The Municipality of Eindhoven wants catering entrepreneurs to be advised by Sit & Heat, a company that sells heated cushions. These cushions offer an alternative to ‘traditional’ patio heating.
According to Eindhoven, catering entrepreneurs can save up to 95 per cent on their heating costs with the cushions.
“We really like it when our city centre is busy,” said Monique Esselbrugge, alderman for the city center.
“The terraces provide an attractive ambiance. To be able to receive people hospitably in the winter months, heating is often necessary. But this really needs to be done in a more sustainable way. The energy savings are good for the environment, but also for the entrepreneur,” said Esselbrugge.
