Le Macaron Franchise Story
Le Macaron Founders
Rosalie Guillem and Audrey Saba are the founders of Le Macaron Franchise. They have made it their mission to capture the French spirit in each and every one of their delicacies. They have spent months working with a French-trained pastry chef, and together they selected the finest quality ingredients to create a true French macaron; a true mouthful of heaven.
A Le Macaron Franchise?
Authentic French pastries
Our products practically sell themselves while our Franchise Owners love to provide their guests with an unforgettable experience.
We have the best Chef Pattisier in the business and his team, who handles all of the baking and preparation, and so all pastries are then delivered to each location.
Le Macaron French Pastries® offers several revenue streams for Franchise Owners to take advantage of, including our core streams of macarons, gift boxes, and catering.
Multiple business models
With numerous options to expand and scale, we offer Traditional Pastry Shop at around 800-1000sqft, Permanent Kiosk, Mobile Kiosk, and Food Trucks!
Training and support
While prior experience in the foodservice or retail industries is beneficial, it is not a requirement. If you are coachable and willing to learn, we can train you!
Within our system, we have many husband-wife teams, parents and their children, or siblings who have started the business together.
The main feature of our menu is our signature, handmade, authentic French macarons. We handcraft these delicacies using only the finest ingredients and without any preservatives.
Steps to Eat a Macaron
This requires us to slow down and savor life’s little pleasures and we educate our guests to do exactly that; “First bite is a surprise. Second bite is a flavor. Third bite is a pleasure.™”
Simple + Modern
Our traditional pastry shops, permanent kiosks, mobile kiosks, and food trucks are complete with all the charm of a traditional patisserie. No other pastry shop, bakery, or café can compare.
Our luxurious, signature pink and black gift boxes are available in six, twelve, and twenty-count options. Our guests can choose from their favorite flavors to create a beautiful box of authentic macaron art.
Catering & Events
In addition to our four main business models, Le Macaron French Pastries® also handles Catering and Events. Share our distinct brand of joy with loved ones by offering macarons as gifts, party favors, weddings, baby showers, and more!
There is little competition and a growing industry when it comes to customers who are longing to engage with their food in new, creative ways. Consumers, today, are looking for more of an experience than just a product.
The potential of the U.S. baking and pastry franchise industry
Increased demand for pastries and baked goods has inspired robust market activity over the past few years. This fragmented landscape paves the way for breakout brands like Le Macaron French Pastries® who are seeking a piece of this industry’s pie (or macaron cake) – with a little extra room for those willing to explore multi-unit options.
Specialty retail cafe bakeries are primed to satisfy a growing preference for more complex flavors and textures. As these concepts continue to reshape the U.S. industry, market potential is extremely promising. Despite the changing industry landscape, opportunity remains a staple ingredient.
