Who can resist a freshly made muffin? The regulars at Muffin Break love Lucas’ muffins, and they also love to stop for a chat. Lucas says his customer’s friendly smiles keep him motivated to keep on baking!
“My favourite thing about my customers is that they always try to fill up my tip jar. And I always tell them ‘you returning is my best tip” says Lucas. “My favourite part of my job is baking muffins and making coffees for my customers. I am glad to hear from my customers that they like our shop – that makes my day and it is my motivation to keep going on.”
Since starting at Muffin Break he feels part of the Eastlands family, with regular customers dropping by to share stories about their holidays. Lucas is also really impressed with the support he received during lockdown.
Lucas began working at Muffin Break at Eastlands in December 2020. He knew that Eastlands would be a great location, with lots of customers and a busy centre with regular events. He loves the atmosphere at Eastlands, “The atmosphere in the whole shopping centre makes us feel like we are working with a family. We also feel very safe whenever we are here.”
Lucas can’t pick his favourite muffin: he changes the flavours every day and there is something for everyone – chocolate, berry and more. He adds “We bake all kind of things in our store: not only muffins, but also quiches, pies and sweet desserts.”
