Two Quebec companies, one of them headed by Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, are collaborating to offer an enriching experience to their customers.
Thus, coffee and pastries will be available in the seven branches of Café Saint-Henri Micro-Torréfacteur and the three bakeries of Le Pain dans les Voiles.
“With the pandemic and the resulting labor shortage, we were looking for a reliable partner to entrust the food program to our branches,” said Sebastien Grenach, owner of Café Saint-Henri Micro-Torréfacteur. In addition to offering high quality products, we know that Le Pain dans les Voiles operates with the greatest respect for producers, from farm to plate, just as we do with our sourcing partners. That is why this relationship was natural for us.”
Both companies started about a decade ago and have grown in popularity quickly. Both of them gained fame throughout the province and even the country. In 2021, Laurent Duvernay Tardif takes the reins of Le Pain dans les Voiles, the family business built by his parents.
“With us, nothing is left to chance in order to offer high-quality products, made according to our values, and the knowledge of the craftsmen behind each of these products. That is why we seek cooperation with partners who share the same values and this is exactly what we found with Saint- Henri Micro-Torréfacteur”, added the man who is also a doctor and footballer.
This long-term partnership will allow the two companies to develop their brands. Thanks to this union, Le Pain dans les voiles strengthens its presence on the island of Montreal while Café Saint-Henri Micro-Torréfacteur adds a presence on South Beach.
