"It all started in the shed of our backyard" Entrepreneur Ayhan says. Together with two friends he started 'Club HAC', a kind of forerunner of the modern beer shack. "We were approximately 15 years old and wanted to earn some extra money by selling alcohol and French fries, initially for friends only. Soon, however, we didn’t even know half of our visitors. After two years we had to quit. There were more people in our garden than in the local pub…and we didn’t have a toilet."
We can be meaningful for everyone
In the meantime Ayhan owns nine catering establishments. This true entrepreneur likes challenges such as opening new restaurants. "whether someone is up to tapas, going out or is getting married, I (together with my partners and employees) like to be part of it". The same goes for Tapamor, which has been fitted with two Sit & Heat lounge sofas since April.
Guests should imagine themselves being on a holiday
The overall experience matters
Tapamor is a Spanish tapas restaurant, where cosiness comes first. The Sit & Heat cushions match this philosophy. Ayhan and his manager agree: "The best compliment we can get is that people imagine themselves being on a holiday. It means guests have a relaxed, wonderful time. It’s the best you can give to others. Each detail can contribute to this feeling".
It’s the talk of the town
"Last Summer we have renovated our terrace and amongst others added Sit & Heat cushions, which attract a lot of people", Avalon says. "It is so innovative, it’s the talk of the town, which is good for both, the Sit & Heat company and us. Especially on cold days, Sit & Heat benches are taken immediately".
