Tell us a bit about yourselves.
We (Monika & Nick, both born in Switzerland) began the journey in 1993. Starting from humble beginnings, running a Swiss Restaurant, we have managed to consistently provide great food and service & secure a reputation of quality eating out.
Tell us about your business.
3 children joined our team and are now actively involved in this family business. 4 years ago we added the Cafe and 7 day operation. Our latest addition is the Vegan Menu and little Vegan shop which are proving to be in constant growing demand.
We are very fortunate to have an amazing team of dedicated, motivated employees who often start during school, receive on the job training and stay until they finished their Uni degree. Usually, a brother, a sister or a friend joins the team which makes it like a big family!
What do you love the most about what you do?
Making people happy. I love to cook and talking to customers cheers me up and quite often inspires me.
What do you think makes you different from other stores?
Swiss style rösti potatoes and fondues are unique to Des Alpes and we offer them in great variety. We work extremely hard to provide our customers with fresh, tasty, healthy, homemade food and everyone loves it! We cater with great effort and care for people with special diets and offer an excellent choice of vegan dishes.
How would you describe your community/customers?
Everyone feels welcome at Des Alpes. We welcome customers from all walks of life including children, dogs, army personnel and for our “Oldies” we offer discounts to Seniors. We love to help school students who are learning German or French and we offer French classes as well as a weekly craft group.
What gets you up in the mornings?
I have to make school lunches and breakfast for the kids and then I go to work!
What do you do when you are not working?
I like yoga, Nia, nature walks, listening to music, cooking, baking, being creative in any kind of way, family get-togethers and holidays on the beach.
What do you look forward to in partnering with Crowd Delivery?
I am excited to be able to provide our food and products to customers who aren’t able to personally come to Des Alpes and we’re excited that Crowd Delivery can enjoy and share with us what we do best!
