Several Roll-A-Cover Retractable Roofs Featured in Recent Eater Chicago Article

Chicago, IL – Eater Chicago’s recent article “25 Sheltered Spots for Open-Air Dining in Chicago When It Rains”  features several Roll-A-Cover enclosed restaurants. “Retractable roof coverings and sliding walls — which before 2020 were nice-to-have accouterment — are now vital assets for restaurants as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and more variants emerge,” the article states. Chicago Roll-A-Cover retractable roofs give these restaurants the ability to open and close their roofs on command. When the weather permits, the retractable glass roofs open to the outdoors. Therefore, this provides a beautiful outdoor ambiance and air ventilation. Additionally, when the weather turns, the roofs close and protect diners from the elements while maintaining an outdoor ambiance. This ensures that the restaurants never lose revenue on their patio spaces due to weather. Below are the restaurants featured in the article.
