Jacques et Lilie coffee van

Paul and I are not only cousins but also best friends. We started the Jacques et Lilie adventure 3 years ago with the desire to take on the legacy and heritage of our grandparents, bakers in the south west of France. They used to own a renowned bakery at the seaside of Bordeaux in Cap Ferret, where we spent all of our summers and forged our best memories.

It is these loving memories, which we have both held so dear, that inspired us to work together to revive our family tradition and bake cakes that are based on the family recipes passed down from generation to generation.

What started as some home deliveries on our vintage bikes quickly grew into trading regularly at markets, supplying cafés and hotels weekly, and catering for weddings and events.

However we feel now that it is time to step up to the next level, which was our dream from the beginning: converting a 2CV fourgonnette into a coffee-van and creating our own little mobile patisserie and salon de thé shop.

And all we need is your help to be able to do it!!!

Paul et moi ne sommes pas seulement cousins mais aussi meilleurs amis du monde.

Nous avons commencé l’aventure Jacques et Lilie  il ya 3 ans avec le projet de reprendre l’héritage familiale de nos grands-parents, pâtissiers dans le Sud-Ouest de la France.

En effet Ils étaient les fondateurs d’une patisserie de renom sur la presqu’île du Cap Ferret où nous avons passé tous nos étés et forgé nos meilleurs souvenirs.

Ce sont ces souvenirs si chers à nos coeurs qui nous ont insprié à travailler ensemble pour faire revivre la tradition et les recettes familiales transmises de génération en génération.

Ce qui a commencé par des livraisons à domicile en vélo, s’est très vite transformé en marchés réguliers, fournir plusieurs cafés et hotels et travailler sur des évènements et mariages.

Cependant nous sentons qu’il est temps de passer à l’étape supérieure et à ce qui était notre idée et rêve depuis le début: convertir une 2 cheveaux fourgonnette en un coffee van et créeer de cette facon notre propre petite patisserie mobile.

 Et c’est pour cela que nous avons besoin de vous!

The money raised will go into :

-       Buying the iconic vintage 2CV fourgonette AK400

-       Buying a kick-ass commercial coffee machine

-       Repairing and servicing the van

-       Converting it into a coffee van ;

-       Repainting it and putting our beautiful Jacques and Lilie logo on it ;

-       Paying for insurance, registration, and a parking place for our brand new Jacques et Lilie Coffee van.

We hope to start 2019 with our new coffee van.
Your support would mean everything to us as any donation whatever the size means getting closer to our dream.

To say thank you for your help, in the Jacques et Lilie way, we will be giving a variety of rewards ranging from postcards, to fridge magnets, cannelés vouchers to an exclusive tote bag, plus reusable coffee cups and an invitation to the inauguration of our little coffee van.

Thanks again and don’t hesitate to share the campaign and spread the word!

Paul and Amandine
