Cafe de Pierre to take over Patisserie Valerie's contract with Debenhams
Patisserie Valerie's contract with Debenhams shops have now been awarded to French patessierie chain Cafe de Pierre.
Operated by The Lux Management and Investment Group – behind Caffe Concerto and The Grand Caffe – the brand has already taken over concessions in the department stores in London’s Oxford Street, Westfield London, Wandsworth, Stevenage, Chelmsford, Telford, and Liverpool. It will soon extend its offerings to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Dublin and Cardiff.
Lux has employed more than 150 ex-Patisserie Valerie employees, who had been made redundant after the company fell into administration earlier this year and plans to take on a further 200 staff in the coming months.
Director Mr Borjak said: “This is a very exciting time for the Lux Group, we have grown year on year and we’re happy that Cafe De Pierre will provide a pleasant and enjoyable oasis for not only shoppers at Debenhams, but also lovers of quality French food and patisserie.”
Café De Pierre outlets will offer patisserie as well brasserie-style light lunches.
