Artificial wicker is based on a man-made fiber that is characterized by high flexibility and tear resistance. The fibers are dyed throughout. Thus, color changes over time can be excluded.

What furniture you need for your outdoor catering depends on several factors. What type of catering do you operate? Should the outdoor area be able to be occupied even in bad weather? Are there natural shade trees or are umbrellas needed? Do you need an additional service station in the outdoor area? Depending on the concept, the answers to these questions will vary. While for a café the tables can be a bit smaller, for a restaurant you need large outdoor tables with enough space for plates, glasses, bread baskets and serving platters.
In our guide you will find help for the design of your outdoor area!

Of course, your concept plays an important role when choosing your outdoor furniture. But beyond that, you should also make sure that your outdoor furniture is actually suitable for the demands of everyday gastronomy. They should also be sturdy, durable and easy to clean. If the outdoor furniture is to remain standing even in bad weather and during the cold season, the material must be up to the challenge. If you have the ability to put the furniture away when it rains and out of the outdoor season, the furniture should be lightweight and stackable.
As soon as it gets warm just put chairs and tables outside? Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Because there are numerous regulations for operating an outdoor area. Depending on whether the outdoor gastronomy is to be operated in a private or public area, these can also differ once again. For example, for gastronomic use of public areas, a special use permit must usually be applied for from the Office for Road Construction and Development.
