Meet Nick Mallia of Paris Creperie in Brookline

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nick Mallia.

Nick, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve been involved with Paris Creperie for nearly 14 years! I became the GM after a couple years working as a shift supervisor, and then later focused on launching the catering program that is now a lucrative division of the business. I also am a member of the board of the directors of the Brookline chamber of commerce, working on behalf of Paris Creperie. I manage town wide events that we offer, and participate in the programs committee.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been hurdles along the way, no doubt. Our biggest struggle has been managing to find a way to utilize such a small space with a constantly increasing business trend. Many times our harshest reviews on Yelp are a result of there not being enough space for more tables, so that continues to be a challenge that we work to fix.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Paris Creperie – what should we know?
We are in the crepe business! We have a huge variety of both savory and sweet crepes both in cafe and available for catering. The great thing about crepes is that they cover every meal of the day, whether you’re looking for a small quick snack, or a large satisfying meal. We open for 14 hours a day because of how versatile our product is. I’d say our infusions set us apart from other creperies – we add spices, herbs, or even cheese to our crepe batter for that extra layer of flavor. We are extremely proud of our product, but also of our management style. We are an “open book” company, which means we train every member of our team to understand every facet of the financials, so they better understand how they can impact the bottom line, and increase their individual profit share.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The most important characteristic that success is dependent on is the ability to be a team player. No one here can make this place work as smoothly as it does on their own. Everyone depends on everyone else here!
