Although the quality of your cuisine is crucial to customer satisfaction… relying solely on it is not the best solution, because even with an excellent menu, if your restaurant is too noisy, customers will be reluctant to return and will talk negatively about it to others. That’s why acoustic comfort is becoming a major issue for your restaurant.
More and more people today are hypersensitive to noise, feeling uncomfortable in a loud environment. This makes it difficult for them to have lunch in a noisy environment, where relaxation should take precedence.
