In Hungary, most restaurants do not provide access for people with disabilities, nor are they child-friendly.
The restaurant (Ízlelő) provides training and employment for people with intellectual and physical disabilities, and at the same time offers a nutritious dining alternative for the community. After working and gaining experience in the restaurant, beneficiaries go on to find employment in the open job market. The restaurant recently expanded its seating capacity 4-fold and is planning to replicate its model in 3-5 other locations in the next 5 years.
