In small rural villages, the total absence of trade is too often synonymous with boredom and gloom. So to reverse the trend, Julien Ablin had a brilliant idea: create a mobile bistro and look for cities without shops. Close-up of an exemplary and inspiring initiative.
His bistro on wheels, Julien Ablin, named him La Guinguette Anjouée, as a nod to his region: Maine-et-Loire.
In the columns ofActu.frthe former restorer looks back at the origins of this original and generous concept:
“This is a project that stems from the first incarceration. With the context, I found myself without activity for two months. There was a professional interrogation. I thought it was time to start my business and do something different.”
“I came across a mobile bar concept launched in Berry. I liked it and I started.”
La Guinguette Anjouée, which started this month, has 16 seats, all on the terrace of course. Goal: to bring life, friendliness and animation to areas abandoned by shops:
“The goal is to get to the municipalities where there are no more, and not to compete with those already established.”
On the menu: hot and cold drinks, beers, wine, charcuterie, cheese boards, sweets… And then, where possible, priority for local and organic products.
Long live the Guinguette Anjouee!
