A venue for every occasion
In our May issue, we examined several ways in which some garden center retailers have branched out into the food service industry by opening cafés and restaurants on their properties. Motivations and methods differ, but many businesses see the benefit in offering a dining experience in addition to their normal operations. At North Haven Gardens in Dallas, Texas, the garden center’s on-site café is only the beginning. The dining space complements the retailer’s art gallery and calendar full of classes and events.
