The third candidate for the beachhunk election of 2022 would like to introduce himself: Joris has been working on the beach at Boomerang Beach for over 7 years. When he had just finished high school, he wanted to take a big trip. He needed some pocket money for that and that’s how his working period at Boomerang Beach started.
The big journey has come. Joris went to Sweden, but then returned to Scheveningen. Furthermore, Joris is still busy with his studies, he is now in his second year of entrepreneurial training.
What do you like most about working on the beach?
“Working on the beach is very relaxed because customers come here to relax. They don’t come for a quick business lunch. This ensures that most customers are happy and cozy. I also like working here at Boomerang beach because it is such an open space, unlike working in a ‘closed’ restaurant. Here you have the beach and the sea in front of you, the dunes behind you.
There is also a good atmosphere, everyone is involved in everything. For example, we all discuss the menu every season.”
What do you dislike about working on the beach?
“Working on the beach means enjoying the nice, warm summer days in a different way. You can go on holiday less quickly in the summer, or go out with your friends because you have to work a lot these days. You may work in nice weather, but you can’t enjoy it with your friends.”
What do you think are the best kind of customers?
“For me, the best customers are those who are impressed by, for example, a good glass of wine, the beautiful location, or the great service. And if they come back after that, then they are immediately my favorite guests. I also have a passion and a lot of interest for wine, so I like to explain a little more about it.”
What do you think are the less nice guests?
“On busy days we really do our best to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible, but sometimes things can go wrong. An example: recently we ran out of chocolate sauce for the chocolate cake. I wanted a satisfied customer so I put a chocolate sauce over it, only that was white sauce. The customer could not appreciate this at all and was also angry about this. I think that’s a less pleasant customer.”
