Bon Anniversaire – celebrating 20 years today. - 29/11/16

“I can hardly believe the 20th anniversary of my restaurant on 1st December. For any business in Lancaster that’s quite a milestone these days, but Quite Simply French is also having its most successful year yet.

It’s been a tough, fun adventure. Any successful business owner knows that unless you’ve a real passion for what you’re doing you’re likely to fail. It’s all about delivering excellence and customer service; that’s what makes the difference to people.”

I never planned to buy a restaurant but the opportunity came up when I was 23 and with a £ 5,000 loan from my family and took the plunge. I was a working class youngster and suddenly I was a businessman; it was a huge learning curve. In the early days our wage percentage was just 2% as I was doing everything – cleaning, washing up, front of house!

I want to dedicate this milestone of 20 years to all my loyal customers and my great team. Thank you for making us number one in Lancaster and and thank you for your custom.”  Rob Mason, founder and Managing Director.

To celebrate our two decades, we have been running a competition 20 FAB years. The last prize of FREE FOOD for YEAR, which will be announced on Christmas Eve.
