Jérôme Gilles, wanted to change. At 46, he is about to open a brewery in place of the old pharmacy, in the shopping mall in the Leclerc center in Vitré.
Jérôme Gilles can boast of experience in catering. “From 17 to 25 years old, I was a waiter and head of service on the dining room side”, he informs. With a background in commerce, he branched off to pursue a career in auto centres.
Being a customer of Leclerc, he deplores the vacancy of a beautiful room available. An idea germinates in his head, that of opening a cafe-brasserie-coffee-shop with 200 m² reserved for customers.
At the end of November, customers will be able to access Ammeoz directly from the large car park, without going through the Leclerc gallery. A plus for craftsmen, workers, shopkeepers, business leaders, retirees and others who will be able to take advantage of the premises, from breakfast and in the afternoon with sweets. Of course, there will be an access door on the gallery side.
For lunch, the menu will be tightened and will give pride of place to local products for traditional cuisine. 76 seats will be available to customers. “When I recruited the staff, I expected difficulties, but it was the opposite,” he admits. He thus recruited experienced staff, happy not to work evenings or Sundays.
Opening hours of the gallery
Holder of a license IV, it could however open certain evenings against the backdrop of events (matches, Olympic Games, World Cup, etc.).
The premises, brand new, in addition to the bar and the room with direct access to the gallery, also have an upper floor. One of the rooms is reserved for business seminars and other meetings.
Jérôme Gilles aligned himself with the gallery’s schedules, namely from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
