Pierre-Maxime Richer
Pierre Richer, Owner and Chief Operations Officer

In his ‘pre-Green Moustache life’, Pierre’s career was consistently been infused with social interaction, teaching/education, involvement in the community and spending as much time outdoors as humanly possible. After the birth of their third daughter, Pierre and Nicolette both could feel the void in their community when it came to being able to provide their family with nutritious, local, and organic food. Pierre’s inquisitive personality, love for tasty food and natural kitchen skills made him the perfect partner to co-found the very first 100% organic, plant-based café in Canada.

Together, he and Nicolette opened The Green Moustache Organic Café, an educational safe-haven where the community can gather around a bowl of warm soup, a salad bowl containing all the colours of the rainbow, or a boosting nutrient-dense shot of superfoods. As the Director of Operations, Pierre co-creates The Green Moustache’s delicious menu, manages both Whistler locations, and coaches all Green Moustache franchisees to successfully serving their community clean, healing food and juices.
