A happy team sets the tone for everything.

It doesn’t take many visits to Quite Simply French to get on personal terms with our friendly team – but if you’ve never been before, here’s a little insight into who you might meet.

Robert Mason

Managing Director

Which three words would you use to describe yourself?
Loyal. Fun. Caring

Zoo Keeper

Laura Quelina

Restaurant Manager

Which three words would you use to describe yourself?
Committed, enthusiastic and humble.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A ballerina (because of the tutu).

What is your philosophy when it comes to food and hospitality?
I say treat your customers like family. Treating them as how I would like to be treated. I believe food should be fresh using seasonal ingredients prepared simply.

What would you choose for your last meal?
Depending on my pre-mortal status, if I’m still lucid and not fed up with life I will have the elixir of life and if I can choose the crockery I want it served in the Holy Grail.

Jen Knowles

Assistant Manager

Which three words would you use to describe yourself?
Caring, loyal, emotional

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always remember the first time I went to Pizza Hut, and they had touch screen tills, I always wanted to use one… that dream came true (not as exciting as I built it up to be) apart from that I wanted to be someone that would help others, so I got a degree in occupational therapy.

What is your philosophy when it comes to food and hospitality?
Working in a restaurant is like being in a family, treat customers and others like you are inviting them into your home.

What would you choose for your last meal?
I know I’m probably expected to say something QSF related, but it would 1,000% be a pizza from vikings in York.

 

Adonia Smith

What did you want to be when you grew up?
An air hostess, but then found out im scared of flying!

What is your philosophy when it comes to food and hospitality?
Be happy, a smile cost nothing & polite (that goes for the customers as well!)

What would you choose for your last meal?
Depending on my mood, either a Homemade Giant Yorkshire Pudding with roast beef dinner inside and litres of gravy. OR Nandos. I know I should choose QSF but can’t beat a homemade roast.
