There’s an old saying – when you want something done, ask a busy mother.
Ariane Daguin founded D’Artagnan in 1985, and treated it like her own child. Along the way, she became a mother. Her daughter Alix grew up at D’Artagnan – offering extra hands in the office and at our events; learning, playing, staying up too late, and eating a lot of good food. Their mother-daughter relationship is part of D’Artagnan history.
D’Artagnan is often called a woman-owned company, but it’s also a mother-owned company.
While building her business, Ariane nurtured her staff, her chef friends, and a whole community of food lovers – along with her daughter. Somehow, she managed to do it all. Because that’s what mothers do.
Today we thank and honor all mothers for working hard, with love in their hearts. For holding our hands and encouraging us. For always being there. We are inspired by each of you.
Happy Mother’s Day!
