At the age of 21 Anouk Veen opened her first lunchroom in Grave: Sabor. She knew she would be cut out for this profession. She brainstormed on the interior of her lunchroom. She designed and furnished her lunchroom herself completely. It can best be described as 'young and fresh' and catches the eye between all pubs in Grave. Her excellent coffee surprises both tourists as inhabitants of the village.
The Sit & Heat cushions match her innovative concept. In Grave, Sabor is the first catering establishment offering this modern version of the old-fashioned terrace heaters. As the lunchroom has been open since March 2015, winter is yet to come. In spite of this, the cushions have been used a lot and evoke many positive reactions. "At arrival, some people ask if we can switch them on again", Anouk explains. "If you want to extend your opening hours in the evening, these cushions are just perfect".
I was shocked by the consumption of other terrace heaters
Ready for the winter
As Sabor only offers a couple of seats inside, Anouk intends to use Sit & Heat to extend the number of seats. "It allows me to create 6 extra seats in winter", she explains. In this way, she will soon recover the costs of her investment. Much more important to her, however, is the energy consumption. "I was shocked by the consumption of other terrace heaters", she says. Another reason to purchase Sit & Heat.
