Piccolino Restaurant - Birmingham

How Tansun infrared heaters greatly increased turnover at Birmingham's Piccolino Restaurant

Piccolino is a traditional Italian restaurant with a modern twist. It is part of the Individual Restaurant Chain. It offers a combination of both modern and classical Italian dishes prepared right in front of your eyes! The restaurant is based in Brindley Place in Birmingham, and they approached Tansun for a heating solution for their outdoor dining areas.


Piccolino contacted Tansun for an effective heating solution for their outdoor dining area. They were using gas pyramid heaters which were not proving cost efficient, and were using up far too much floor space in the dining areas. They were after something cost effective yet powerful, stylish yet robust. Not only this, but they also required full individual heater controllability.

They were invited into our showroom here at Tansun in Birmingham and had a demonstration of our extensive range of infrared heaters. Shortly after, we went over and did a site survey of their restaurant in Brindley Place.


The final choice of heaters were the Tansun Sorrento Double infrared heaters along with Tansun’s high powered controllers including multi-channel remote controls which allowed individual heaters to be dimmed down to the comfort levels of the customers.

Tansun's Sorrento heaters provide the required amount of heat that they were after, and aesthetically fitted into their restaurant surroundings. With the infrared heaters being robust and designed specifically to combat the draughty and cold areas, it seemed like the perfect heater for them.

Once the high quality infrared heaters were delivered to site, Piccolino’s approved electrical contractors installed the twenty Sorrento Double heaters with ease as well as the controller units.


They loved it! The restaurant itself saw a staggering 50% increase in turnover, just from installing our elegant infrared heaters in their outside area. They found that a lot more of their customers were wanting to dine outside under the warm ambient glow of the heaters and the comfortable heat they gave off.

They were now ten steps ahead of their competitors who were left in the cold, whilst Piccolino’s was buzzing…and still is!

"We have seen a massive increase in turnover since having the Double Sorrentos installed in our Brindley Place restaurant. The restaurant looks inviting from the outside with the warm glow of the heaters, and our customers' outdoor dining experience is now made even more pleasant."
