When it is the boss's birthday and they are usually in the office before 6am, the surprise breakfast must be ready at dawn.

To celebrate the 50th birthday of the director and owner of the company, the board of directors and employees were up before the rooster. It is not easy to surprise an early bird like François Pugliese. One Monday morning, the director was amazed to discover a white tent in the parking lot in front of Elite headquarters in Aubonne with his team fresh out of bed... well almost.
