8 unforgetable Family Days
Family is Daniel Croteau’s most valuable asset. But for him, family encompasses more than just his wife and two daughters. His family includes each one of his employees whom he sincerely appreciates, every single one of his customers, and the entire community he serves with energy and passion.
The ties that tightly bindIt was back in 2008 during a typically homely meal that Mr. Croteau and his family discussed their deep desire to invest in a joint venture. Their greatest wish was to work together and succeed together for the well-being of their tightly knit family.
A family business in the broad sense of the termAt the Croteau family’s Marché Bonichoix, customers are always greeted with a smile, everyone knows that. That’s why a customer nicknamed Daniel “Mr. Smiley.” All the town’s children, whom Daniel treats like his own grandkids, are eager to come back week after week to choose a surprise from his treasure chest. “At a Christmas party, one of my staffers got dressed up as me, with a pillow over his tummy, glasses and the whole shebang. Just thinking about it still makes me laugh!”
A neighbourhood party everyone talks aboutFor the past nine years now, the Croteau family has organized an annual Family Day where the entire community is invited. Hundreds of people show up to savour delicious hot dogs while the kids enjoy themselves in the bounce houses and with the other activities set up just for them. This anticipated event is a huge success each year!
- Over 4,800 hot-dogs devoured since the first Family Day
- At least 2,496 eggs beaten each year to prepare their famous egg tart.
- An average of 8,840 kg of sausages prepared each year by their butchers.
