The summer cannot last long enough for most catering entrepreneurs, but the terrace season is almost over. And that is why catering establishments are exploring the possibilities of being able to continue to receive guests even in bad weather, now that the indoor capacity is limited by the 1.5 meter rules.
According to Koninklijke Horeca Nederland, entrepreneurs are not only looking at roofs, or things such as heating, but also at the temporary terrace extension, so that many catering entrepreneurs could still make some turnover in the summer months.
“Most permits for the terrace extension run until October or November. The requirements vary per municipality, such as whether or not outside heating. As far as the corona rules are concerned, an outside terrace must be open on three sides or without a roof.” The sector organization hopes that municipalities will extend the relaxed rules.
