Pubs and Restaurants

Setting the right tone and ambience doesn’t start when your guests walk through the door. It begins when they arrive in your car park.

The hospitality industry has faced several difficult years because of the pandemic. In order to bounce back bigger and better than before, leveraging every tool available is vital.

Your car park can help you access new revenue streams and provide services that enhance the experience your guests and patrons have when they visit, elevating their stay and increasing the likelihood of returning customers.

Car park management for pubs & restaurants

A car park is a powerful asset for any business in the hospitality sector. With the right management, it becomes an inviting location, one that encourages repeat visits and helps your business to begin making a strong impression from the instant your guests arrive.

While the norm is to offer free parking for guests, the reality is that all too often, these spaces are abused by other motorists, including those parking to go somewhere else, customers leaving their vehicles overnight or local residents.

This abuse can cause a business to look busier than it actually is. As a result, genuine customers may choose to go elsewhere, maybe even your competitors. It can also reduce footfall, in some cases, up to as much as 25%.

  • We had an issue with space availability which was compounded by non-customers using the site and some poor parking practices. The Parkingeye team transformed the site in a matter of weeks with minimum fuss - congestion is a thing of the past, there's adequate space for hungry customers and complaints are non-existent. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
