beej Benders in the news!

The NOS (Dutch national news channel) recently featured our beej Benders project in Venlo, during a report on research findings from the national Food Service Institute (FSIN).

 
Geert Benders (owner & initiator): “I want to bring craftsmanship in food back to the people, it has disappeared from our shopping streets. I think that’s a real shame. Customers want to see how their food is prepared. Food is about more than just filling our stomachs, we should not forget it’s also a social activity. Just look around our store, it brings people together. It’s really important that this positive experience is reflected on the shopping streets of our cities, which are being spoilt by more and more empty stores.”
