Photovoltaic panels should be installed before the cold weather arrives. Thibault is also considering closing one more day during the week.

For Eddy from the “Friterie du pont” In Legs, there won’t be any bad surprises, because he has a fixed contract until the end of the year. But, for the past month, as a preventive measure, he has shut down one of the 2 tank fryers during off-peak hours and even thinks about closing between the lunchtime and evening rushes.It’s already a saving“, he launches.
