Entrepreneur of the month: Danny Smit
Since January 2018, Danny Smit is running Amstel Place, the restaurant in AmstelHome. This week he celebrated Amstel Place's 1-year existence during the New Years Drinks together with the residents of AmstelHome.
Danny's initial plan for the future was to work as an ambulance driver, then his mother joked "Why don't you work in the food service industry". He has completed the studies of Food Service Industry Assistant and Chef Level 2. He has been working in the catering industry since his 18th. Ever since he can't imagine working in any other industry.
"It was always my dream to start a business of my own, then Amstel Place came on my way". Together with his parents and 2 other employees of which one is a resident of AmstelHome, he runs Amstel Place. Danny also works in the kitchen and gets his inspiration for the menu from previous working experiences. He recommends one of the 7 burgers from all wind directions, his own favorite is North-America.
"Amstel Place stands for good food at affordable prices and a nice place to get together" according to Danny. Amstel Place is opened from Monday until Friday from 11 AM until 10 PM.
