The new Burger King takes shape, next to the Cineville, in La Roche-sur-Yon. Work began in early July. The new restaurant will seat 220 people seated.
The exact date of opening is not yet known. But the Burger King of La Roche-sur-Yon, which replaces the Quick Street François-Cevert, will open at the end of September.
"The work is progressing well. We will be in time ", rejoices David Fortin, manager of the brand in La Roche-sur-Yon and Sables-d'Olonne.
All the interior is redone
He chose to keep only the frame of the old Quick:
"He was old enough, and we preferred to do it all over again. " One of the hallmarks of Burger King is the customization of the sandwich:
"We had to redo all the kitchens so they could be computerized, and orders would appear on employees' screens. " If the taste of Burger King is recognized, it is partly thanks to the cooking of its meat with the flame. There too,
"It was different from Quick, so we had to rethink the kitchen part to allow this method of cooking. "
The brand has already recruited 70 people at 24 hours on a permanent contract. There are still some vacancies:
"Jobseekers can still apply by email to [email protected] stating that it is La Roche-sur-Yon, or directly on our website", details David Fortin.
Five weeks of training for employees
Several teammates of the former Quick have also chosen to continue the adventure with Burger King.
"Once selected, employees have three weeks of theoretical training, including hygiene rules. Then they go off for two weeks in one of the Burger Kings in the area. "
David Fortin has already lived:
"Before being a franchisee, I was first a teammate at Quick. There are prospects for evolution, because by 2020, the goal is to have 500 Burger King in France. The bar of 300 has already been exceeded. In addition, six teammates that I recruited from the 60 at Les Sables became manager in a year and a half. This is proof that evolution is possible »
The other Burger King of the department, in Sables-d'Olonne, it is David who also gave birth to it:
"This is my second opening so I already know what it is. Forcibly, it removes a little pressure. "
That of La Roche-sur-Yon is quite important, with more than 330 m2, including a terrace of a little over 100m2:
"At Les Sables, there are only four control terminals, there will be nine! " The space dedicated to children will remain closed:
"Families like to be out of the way, and guests are not bothered by the noise. " Customers, there will be, because the store can accommodate up to 220 people seated, including 60 on the terrace.
