This shop will be the first French grocery shop in Glasgow. We will provide a wee part of France to Frenchies and Glaswegians

Meet the team

Cedric 21 Ans 

I am a French native born in Lyon and living in Glasgow. Since moving to Glasgow 3 years ago and the pandemic I was so sad to not get French products anywhere. For Xmas I missed all the classics of French cuisine. Every month my family used to send me product but it just became impossible with Brexit. Waiting a week for a packet of prince de LU just sucks.

So this is it  !! 

I woke up and said let do it open a shop. 

Chris 22 Ans

I am a Scottish graduate with a love for all things French. When Cedric told me about this opportunity, I could not believe that there was not a place to get French products in Glasgow. Online deliveries take so long - we want to bring a wee bit of France to Scotland.

Our Vision

Our shop will provide daily French grocery products, Fromagerie, Charcuterie and Boulangerie. 

We will also provide takeaway cake & coffee and home delivery.

Being away from home can be difficult, we want to bring a sense of community to the frenchies living in Glasgow.

All the money raised will be used for the shop and the exportation of French goods.
