At Quimper, La Roulotte de Sillery, the food cart smells of forgiveness – Quimper
Hungry stomachs crowded on Tuesday, March 14 at 12:30 PM in front of the EA Sillery’s Cuzon location in Quimper. A delicious aroma of fried onions and grilled meat wafts from La Roulotte de Sillery, the mod company’s all-in-one food truck. “Today, this opening is the embodiment of a project we’ve worked on for nearly a year,” announces Letitia Cobbett, Vice Principal at EA Sillery, with a full smile. This modified company has everything a traditional company has except that it has 80% people with disabilities among its employees. Its main activities? Packaging.
The area lacks a place to eat
The idea of starting a food truck started from noticing that there was no place to eat in the Cozon area. The employees of the modified company and the employees of neighboring Esat, that is, about sixty people, do not have a canteen or self-service.” So the project was implemented step by step. The Franco-British Sillery Foundation, which bought the modified company in 2015, financed the purchase and equipment of the food truck, with an amount of 130 thousand After that, a call for applications was launched to find a cook. It was Christophe Maget, a restaurateur well known to the Daurunnenest, who got the job. This cook was at the helm of two restaurants in the city of Ben Sardines. Says the chef, who has at least 40 years of experience “I love challenges and I also like the idea of working with people with disabilities.”
Sensitive and tolerant customers
On the food cart, Christophe Maget can count on the assistance of head chef Yan Le Page. This disabled worker has been employed by EA Sillery for two years. “Since February 28, opening day, we’ve had up to 45 customers at lunchtime,” says the chef, full of enthusiasm. Clients who are also sensitive to having a worker with a disability. They are very forgiving. “They understand that we don’t necessarily go at the same speed as others,” adds Christophe, who shows remarkable patience and kindness with his writer.
