Cafe De Pierre to replace Patisserie Valerie sites in Debenhams

The Lux Management and Investment Group, the company behind the subsidiaries Caffe Concerto and The Grand Caffe – the Italian-inspired restaurant – and now Cafe De Pierre, has partnered with Debenhams for the relaunch of its French patisserie/brasserie concept.

Cafe De Pierre has now taken over ex-Patisserie Valerie sites with new branches located nationally within Debenhams stores; based in London’s Oxford Street, Westfield London, Wandsworth, Stevenage, Chelmsford, Telford, Wandsworth and Liverpool.

There are also plans to launch outlets at Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Dublin, and Cardiff.

Over 150 ex-Patisserie Valerie staff who were made redundant as a result of closures have also been hired to work at Cafe De Pierre and the patisserie/brasserie is looking to recruit a further 200 staff in the coming months as more stores open nationwide.

Mohammad Borjak, director of Lux Management and Investment Group, said: “This is a very exciting time for The Lux Group, we have grown year on year and we’re happy that Cafe De Pierre will provide a pleasant and enjoyable oasis for not only shoppers at Debenhams, but also lovers of quality French food and patisserie.”
