Emma And Marco
Emmanuelle and Marco arrived in 2009 with a dream of sharing French street food with New Zealanders. Originally from the South of France, Emmanuelle worked in the marketing license department of well known Entertainment companies such as Europacorp or popular TV channel TF1. Passionate about travel and food, New Zealand seemed the perfect place to start her own business together. Part French- Part New Zealander, Marco spend fifteen years in France setting up a successful chauffeur- driven service company. Also passionate about food, Marco has brought the perfect understanding between the French and New Zealand culinary culture making the menu world-famous in Wellington. The couple started with the Manners Mall shop, a nice little “hole in the wall”, then opened a bistrot type in Petone two years later and opened in Ponsonby Central in 2014. They have also now approached the retail business with pre-packed crêpes selling in Moore Wilson's, Nosh and Farro.
After a few years in France working as a manager in The Casino de Paris, Tom decided to hit the road and go as far as he could to find new adventures in his life. After quite a long stay in South America, he arrived in the team in 2013. With only a few months left on his working holiday visa he decided to have a nice galette in Wellington and share his fresh experience in New Zealand with a fellow countryman. Little did he know that we where looking at that precise moment for someone on (very) short notice. After about 3 mins of talking and an immediate chemistry, Tom was in the shop helping out and has never left since :-) He has now became a cornerstone of the team, essential to the spirit of the brand and the good vibes in Wellington. His love for Aotearoa has recently pushed him to apply for residency.
Ladies and gentlemen.. from the depths of Koh Tao, 1.8 m of genuine awesomeness, fluent in ancient Britany slang and bearing the largest lungs in the team.. we give you Gaëtan, the aquatic crêpe master! Also known as "Gueguett", he originally joined Crêpes A Go Go in 2012 but spent the last 2 years and a half on a little island of the Gulf of Thailand, learning to hold is breath for up to 6 mins and perfecting his Jedi Mind Crêpe Tricks. He also learned to master liquid in all its forms including non-water substances. He's kind of our personal Master Yoda, we like to think he spent his time meditating underwater or on a rock under a tree. After such a period of warm climate and relaxed atmosphere, what better choice could come to mind than Dunedin? We're really glad he made that choice though, allowing us to set up in the heart of one of the coolest cities we've seen in Aotearoa !
