SARASOTA, FLORIDA, USA, July 6, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — California and Florida are getting a whole lot sweeter as Le Macaron French Pastries continues its franchise expansion efforts across the United States. Locals and tourists alike can now experience a kaleidoscope of colors and flavors as they enjoy the treat deemed “America’s Newest Dessert Darling” by the Specialty Food Association.
Le Macaron French Pastries is announcing the opening of five new franchise locations in major markets in California (San Francisco and Santa Barbara) and Florida (Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami). Additional locations are set to open later this summer in Laguna Beach, Santa Monica, St. Augustine and Estero. With more than 40 locations, the brand is on track for continued growth.
“We are thrilled that our brand continues to expand across America,” said Rosalie Guillem, Le Macaron French Pastries CEO and President. “Florida is where we have made a name for ourselves, and it is wonderful to continue to bring Le Macaron French Pastries to other parts of the Sunshine State. We are also excited to expand in California and to add to our growing presence on the West Coast.”
Le Macaron French Pastries opened its first store in September 2009 and began franchising in late 2012. Today, most locations are franchisee owned and operated. The European-inspired pȃtisserie concept is the creation of mother-daughter duo Rosalie Guillem and Audrey Guillem-Saba, who founded the business shortly after coming to the U.S. from France. Featuring the popular French macaron, Le Macaron French Pastries offers customers 20 different flavors of the dessert, which are constantly changing as ingredients from across the globe become highlighted. From vanilla imported from Madagascar to Belgian chocolate, guests are able to enjoy the finest of macaron flavors, along with an assortment of gourmet chocolates, imported French-style gelato, espresso, and other classic French pastries in a cafe surrounded by luxury.
“When I first stepped into Le Macaron French Pastries, I knew the brand was different from any other,” said Benjamin Brizard, owner of the Le Macaron French Pastries franchise opening in San Francisco. “As I met more of the franchisees and talked with Rosalie, I witnessed the passion and love that went into this concept and I wanted to be a part of it. The choice to become a member of the Le Macaron family was an easy one to make.”
