Looking ahead and making long-term plans

The restaurant, called Mama Gaia, which is open to all, does not think of three-week periods as the government does. This is disastrous for healthy business operations. Everaarts says, “We’re realistic. We’re looking forward and making plans for the long-term. In response to the massive staff shortage and because the world is changing to vegan, Mama Gaia feels a responsibility to play a role here. To play in it.”

Mama Jaya Academy is for people who are beginners in the hospitality industry. It is a short, six-week online academy. In short videos of no more than five minutes, the participant can absorb the information whenever he wants. “We also have four special live sessions in which fresh packets from a well-known online vegetable supermarket are delivered to your home. Moreover, we will work with a unique method of personal training, which does not yet exist in online catering courses. Also, the guests in the restaurant They deserve all the attention, we do it for the participants.”

“Mama Gaia Academy is also a great option for entrepreneurs who want to increase the knowledge of their employees,” says Everaarts. The participant gains knowledge from the kitchen and in the service. We think that’s the basis. We call it knowledge in ‘service’. When approaching people who are new to the hospitality industry, you can assume that they are people who want to work, but do not yet know exactly where their passion lies. They can learn that at Mama Gaya Academy.”

Everaarts is looking for sponsors for the first 50 entrants

In these times, there is a great need to train new people and that is why the Mama Gaia Academy is looking for sponsors for the first fifty participants for €1,500 per participant. The six-week course can be pursued within three months of February 2022. The participant pays €9.99 per month. “We are deliberately keeping this amount as low as possible to reach as many people as possible. For the same reason, the training is in English and anyone from all over the world can participate.”
