Cafe Du Paris

My café has an outdoor sitting area. The Sunstyle by Sunesta fit my requirements. The patio is 40’ by 12’, so I went with two 20-foot wide awnings. I wanted the shade flexibility two offered. Both are manually operated, which can be a workout. However, it’s easier to adjust, and remotes are too easy to lose. The canopies were pricey but expanded my sitting area, so I should recoup the cost. A drawback is that some of my staff find the crank too difficult to work. The fabric on the two awnings is supposed to be the same color, but in sunlight, they look different. I was told they might have been from different dye lots. Hopefully, they last a long time but not so sure they will as the fabric has begun to fade and rot slightly after only 2 ½ years.
