Listen as host Dean Rotbart interviews restaurateurs Pierre Vandamme and Philippe Wyffels, co-founders of Bruges Waffles & Frites, on how they created a small, but booming, restaurant chain serving authentic Belgian food. Pierre and Philippe, both originally from Belgium, had little experience in the restaurant industry when they began. Starting with a waffle cart, they have since turned their concept into a fast casual franchise.
In the interview they discuss how they grew their business with small steps to where it is today. They also discuss the advantages of being in the fast casual category, compared to the “quick serve” fast food category.
