Johannes Patio Misters Tune Up

Johannes Restaurant in Palm Springs serves European Cuisine from Austrian born Chef/Owner Johannes Bacher. Their patio utilizes a misting system to ensure comfort at all times of the year. The system was tuned up at the beginning of summer ’17 and working perfectly! Our patio misting systems are great for restaurants because they don’t leave any wet residue behind, which means your tables and guests’ food will stay dry.

Our patio misting systems are designed to enhance your restaurant patio dining areas with a cooler atmosphere during the hotter months of the year, to extend your rushes, to increase your capacity and to enhance your ambiance. Misting can provide even the most distracted person relief and relaxation. Food is meant to be, as it always has, a place for all of us to come and be together.

Empowering your restaurant to maintain a consistent revenue stream throughout the year can be a challenge. The very nature of a restaurant circles around “rush” hours and “dead” times. Utilizing patio misting systems can lengthen or even maintain existing peak periods for optimal table turn-over rates while giving your guests the subtle statement that you have carefully considered every detail of comfort. Smoking areas become welcoming and the passing crowds are drawn to your call of comfort.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make your restaurant a hot spot all year round. Contact us to get started with a patio misting system installation.

Low Pressure Misting, “No!” High Pressure Misting “Yessssss!”

Low Pressure Misting, “No!” High Pressure Misting “Yessssss!”

In the mid-80’s, Redlands resident John Gura set out to create a wonderful backyard setting, carefully planning the landscape around a beautiful pool and patio area. Once complete, however, he found it difficult to fully enjoy the fruits of his labor because his West facing outdoor living space took a beating under simmering, seasonal, high heat. He says thoughtfully, “The patio is nice. The pool is nice … but on hot summer days, you couldn’t go out there. It’s tough to go out there and relax with 110 degree temperatures.”

To provide some respite from the sizzling sun, Gura purchased a relatively inexpensive low pressure misting kit from a “big box retailer.” He says he thought he knew what he was doing putting it up around the perimeter of his patio by installing it himself.

He explains, “It was an unsatisfactory system. It didn’t work right. It dripped and the mist never lived up to what I was hoping for.” Frustrated with the performance of the low-pressure mist kit, Gura began to investigate more sophisticated misting and outdoor cooling solutions. He says, “We spent so much money on the backyard to not really use it. I rationalized the added expense of installing a high pressure misting system, contacted Koolfog, and installed quickly.”

It’s often tough to justify a significant investment in your personal outdoor living area. However, if swelling temperatures make you so miserable that you don’t actually utilize your outdoor space to spend time at the BBQ, entertain friends, or simply enjoy the atmosphere … then such a decision may be worth it.

Koolfog takes pride in assessing our customers’ needs. We set out with the intent to exceed customer expectations and make every effort to design the best solution for every situation. Mr. Gura concurs stating, “Since we’ve had Koolfog, it’s the first time we’ve ever had a nice dinner on the patio. The Koolfog misting system made our patio useable. It feels cooler. It’s comfortable. It works like gangbusters … it’s amazing.” Our team at Koolfog, of course, is thrilled with the results at the Gura home.

A Not So Hot Lunch at Panera, Palm Desert

It is May and temperatures are rising fast.

My lead misting system designer for the local Desert region, Steve, has some things that he wants to discuss. But I’m hungry. A little early today … it is around 11:15 a.m. but who is going to argue a free lunch while discussing strategy? So we hop in the car and decide on the fly where we are going to hold this impromptu meeting.
