1.When did you open My pop company and what happened since ?

The opening was Tuesday 6th of november, so just a week ago and we still do have a lot of customers since that day !

2.Tell us a little about your career and how did you get the idea of such restaurant ?

After years working how to marry mediterranean table flavors at La Voile Rouge in Saint Tropez, I decided to open my first restaurant La Tête Ailleurs in Paris, which proposed fresh tapas.  Then i opened Bastide Blanche, a traditional parisian brewery based on a mediterranean cuisine with quality products. I often use the term “bistronomie” to describe my restaurants because I choose to mix parisian bistrot way with gastronomic meals.

Then I wanted to open a grill meat formula concept and I had the idea of a contemporary fast food where all the social classe can meet, something friendly and unifying with quality products and little prices.
