seated too close to an AC vent that chills to the bone or too far from one where beads of sweat develop on our brow. Restaurants all face a challenge in that their kitchens produce lots of heat and this can affect the dining area temperature. Another challenge they face is that their AC demands change over a day depending on the outside temperature and the number of people inside enjoying their meal. The focus of a restaurant owner needs to be on providing good food and good service and let a professional AC company help create that perfect ambiance.
