Patisserie jobs’ boost for town

A PATISSERIE cafe is opening in Eastbourne – bringing with it 25 new jobs.

The well-known chain Patisserie Valerie will launch its 59th cafe in Eastbourne this month, with the town’s mayor Councillor Mike Thomspon officially opening the store on Saturday, August 4.

It will be at 142 Terminus Road and the company’s chief executive officer Paul May said he was delighted to be opening in Eastbourne and is keen to extend a warm welcome to local residents and visitors.

“Despite the current climate of doom and gloom,” he said, “we have been able to bring investment and new jobs to the UK’s high streets.

“If anything, the enthusiasm of the public has taken us by surprise so we have continued to look for high-quality shopping venues in which to open.

“Everybody likes to indulge in a treat, which is essentially what Patisserie Valerie is all about- the excellent service we offer with all of the products we provide.

“All of this puts us in a different market place from any other chain and is why we have been able to gain so many new customers in the last year and continue to provide much needed jobs.”
