But who are “we”?
Firstly, we are a coming-together of three people who are passionate about Food. Here are our profiles:
VIRGINIE HAS ONE AIM: TO CONVERT YOUR IDEA INTO A SUSTAINABLE PROJECT.
Fashioning a concept which suits you best and to breathe that little something extra into it which will make all the difference. From product to positioning through the target and the definition of the marketing plan, this challenger at heart screens everything. Each project has its tailor-made strategy. What is Virginie’s favourite thing about food? Conviviality! So you can count on her to share your ambition: to create a warm, friendly and unique place which will bring about success.
WHAT YOU WILL LIKE ABOUT HER:
“In the food business, where the devil is in the detail, Virginie dots the “i”s and crosses the “t”s. Determined and rounded, she is what I would call a ‘self-starter’: invested and terribly clairvoyant. With a bubbly sense of humour, she is a fighter who is devoted to her projects and her teams, who only ever does things with conviction”
Robin Blondel, Global Head of Product & Marketing @ Exki

Veilleur de rentabilité
IN THE BUSINESS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS, CHRISTIAN HAS BEEN A BUTCHER, A CHARCUTIER, RESTAURANT OWNER AND WINEMAKER (THAT’S ALL!).
He is behind the thrust given to the "Schievelavabo" restaurant concept where he wanted to mix several audiences around the same convivial space. The wine bar which he will open one day will be a must-visit meeting place for friends! This lover of food and the best produce is also a project enabler, a specialist who can unlock problems by finding realistic solutions. On the budget side, Christian keeps a close eye on things so that your culinary dream can be transformed into a flourishing business.
WHAT YOU WILL LIKE ABOUT HIM:
“In his work, his actions or among friends, Christian is someone who keeps his word. He is what I would call a man who conducts himself correctly. He manages his business as he manages his relations with others: in a very straight manner. Frank and direct, he also knows how to talk about things when he feels that something is not right. What's more, this is above all someone of the profession, passionate about wine with a vast knowledge of food and products.”

Optimisatrice de projet
TCHOP IS SOLID KNOW-HOW COMBINED WITH UNFAILING GOOD HUMOUR.
With several restaurant launches under her belt (for herself and for others) and numerous culinary journeys, she knows all about operations. Support, brainstorming, negotiating surface area, investment, networking: Tchop is there at all stages of your project, with her experience up her sleeve, always in no stress mode. And she will not stop at just theory! Tchop takes to “being in the room” like a fish does to water, and will report herself as present right from the first days of your opening.
WHAT YOU WILL LIKE ABOUT HER:
“A sitcom always has its central character: Tchop. This easy-going champion of extroverts has made her mark on Brussels’ minds. At both these addresses – Oui-Oui and Eat - she balanced a concept which we will call a "BLT buffet" which gave the whole of informed Brussels something to chew on. A pioneer of the upsurge of neo-diners, Tchop undoubtedly sends out positive waves.”
