In our shops the customer is pampered in the old-fashioned way

In addition to three cheese farms, where over one million visitors are informed about the craft of the clog-maker and the cheese maker each year, Henri Willig has a number of tourist shops and several modern luxury cheese gift shops under the name Cheese & More by Henri Willig.

Our farms and shops are a particularly popular attraction among tourists and tour operators because of their authentic Dutch appearance, their informative character and the fact that all cheeses can be sampled. seven days a week, our Store Managers and sales staff are ready to inform and advise all customers about our special cheeses and other products. As a sales employee in our shops, you are a host/hostess and you speak to the customers in their own language and sell our delicious cheese and related products. it is precisely this and working with tourists from different cultures that makes working at Henri Willig special and different. At our cheese farms we mainly receive groups of tourists and, besides being a host/hostess, you will also tell the cheese story to groups in their own language. The interaction with customers makes working in a Henri Willig shop a joy every day.

After talking to many people in my immediate circle, I quit my job as a dietician and asked if I could work full-time at Henri Willig. This was a good choice. At a later stage, I talked to my then manager about the Henri Willig Academy for Store Managers and decided to participate in it. A year later, I became Store Manager of Cheese & More Bloemenmarkt. I am very proud of the path I have taken.

What have you achieved with your team and what are you most proud of?

team members have sometimes said that they do not feel any distance between them and me as a manager. I see in practice that my colleagues feel free to think along with me and to contribute ideas. I take that as a big compliment
