“In 2014, we made a dream come true: we open our restaurant! As you can imagine, we put all our juice, hands and heart into it. With family. Because that is Mamzel: a family story. My sister Roxanne, my mother Diane and I, Anik. The first few years were rocky, but since 2018, our place has exploded! Good in the mouth, beautiful, warm! Say happy!
2019: The city of Magog “vacates” the city center. Disappointment for traders…
2020-21-22: Epidemic and loss of regiment… 🙁
2023: Labor shortage + inflation.
Next January 18th, we have to repay the 40 thousand given to us by the government. We don't have that. We were very young when it all started… we didn't have wool socks…
If we ask for 60K more, it will be to our suppliers and our employees, because Magog will be quiet in the winter… and above all, to make sure we pay our next boss a salary that lives up to the name.
Thanks for your help.
If you come eat with us, tell us “107” and we know you helped put us back on track :)”
