In order to boost the restart of coffee houses, bars and restaurants, from May 15, the City of Vienna is issuing catering vouchers worth 25 or 50 euros to all households in the city – depending on the size of the household.
”Our restaurant scene includes 6.500 businesses, which in turn secures around 60,000 jobs in Vienna and 1.4 billion Euro turnover” said Mayor Michael Ludwig.
Gastronomy is particularly affected by the Corona crisis – directly due to the “lock-down”, and in the long term also due to the absence of tourists.
“The voucher campaign shows that we are fighting for every business and every job,” said Ludwig.
The ”Vienna Gastro Voucher” campaign runs from June to September.
950.000 Viennese households will receive the voucher by post, which they can use at a participating location. One-person households receive a 25 euro voucher, households with more people receive a voucher worth 50 euros.
