Ambiance, Quality, Convenience

What Makes Le Macaron French Pastries Special?

In today’s franchise environment, the drive to scale operations can sometimes dilute experience. Standards can drop in favor of staffing requirements and scheduling, and that can lead to uneven results across locations. Le Macaron takes a different approach, and has centralized our expertise.

We prepare our pastries at a central baking facility and deliver them to our locations nationwide. It’s a flexible and forward-leaning way to work, and it helps ensure that our knowledge pool stays in place and that our standards for quality continue to lead the industry.

There are more than 9,100 bakery cafés operating every day in the U.S., with more expected to join in the coming years. Le Macaron’s centralized baking model helps us stand out from the rest, and frees our owners to concentrate on developing the brand.

Meet Our Founders

There’s something special about the experience of visiting an authentic French pâtisserie.

Le Macaron French Pastries founder Rosalie Guillem knows this from a childhood spent around them.

Rosalie grew up in France, and she loved the regular journeys she and her family made to the local pâtisserie. The sights, scents, and energy of the shop thrilled her; made her want to slow down and savor her sweets and beverages.

When Rosalie moved to the U.S. to work on building a better life for her family, she brought the concept of a pastry shop that captured the essence of the French experience along with her. During the Great Recession, she opened the first Le Macaron French Pastries in Sarasota, Florida with her daughter Audrey, and the brand was underway.
